STOP telling yourself that you are not worthy. ⁠ ⁠ This is a core belief that so many of us have. ⁠ ⁠ But it simply is not true. ⁠ ⁠ I often have some version of this conversation with my clients at some point. ⁠ ⁠ Me: What makes someone worthy?⁠ ⁠ Client: I don't know. I guess if they have a job or if they have money.⁠ ⁠ Me: So what if someone doesn't have a job or have money? Does this mean they are not worthy? What if they lost their job because of the pandemic and what if they no longer have money because unemployment ran out?⁠ ⁠ Client: Well, I mean, they still could be worthy because at least they had a job at one point and were able to take care of themselves financially.⁠ ⁠ Me: So what about people who have disabilities and can't work or take care of themselves financially? Does this make them unworthy?⁠ ⁠ Client: Well no.⁠ ⁠ And we go on and on in this question until the client begins to recognize that there is something inherent about dignity and worth that doesn't come from what happened to us, what we have, what we do, etc. Once they come to this understanding, it doesn't mean that they magically start thinking they are worthy. But it does provide information to help them begin the process of questioning whether the thoughts they have about themselves are actually true.⁠ ⁠ The thought that one isn't worthy is never true.⁠ ⁠ STOP telling yourself that you aren't worthy.
