Worthy Of You

Worthy Of You

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Ranting about as usual..

"
Life is too short. Too short to really care about who does or does not feel good about you. Or think about whether you're likeable enough or not. 

Trying to impress people has never been a good thing. You end up getting hurt yourself. And shattered by the one you were inspired with. 'Cause that's what people do. They ruin your self-respect and it gives 'em this power... a superiority complex, that they are above you... it's a mindset and you can not change that. 

What you can do is get away from them. As fast as you can. And never look back. In the end, you'll find the ones really worthy of you without even trying. 

Life is short. Enjoy it to its fullest. As much as you can. For life can be lived without people and without love as well. You don't need love in charity, right? It finds its way over to you if it REALLY is yours.
 
Life can be meaningful and so much more if you only knew the right ones for you.

It's funny; I came across this when I was most fearful for my future and beyond... Yet, this instilled so much hope in me to cast away my worries and focus on simply enjoying life. Sure, things can happen that may deter us or steer a different path, but to have that will to keep going... That takes courage and emotional strength. Because we all know life doesn't give us what we think we deserve. Thank you for sharing this!

No matter how long humans can live, life will always be "too short." I entirely agree that it is important to not take one's life and one's good fortunes lightly and that it is good to appreciate these things.

As far as the comments of other people go in impacting one's self-esteem, it probably depends on the person. Some humans are more sensitive than others and become disappointed when someone says something they do not like. It is important for us to be aware of the words we say to other people because what may seem innocuous to the speaker may be seen as hurtful or isolating to the listener.

People who are close to one another should have two qualities: (1) they should be aware of the feelings of the other person, such that they continually support the growth of the person even if it entails logical, constructive criticism; (2) be aware that you are dealing with humans and that it is entirely possible that they are saying or doing something out of emotion, but don't really mean it. Be forgiving and understanding of them.

However, those humans who continuously want to exert power over you, are stubborn about getting their way over yours, who revel in your misfortune and weakness, who could potentially be sociopaths, psychopaths, or emotionally immature adults, should be distanced from you. You must be strong willed against them. It gets complicated, however, if they are part of your family...

Remember that you are not living life passively. To live life to the fullest and to appreciate life is to be aggressive and assertive in your life. You are the one in control and you will do what you intend.

I can relate. Amen to your first part.
You're right there's more to life than the concept of love as love between two people but it seems senseless to me and although I had very bad experiences similar to what you expressed in the first paragraph and although I've been rid of love quite a few times again after that, I don't want to miss it or give it up. Sure you can live without it but life wouldn't feel filled to me, then. It'd defeat it in a way.
Charity is another form of love to me, a more selfless one without expectations that's what makes it purer. If you applied the same to a relationship between two lovers, less expectations, it'd be more satisfying maybe too but we always seem to build up certain expectations with the ones we're with...
You're very right with the last sentence although I see two ways of interpreting it, either you still stick to people and your happiness depending on people or you fill yourself with it by doing things for yourself or for others as you mentioned charity (which actually is also doing things for yourself because I think it also satisfies your ego in a way, if you love to help other people you're also doing it because it makes you feel good but that's a normal shade of egoism, sorry too much psychology here but I'm really into it, also into thinking way too much and far as you can see).
I like your reflections in general though.

This a sad and salutary piece. It is certainly true that we need to be self-possessed and choose friends wisely. But this writing speaks of painful experiences.

I think it's really easy to feel inferior to others if low self esteem is present in the mindset. It's easy to hand someone the keys to your own happiness when you have no confidence in yourself.
As time goes by this 'reliance' on people will wane even for those who are deeply ingrained with the feeling that they are not good enough.
Another thought-provoking piece from your pen which is wise beyond it's years, old soul.

I second that thought ☺
Life is too short....that it certainly is. Trying to impress is never a good thing - I like that line because it is so very true, but I have always just been me and if people don't like who I am then so what.
I feel that this piece was written after a bad time. But time moves on and the ones who truly love you and care about you will always be there for you. While the others....who cares.
