Especially when it comes to our internal dialouge concerning others. When you are in an anxious state, you are hyper vigilant and focused.
You also seem to base your value on those around you, instead of an internal respect. You want all in the world to like you and respond to you, as this feedback is what you base your worth upon. This causes conflict, because not everyone is going to connect with you at all times.
There is a difference between loving all creation, having friends and feeling worthy . When you understand the difference, anxiety will begin to disappear.
Loving everyone is a state of mind, It is the way you conduct your life. It is the silent prayer you send every person you meet and the kindness you show for all mankind. It is how we are meant to be and how we find balance, by vibrating at our highest level and sharing that vibe with everyone. It is beautiful.
However, it does not mean that we are failures if the person across the street does not attend our party. Or if a group of people do not invite you out to dinner and you happen to find out about the exclusion. No, this is not the same, this is about tribes. You need a tribe of people around you to thrive. We are beings made to be connected and it is imperative we surround ourselves with like-minded people to lift us up, hold us in the light and to create with. Your tribe may be your family, a group you belong to, long time friends or even just one person. It is all good. These are the peeps that are there for you to pick you up, dust your off and tell you get moving. However, even these people, your tribe, are not the determining factor of your value.
Your value is an internal job. Your worth is how you feel about yourself and no one external need be part of that. Your value does not decrease because of someone’s inability to see your worth.
Love yourself no matter what. When you mess up. When you are excluded. When others may not respond as you would like them to. Whenever. Always.
This is the way to create harmony within… when you stop worrying about what others think about you and you start believing what God knows about you.
Honor yourself. You are a reflection of everything in this Universe. Connect with that truth and anxiety will not have a place in your life.
