Telling myself this.. until it sticks:
not because of the job I have or the things I have but because
of what’s in my heart and up here in my brain and my chosen behaviors.
I am human so I matter. All of human life matters,
so why would I have the belief that I matter only if I have a job?
You matter because of your actions, your heart, and your mind not because of things you have.
I have a distorted core belief that love and worthiness are conditional upon doing a great job, having a strong career, etc.
Where would that core belief come from?
I am learning how I adopted these core beliefs: from early influencers in my life. I am also learning how I can choose to develop my own set of core beliefs based on my values.
