5 Things That Happen When You Know Your Worth

One of the most freeing things you'll feel

Knowing your worth is one of the greatest accomplishments you will make. Many people go through life and relationship after relationship never understanding why they feel like less of person when they end.

But it is because most people don't understand they are worth so much more than they give themselves credit for. You become a new person when you discover what you deserve in life and from relationships. Here are the top five things that happen when you understand your worth:

1. You feel more confident.

You know who you are as a person. You love yourself and it radiates off of you.

2. You understand what you deserve.

You know what you deserve from the relationships you have. You no longer feel like the small person you once did. You are strong and independent; you don’t deserve to take any shit from anyone and you know that now.

3. You’re happier.

The weight is off your shoulders, and you are truly happy. You feel free... free from feeling like less of a person because of the way someone treated you.

4. You don’t settle.

You will never again settle for less than you deserve. You know you deserve someone who is going to treat you in the most loving a loyal way. You will never again settle for a love that lacks depth, passion, or trust. You know what you are worth and you know it will take a special person to make you fall again. But you are willing to wait because you don’t want to waste any more time with someone who treats you any less.

5. The people around you treat you better.

The people around you sense your new sense of confidence. They understand you are no longer the confused girl you once were. Your friends will be so beyond proud of you for finally understanding what you deserve because they have known it all along.

You are worth more than you will ever understand but knowing your worth is one of the most satisfying and life-changing things to understand. Be strong and stay confident.

An Open Letter To The Judgmental People In My Hometown

Imperfections are what gives a diamond its value.

Dear judgemental, simple minded people from my hometown,

I am sorry that I have never met your level of perfection.

Coming from a small town, everyone settles to the norm of the people around them. Unlike you all, I have always been a little bit different.

I've never understood why everyone always seems to feel the need to talk down to the next person. People love to gossip about a situation as long as the situation has nothing to do with them. For every move I made, someone was always there to bring out the negativity in the situation. You all are always sweeping around somebody else's doorstep when I know your doorstep is not clean. Maybe it is time to buy a new broom. I know that I cannot please everybody and that I will also not be liked by everybody. However, I deserve respect just as the next person.

I hope for the sake of the future generations of our small town, you all can learn to be more accepting to change.

I hope that no one judges your children like some of you all have judged me. I hope that the people that you love and care about are welcomed and accepted for who they are.

If we put as much time into being better people or helping others like you put into judging others, the world would be a much better place.

Imperfections are what gives a diamond its value. Pebbles are perfectly round. I'd much rather be a diamond, one in a million, than a pebble that fits in.


The one whose every move you criticize

The Beautiful Benefits Of Mindfulness

Being mindful is important for self-improvement and growth.


As a college student, life can be stressful. One must juggle a social life, academics, and sometimes a part-time job to boot. It's not an easy task, and with daily interactions with others, drama is sure to ensue.

A good way to go about dealing with stress and conflict is mindfulness. Mindfulness is about focusing on the present, letting go of the past, and not fixating on the future. It's about enjoying the here and now, and appreciating your life — rather than lamenting it.

Focusing intently on the future or past events is not healthy, especially for personal growth. One cannot change the past, no matter how much they want to. Obsessing over past grievances and transgressions will do no one any good and is a fruitless endeavor. Planning for the future rather than enjoying the present takes away from the joys of living.

As a human, it's natural to feel hurt and to hold grudges. We want apologies when people are mean or have wronged us. However, we can't control others' actions — only how we react to and behave. Mindfulness is about being the bigger person, letting go of personal vendettas and not being petty.

It's hard to do this, especially as people often are reluctant to accept their role in the conflict. It's hard to accept not being right, especially when conflict occurs. The best remedy for this is to acknowledge the other side, empathize with the person you're in conflict with, and then accept what has happened.

Mindfulness allows us to stay in the present, become more self-aware, and not overreact to events in life. No one can control what happens in their life or how people behave. It's vain to think so.

Meditation and mindfulness are very similar. They both allow people to slow down, think, and contemplate things. It's effective in reducing stress, accepting misfortunes, and letting go of the little things. Mindfulness is also crucial in learning self-love and forgiveness.

It's common for people to be their own worst enemy. It's hard to forgive ourselves, especially when we make mistakes and let people down. No one wants to feel like a failure or to disappoint people. But beating ourselves up isn't the solution — it only allows one to wallow in self-pity rather than learn and grow from their mistakes. No one is perfect — we all mess up in life. It's how we learn from our mistakes and grow from them that makes the difference.

Forgiving ourselves is hard, but forgiving other is even harder. Learning to empathize and sympathize with someone who has wronged us is a marker of true character, and frees us. Hatred is a terrible emotion that ties down both parties. It's beneficial to let go of hatred and learn to accept.

Learning mindfulness is incredibly helpful, as it allows people to move on from the past, stop fixating on the future, and instead live fully in the present.
