“So when you feel like hope is gone, look inside you and be strong. And you’ll finally see the truth, that a hero lies in you.” ~Mariah Carey
As we close out the relationship part of the series, I couldn’t leave all of this talk about self-worth without acknowledging the fact that by now, you may realize that you have to make some changes in your life. Maybe you’ve decided it’s time to break up with someone or block a number to the man who only hits you up when he wants discounted access to your body. I recall a time where I struggled ending a situation that I KNEW wasn’t good for me. I knew I had to do it because I knew I was worthy of more respect than what I was getting. Still, even knowing all of that, I cried my little eyes out when I finally told the guy, “I’m done. This is where I get off this ride.”
Sometimes doing what is best for us is not always easy. BUT, I want to remind you of one thing: your worth is not tied into how a man/woman views and treats you. God has already outlined your worth in his scriptures when he compared a virtuous woman as being worth far more than rubies. Rubies! One of the world’s most precious gems. In fact, some research has shown that large rubies can be sold at even higher prices than diamonds! So, your God obviously finds you to be worthy. However, it is up to you to start walking in your true worth. My prayer for you is that wherever you are in life – whether single, married, undecided, kicking it, cuddling, etc. – that you do not place all of the power of your heart and happiness into that person and instead give it all over to God. And if you find yourself struggling to get out of a situation where you know you are not being treated the way you deserve, then I encourage you to rely on that hero – that’s inside of you to get you through!
