I’m just as worthy

“I used to reject and punish myself when I was rejected by others. I thought their treatment was “proof” that I was worthless. Even though the way I was treated as a child told me that I’m deserving of abuse, healing has shown me that I’m not defined by how people treat me and that I’m just as worthy of equal value as everyone else. Now, when I experience disappointment from the way people treat me, I take special care of myself with comfort and protection. I express my pain in a healthy way.” ~Christina Enevoldsen
