I like to know what i’m talking about before I start talking about it so, before I go on my long rant…. What is self worth? Well with all the knowledge and understanding I have on this particular word, I say it is how much you value yourself. Now the dictionary said self worth is the sense of one’s own value or worth as a person; self esteem; self respect. Pretty much what I said but now that we know what self worth means to the dictionary and myself, lets talk about it for a not so brief minute. Welp, until today I never really thought about how much I think I mean or what my so-called “value” is. I ran into a situation earlier today were I went to a guys spot to just chill and talk. We texted each other before I came over so it wasn’t a surprise to him that I would could come at a particular time. But when I arrived he had his ear glued to his cellular device. It took me by surprise because he knew I was coming and he continues to do this for five minutes and so on. But in the midst of him talking to as his says “A smart guy from Columbia” and me waiting patiently for him to get off the phone, the word self worth just popped into my head. I asked myself is this guy really worth me listening to him talk to this Columbia dude and wait til he gets good and ready to get off the phone. I may be wrong but if someone came to spend time with me, i’m pretty sure there not gonna want me to be on the phone talking to someone else and have them waiting. But I said all that to say that the act was just straight up rude and I didn’t deserve to be treated like that. I realized that obviously I don’t mean shubba-dee to him and that if I stayed I didn’t mean shubba-dee to myself either. So I took the stance and I left because I refuse to waist time on someone who doesn’t respect me. So I decided from now on I will keep my self-worth in mind when it comes to meeting new people and people I already know and how it is they treat me. So I say to myself and the few people who is reading this to know how much you mean to yourself. Somethings you just don’t have to deal with, if you love yourself you won’t let people walk all over you, if you love yourself you won’t keep company with people who continuously judge you and tear you down, if you love yourself you will do better! Set standards for yourself and realize to be nice you don’t have to be a door mate.
Welp, that’s all I have to say for right now lolz but this was for me but it may be for you too, so read it if you like and learn something from it that may help you in this journey we call, Life!
