I will soon learn to accept myself despite all the wrong things that I did in the past and despite all the wrong things in my life. I make mistakes, but I am not a mistake. I am okay, even if some people do not like me. Even if I am just being ignored most of the time. I wrote these reflections in my journal two years ago. Now at age 19, I still feel the same way about some circumstances. Indeed sometimes there are situations, people and events in life that can sway you into thinking that you are not worthy enough.
In my experience, one of the things that had hindered me from seeing my worth as a person was my fear of failing. I had based my dignity on my grades, achievements and on what other people had to say about me. I used to believe that I had to earn my dignity, that I had to work hard to earn my dignity, and that for people to recognize me as a worthwhile human-being, I had to meet certain standards. Whenever I thought that I had failed to meet these standards, I also thought that I was less of a person. Looking back, I now realize that my fear of failing was not the main reason for why I could not see my worth as a person.
The reason I could not see my worth were actually physical and spiritual poverty, issues within my family, and struggles within myself that kept me from claiming my dignity. These factors led me to believe that dignity was something I needed to work hard to earn. The problems I was suffering through made me think that dignity and respect were afforded only to wealthy, beautiful, smart You looking for some dignaty prominent people. I tried to prove to myself and to the people around me that I was someone worthy of respect.
There is just one problem with this strategy. It does not work at all. The way through which we can truly see our worth as a person is by acknowledging that our dignity is innate and inviolable. No one and nothing can take our worth away from us. What most attracted me to WYA was its bold aim to promote and defend the dignity of the person. This mission is very close to my heart, not only because I had experienced the void of misunderstanding my own worth as a person for years, but also because I am surrounded with people who do not realize their own worth. I would like them to know about their dignity, too.
As an intern, I am currently training to become a Dignity Defender, but at the same time, You looking for some dignaty think I am also one of the millions of young people whom WYA diligently and devotedly stands up for. In fact, WYA stands up for every person.
But before I can truly become this gift, I have to remind myself every day of my worth and of what I can do for others.
I also have to first resolve the issues within my family, myself, and who I want to become in the future. You will soon feel better. You will soon learn to love yourself and the others around you more. Over the past few years, I have encountered a lot of regrets in my life. At times these regrets kept. I don't care if they care I need to be independent Prudent people do come And go away!
