Day 2: Worthy?

 

slice-of-life

I am writing for the Two Writing Teachers March Challenge

There are parts of me I don’t share.  For those of you who know me, this may come as a surprise.  I keep some things private or save them just for my husband or my best friend.  I feel vulnerable opening up to you all here.  I’m not sure how deep I will go.  Or if in the end, I will only write about things that are inconsequential.  My hope is that as I continue to write daily, I will become more comfortable with baring my soul to this little online community.  I also hope that I do not embarrass myself (or my husband) in the process.

The thought of laying it out there for all to see makes me nervous.  What if they don’t like me?  What if they don’t like what I have to say?  What if I overshare?  What if I undershare?  What if I have nothing to say?  These are the thoughts that most women…(people?) have daily.  It is hard to not care what people think of you.  Everyone wants to be liked and thought of in a positive light.  I’ve spent a long time coming to terms with the fact that my self worth is not determined by others, but by how I treat others.  Particularly how I treat those that treat me less.

Therefore, I will *try* to be positive in my daily actions and to always put my best self forward.  If you don’t like what I have to say, I don’t really care…maybe.  Maybe not.  I will try not to care but I will still hop over to see what you have to say because that is the measure of my worth.

  1. Great questions. All of us ask them along the way. I write what I’m comfortable with. You can always use third person and poetry to go deeper without feeling as personally vulnerable. It’s all about slices of life through your eyes.

  2. Self worth is a tough pill, yo. It’s hard to put it into words but I love the way you laid it out here. It’s feels very open. Like we’re seeing how you thought process the concept. It’s genuine.

    Semi-related? I always think of Wayne’s World when I think of what I’m worthy of. It definitely illustrates how I don’t take a lot of things too seriously all the time. That’s me though and I’m a huge weirdo. 😉
