Posts Tagged ‘worthless’

At some point in our lives I’m sure we’ve all felt as if we’re worthless and no use to anyone, but have come to realise that this couldn’t be further from the truth.

If you are felling worthless just now, please consider this:

To the world you may just be one person but to one person you may just be the world

I personally have found this to be true, even during my darkest moments. Sometimes just befriending someone, or giving them a hug can be all someone needs to let them know someone is thinking of them. Therefore, just keep being you, and I’m sure you will “be the world to someone” even although you may never know how much your actions or words meant to them.

We can all make a difference in other people’s lives, even through simple actions, so don’t ever think you are worthless. You are not worthless to God, so you certainly aren’t worthless to those around you.

Worthless

Is this true? Do you start each day by thanking God for everything you have?

I simply pray today that we may each remember to always thank God for everything we have, as without Him, we would have nothing of worth.

We’ve been thinking about influences the last few days (Looking or Not and Your Influence), but today I want to focus your thoughts on those who have influenced you.

Who have been or are your biggest influences?

For each person you’ve identified as an influence in your life, consider the following:

  • Do they know how much they have influenced you? (don’t assume anything!)
  • Are they a positive or negative influence?

Positive Influencers

Positive influencers can be many things. Here’s a few examples:

  • make you feel happy
  • help you grow spiritually
  • mentor you in a work capacity

If they’ve been a good influence on you:

  • Have you told them that?
  • Have you thanked them?

Go on, tell them the next time you’re speaking to them, it may well make their day!

Negative Influencers

Negative influencers can be many things. Here’s a few examples:

  • make you feel worthless/useless
  • encourage you to do/say things that you don’t agree with
  • continually mood or talk negatively

How long have you know they are a negative influence you? Or have I just focused your thoughts so you could identify them for the first time?

Take control of your live! Don’t let negative influences continue to influence you. I don’t mean you have to stop talking to the people you feel are negative influences on you – I just think it’s more about you taking control of your life, and deciding for yourself what and who influences you. I have people in my life who are bad influences on me, so I know I need to take my own advice and not let these people influence me in this way any longer.

C’mon, together we can overcome our negative influencers and be more positive people!
