Your Preciousness

Our parents can do this for us as we grow… 

Later on a romantic partner might do this for us, especially while falling in love… 

Children are capable of doing this for us in the simplest of ways… 

And soul friends will certainly try to do this for us… 

Anyone in life can reflect back to another one’s preciousness. Often we find a person or two, maybe a handful, who do it really well. Yet relationships can struggle or go sour, and every human has a set of personal challenges. Thus for one to always depend upon another to uphold the mirror of significance is a recipe for disappointment. If your belief that you are precious rests on how someone else sees you, eventually you will find yourself in an emotional free fall that calls into question your worthiness. 

Instead of seeking someone else to show us our preciousness, let us aim to see it in ourselves as our Creator does. Let us remember what our souls already know deeply. Make it a priority to stay aligned with the Infinite Intelligence of Love that many call God, of whom we are made in the image and likeness. It’s up to us to stay mindful of this Eternal Source of Preciousness always valuing us, regardless of what others say or do, regardless of what we say or do to ourselves. 

Indeed be grateful to and for those solid people in your life who remind you of your preciousness, and be intentional in reminding others of their own. Such beautiful exchanges of compassion bless us profoundly. But let the surest bond of knowing your preciousness remain between you and the Love which sustains the world — a love that invites you to love yourself. 

May you be inspired!
