Your value doesn't decrease based on someone's inability to see your worth.

/ \  A well-known speaker started off his seminar holding up a $20.00 bill. 

In the room of 200, he asked, 
"Who would like this $20 bill?" Hands started going up. He said, 
"I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this."

He proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill. He then asked, 

"Who still wants it...?" 
Still the hands were up in the air. 
"Well," he replied, "What if I do this?" 
And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. 
"Now, who still wants it?" 
Still the hands went into the air.

"So my friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. 

No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. 
It was still worth $20. 

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. 

We may feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. 
Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who DO LOVE you. 

The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by WHO WE ARE. You are special-Don't ever forget it."

There is an infinite supply of people who want to tell you how you should live YOUR life. Most have good intentions and are trying to give you good advice, but the vast majority of this advice has a major flaw that is usually overlooked - it is YOUR life, and your life doesn't fit into some cookie cutter mould.

You must learn to listen to the voice of your spirit and let it guide your way. 

If you listen to the voice within, 
"Your body and mind will become clear and you will realize the unity of all things."

You were put on this earth to be YOU, not some carbon copy of what your family, your church, your friends, or some self-help guru says you should be. 

Develop the self-confidence to listen to the voice within and live your life your way.
