Hi sisters! I got a story to tell you.
In a seminar for battered women. There was this speaker who held the seminar so lively and full of lessons to learn from.
She started the seminar by asking who wants her one hundred peso bill?. Everyone raised their hands. She crumpled the poor bill and asked the same question. Everyone still did the same. Raised their hands. Wishing that one of them would have the money. She then crumpled, threw, stepped on the bill and asked the same question. Who wants this one hundred peso bill? All the attendees raised their hands. Then she began giving her words of wisdom.
Daughters of Christ, Allow me to associate you with that one hundred peso bill. No matter how you were broken, how you were hurt, no matter what you’ve been through. You got the same worth. Maybe, that person whom you loved, treasured and given your everything has crushed you, broke you into pieces. That person destroyed your self-confidence, your very identity as a person. That person who you loved the most abused their rights on you. And,
as a result, you became afraid of the world, You became fearful towards others. You look at yourself as somebody who is smaller and lesser in worth. You choose to bear the pain and choose to be with your abuser, because you think nobody would take the risk to love you and care for you again.
I want to highlight this: No matter what you have gone through, your worth will never change. And, nobody could ever change that worth aside from yourself. Lift yourself up!
One day there will be a right person who will pick you up. This person will be more than willing to take good care of you. Who will let you know that you are worth loving and caring. Let go, move on, Start knowing your worth.
I heard this from a radio station here in Mega Manila. Love Radio is really amazing.
