One of my favorite quotes is the words of Stephen Chboski, which I heard in the film based on his novel “It's good to be meek”:
"We accept the love we consider ourselves worthy."
I have always liked this quote, because I believe that it applies not only to love, but to everything in our life. If you replace the word "love" with the word "respect" or "salary" or "life", the principle is the same.
In professional terms, when we agree only on the salary we consider ourselves worthy, we are ready to negotiate, reject the proposal because of the small payment, resign, when we feel that we are financially underestimated.
In our youth we often doubt ourselves, and I, like many others, often underestimated myself. It should not be. We should go to any meeting, knowing our value, not begging for attention or a workplace, we should think about what we can give them.
It’s true that you’ll never get what you’re not asking forthat’s why we have to ask for more money if we don’t have enough wages.We must demand respect if our work is not recognized. That we are young and inexperienced does not make us useless or worthless, and this is something that many people forget.
In love and life is the same.We accept a mediocre relationship because we think that we cannot get anything better, that it is better to be with him / her than alone.We agree to a boring life, a standard job, a monotonous weekend, because we dare not ask for more. It may not be easy to change, but it's worth it.
From our youth we should consider ourselves worthy of a unique love, insane love, deep love, that life is incredible and interesting, a bit confusing, but saturated. If you wake up in the morning and decide that you deserve mediocrity, then you just get it, then this is what you want.
Believe in the power of your thoughts, because people perceive you the way you perceive yourself, and behave accordingly.
