You Are Worthy Of Love…Really!

Nicole MooreYou are worthy of love.

Let me say it again.

You are worthy of love.

What happens inside when you read that statement?

Does your heart open up and do you breathe a sigh of relief?

Or do you immediately say to yourself “yeah right” and shut down?

For years I cringed inside when anyone suggested I was worthy of love.

I really wanted to believe it was true and felt I “should love myself”, but deep inside I felt so unworthy.

I thought that everything about me had to change in order for me to be worthy of love.

When I lost the weight, then I would be worthy. When I wasn’t so self-conscious, when I had the career I wanted, when I was more interesting…the list went on and on.

Underneath it all was a deeply limiting belief:

When I was perfect I would be worthy of love. Until then, I didn’t really deserve it.

Until one day, somebody told me about the sun. And they said: the sun shines equally on everything on the planet. It doesn’t pick and choose where to shine its rays based on how good or bad things are. It just gives its warmth equally.

And this got me thinking.

Maybe love was like the sun.

And maybe it had been shining on me all along, I just couldn’t see it.

My rain clouds of unworthiness had been blocking it from coming in.

So I made a decision. I decided to look with the eyes of love and pay attention to all of the love that was coming in. And each time I felt love I would say to myself, “Nicole, you have this love because you deserve it.”

Pretty soon I started to feel more worthy. Not because anything about me changed, but because I made a decision to let it in.

Have you decided that you are not worthy of love right now because you have to do or be something before you deserve it?

If so, please consider that the only thing you have to do is allow yourself to be loved right now, just as you are. And the only thing you have to be is you.

Need proof?

Think of a newborn baby. Would you ever think this to yourself: “That baby doesn’t deserve love. It’s not perfect.”

I’m guessing no.

You would probably say that even if it cries and spits and screams, that little baby deserves all the love in the world.

Guess what? You’re just a grown up baby. You were worthy of love from the moment you were born and that hasn’t changed.

You are worthy of love simply because you are here.
Love is all around you and when you remove the blocks of unworthiness and decide you deserve it just because, it will show up in miraculous ways.

Will you let it in?

XO,

Nicole

    A couple of months ago, I would have “immediately said to yourself “yeah right” and shut down?” However, reading Kristin Neff’s book Self-compassion has really helped me see that I am worthy and practice it and that difference has changed my world…

          Even after reading this last night as like alot of these blogs are I didn’t ever think of saying or believing these simple yet rewarding positive sayings and slowly as I open my inner self up I am smiling all the more. It feels so uplifting and the future looks brighter as for the last two years I have had turmoil after turmoil with tragedies all around and it takes it toll and turned a once vibrant energetic successful young man into a man who was just living day by day and now he is taking the reins again.

          • TRUTH IS

            Be encouraged. The Divine is with you. It’s is not an easy journey. I know how it gets. Its to make us stronger. I told God I do not need to learn anymore lessons, I’ve seen and experience it all. Am strong. Be bless and keep on keeping on

            thankyou when ppl respond to post’s like mine it makes me smile as all the transformations I’m doing to make my light shine so bright as the sun itself again is so empowering. I’m the happiest I have been in a long time not just on the outside that ppl see but within myself.

    “Have you decided that you are not worthy of love right now because you have to do or be something before you deserve it?” – that quote resonated with me it’s something I struggle with at times. I think many of us are conditioned (living in a society that places so much emphasis on externals like financial success and physical beauty) to believe this. Thanks for the great reminder that we are all worthy of love!

      I’m so glad this resonated with you Joy :)

    • David McInnes

      We are all born with love. it’s whether we are true to ourselves to be shining examples of love so we attract love. You are right in regard to society’s conditioning. We have to rise above it and believe. Love Is….

    Let me share a poem I wrote while in Michigan in 2008

    Love

    … is the one pure light
    that passes through the dark of night
    It is the stillness´ word and song,
    its power so tender, and yet most strong.
    With it travel truth and peace,
    us from our hardship to release …

    Yes, Love
    is the broadening stream nothing can stop:
    not space – not time, not the course of mankind.
    It runs through all creation,
    it dwells in each and every soul,
    it reaches out – it longs for you:
    to flow into its all embracing ocean,
    to surrender every thought and motion
    ah, and let yourself go… to become finally free
    from all your sorrow, longing and need,
    no more to roam, no more to run,
    but to be:
    Forever One.

    Streaming Love to all of you out there from: Shelley Osterried
