Do You Feel Valued … Respected as a Person, a Unique Individual?

First, we have to overcome worrying about what others think of us.

Second, we have to stop doing what they want to gain people’s fickle approval.

And third, we can do these things by valuing … respecting ourselves because when we do then we are also empowered to value … respect others without qualifiers … and by doing so we work our way back into love.

“Nobody can be as good helping someone as someone who’s been through it.” Joyce Meyer

As part of an “Invisible Minority” … people whose personality types and other differences are very uncommon to the rest of people, I know what it is like to be misunderstood, misjudged, abandoned, bullied, ignored, maltreated, exploited, abused, and harmed almost to the point of not wanting to live, so I KNOW what many people do not and can help bridge the gap dividing us.

Shooters Steal Lives. Yet Shooters Lives Are Stolen As This World Breaks Them to the Point …

Shooters steal lives.

Yet shooters lives are stolen as this world breaks them to the point they can no longer bear to feel the pain or become so deadened inside they do not feel anything, but relief when they are shot in return.

This is just one of the many compelling reasons I cannot give up on my purpose, the calling on my life, regardless of how my purpose and life is judged.

The longer we continue operating on the philosophy that only some lives are valuable and the rest disposable, this madness of mass shootings with assault rifles in the US will not end, no matter how many laws and safeguards are put in place.

Raising My “Respect Level” Empowered Me to Examine What Shaped My Life and to Change What Was Not Working for Me But Against Me

Examining the beliefs of others I had accepted, even without awareness, freed me to choose the beliefs that are for me rather than against me.

Unhealthy Ways Children Are Taught to Process Emotions

AHA! Female relationships/friendships, even now, continue to confuse and hurt me more than any boy or man ever has even with with the males’ arsenal tools of ignoring, disregarding, disrespecting, controlling, abusing, or assaulting in comparison with females’ more subtle, subversive tools of gossip, meanness, and ostracizing, because girls/women are taught to not express their disapproval, pain, and anger because of the damaging lesson girls are taught they are to “be nice” … yet anger is anger and will rise to the surface in both sexes when it cannot be held in check anymore. Research shows males take on their anger mostly on strangers whereas females anger bubbles below the surface until released in their social circles.

“Late Bloomer Revolution”

“We need a “Late Bloomer Revolution” as our brains are not fully developed into our thirties.”

Which, by the way, was when I re-discovered what I really wanted to do, write, when I started university in my mid-thirties while employed by Levi Strauss & Co. Canada Inc. However, without overnight success people convinced me writing was a waste of time and I stopped, living minimally to survive, in jobs better suited to an Introvert’s personality’s needs, especially a very wounded one. What I know now? Don’t ever let people decide who you are and what is right for you … because you could not only lose the life you were meant to thrive with, you may actually lose your life in the ways chosen to cope with feeling undervalued, unappreciated, and overall disrespected.
