Your Value doesn’t decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth.
I saw this statement on two different friends Facebook pages. I really like this quote, it really hits home for me. It isn’t always easy to see and accept this though. I know what it feels like to be in a damaging relationship that makes you question your own worth. Luckily I have gotten out of those relationships and I surround myself with people who care about me and love me for who I am.
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” Elenor Roosevelt. That is another favorite quote of mine.
It makes me think of my character Andrea in my work in progress. She is a strong woman who has escaped an abusive husband. Abuse in any form, physical, mental, emotional makes people feel unworthy. These are things that my character is going to have to overcome to heal and find love again.
This is the beginning of my new book…I hope you enjoy it. And want to read more!!
Sometimes the end is really the beginning.
Andrea slung her purse over her shoulder. She picked up the box from the kitchen table, resting it against her hip and holding it with one hand so she could open the door. She looked back and stopped in the doorway. Her eyes were shining bright green with unshed tears. She turned her back and stepped through the door. A single tear rolled down her cheek.
Andrea opened the passenger side door and set the box on the front seat. The rest of the car was packed in tight with boxes. After five years of marriage, she had packed up all of her belongings that she wanted from that life in one car.
Andrea got behind the wheel and put the windows down. She didn’t glance back in the rearview mirror as she drove out of the driveway and away from Clint Brown.
