Your unhappiness came with a price that maybe you aren’t fully aware of.
When did you give away your Self-Worth?
Have you, as an adult, ever placed your entire self-worth in the hands of someone else?
Meaning…that you could only feel good about yourself when you felt loved, accepted and good enough for this other person… who is typically your spouse.
If so, you gave away your power.
Specifically, your power to control your own happiness.
As a result, your Self-Worth has been greatly depleted because your happiness became contingent on someone else’s opinions, behaviors and actions.
That’s why you feel sad, angry or empty.
You are waiting for someone else to fill you up with value and love.
I see it frequently.
According to the Center for Global Research, there were over 250 million prescriptions written in the US for anti-depressants last year. And 1 in 4 women in their 40’s and 50’s are taking an anti-depressant.
Your happiness can return when you take 100% responsibility for your own value.
