I Deserve to be Loved and Cherished

By DSAdmin | DSA Reflections

Being loved and cherished is my birthright

I am invested in my own life. I seek to make a positive impact on others however I can. I look for work that sustains me. I surround myself with caring people. I contribute to the lives of others in helpful and important ways.

Yet, even if I did none of these things, I would still deserve to be loved and cherished. Being loved and cherished, to me, is our birthright. Every human being on the planet is entitled to know the joy, certainty, and celebration of being valued and loved.

Simply because I was born, I have a right to experience feelings of love and to be treasured by another person. Even though I am not perfect and sometimes I fall short in the face of life’s challenges, I deserve to be loved and cherished.

Feeling that I matter sustains me

Feeling that I matter is a sustaining part of life. Even though people are quite different from one another, we are all the same in terms of wanting to be special to another person. I believe that the human condition compels us to seek out and receive feelings of being valued.

Today, I feel sure I deserve to be loved and cherished. I remind myself of the many people along my journey of life who respect, value, and love me.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Do I believe that I am worthy of being loved and treasured by another person?
2. Why do I deserve love?
3. What can I do to increase my sense of self-worth?
