I believe that for most (if not all) people there is a desire to know that they mean something. Everybody wants to be important to both people they are close to and even others who they aren’t as close to. People want to know that their existence has significance. And I don’t think that there’s anything wrong with wanting that. Every single person that has lived, is living or will live is an integral part to life as a whole. We all have a party to play in the story of the universe, no matter how big or small. And people need to know and believe in their importance in order to live healthier lives. When we are made aware of and start believing in our personal importance we see our lives through a new lens. When you know that you mean something you care more about both your physical and mental health. Knowing that you’re vital means that you won’t accept being treated any old kind of way. Some may see this as a form of cockiness, but in reality it all boils down to self love. And who doesn’t want to have love for themselves?
My writing got a little bit away from me here. I wasn’t really planning on talking about individuals importance, but I guess the universe had other plans. I hope that whoever comes across this know that they have value and worth. Sometimes self love is the best thing that you can do for yourself. I know I need to work on practicing it myself. I’ll keep you in the loop on how that goes.
