A few days ago I came across this story…
When I read it the first time it make me feel a little bit better.
When I read it again, I felt better again.
You Are Still Valuable.
If I took a $100 bill out of my pocket and offered it to you, obviously you would take it. But what if I crumbled it up and threw it on the ground? Would you still want it?
Now what if I told you that $100 bill had been used in drug deals and prostitution and belonged to the worst people on the planet? Would you still want it? Of course!
Because the value isn’t affected by its past. The value isn’t determined by who it has been around or what’s been done to it. The value can’t be depreciated by anyone else.
You have to realize that no matter what others have done to you or what labels they put on you, they can’t determine your value.
Your past doesn’t determine your future and, even though you know your mistakes and you know where you’ve been let down, you are still valuable and nothing can change that.
