what am i worth ?

There are situations in life that make you test your self worth ;

what am i worth if my daughter or son chooses not to call me? 

What am i worth if my friends disconnect from me and choose not to have contact?

What am i worth if people yell at me or tell me off?

What am i worth if the person in charge of the  job i  had wanted rejected me for the position ?

The answer to all those questions is that you are asking the wrong questions, because your self worth is not in any of those people’s hands; not your so called  friends , not your children, not anyone but you and the very unique connection you have to the universe. 

A  spiritual story can illustrate this ; 

A man goes to the market and tries to sell a stone , one vendor is willing to give him 50 cents, another looks at it and says 100 dollars and yet another offers him more, because a diamond is a stone whose value is based on the market price , but it is a stone nonetheless, even those diamonds that are kept in a secure place, they are all just stones that someone values. 

Why should one person’s opinion of the value of a person or object be considered more important than another? That too has to do with a decision society has made, that one person’s opinion  has more value than another but sometimes a person without formal education can display more wisdom than another.

If you seek to know your value  as a person  , my advice would be not to ask anyone, not a friend, not a family member but as the Yogi masters say compete with yourself and decide that your value is not depended on the swaying opinions of society but something deep within you.
