The title of Sherry Argov’s book isn’t referring to a woman who is constantly in someone’s face. It’s about women who have enough value and respect for themselves to not fall into the trap of being their partner’s doormat. I would highly recommend that all women read this book if they haven’t ready. It definitely helps you realise why all of your relationships seem to be relationshits. Men will only walk all over women who don’t act strong. If you are weak in any way, then you can expect to be treated like a doormat.
I choose Being worthy of loving myself. I choose to allow, accept and receive love into my life now. I choose to love myself. I choose to love my body from the top of my head to the tips of my toes as it is and as it changes. I choose to care for my body, my mind and my spirit with love. I choose to do loving things for myself. I choose loving thoughts about myself. I choose loving self-talk.
I feel worthy of love. I feel love for myself. I feel love for my body for all my cells, my organs, tissues, bones, muscles and tendons. I feel love coming to me from my Eternal Source of Well-Being. I allow, accept and receive that love now. I feel good being loved and loving myself now.
I AM worthy of loving myself. I AM allowing, accepting and receiving love now. I AM loving myself. I AM loving my body. I AM loving all there is in me to love. I AM thinking about myself with loving thoughts. I AM talking to myself with loving words. I AM caring for myself with loving actions. I AM grateful for the love I have for myself now. I AM loved.
I choose to accept my worth now. I choose to accept my value living on the planet at this point in time. I choose to accept the excellence in my creation. I choose to accept the virtue in being who I AM. I choose to accept the merit in each moment I AM alive.
I feel worthy now. I feel value in my Be-ing. I feel the excellence of my creation. I feel virtue in who I AM. I feel merit in each moment of my life.
I AM worthy. I AM a valued and valuable human and spiritual being. I AM created in excellence and I create excellence. I AM part of the virtue in all of creation. I AM part of the merit in all creation. I AM grateful for the feeling of worthiness. I AM loved.
Why do so many women have such a general sense of low self-esteem? Well, the reason for that goes back quite a distance, apart from the influences imposed on us in today’s society. Today we have the television and the media telling us how we should be, but those devices are simply perpetuating a very old saga. I went searching for answers quite some time ago and this is what I found. Continue reading →
I think the biggest part of being human and making peace with our shadow and ego comes out of our need to feel that we are loved. Loved by others, and by ourselves. The search for love leads us down many winding paths. We are plopped down here with no clear destination and with no real idea of how we are supposed to get there even if we had somewhere we knew we wanted to go. The only real instinct we are given is that we seek out love. We don’t know how to do that or what that really entails at first, so we inevitably head down many wrong paths and make many mistakes before we even begin to figure out how to get a clue! If we are lucky we are surrounded by a loving family and group of people who help us make a little headway in the act of how to search…unfortunately for almost all of us, that is not the case! We get love from our family if we are fortunate enough to be born into a loving one, but more often than not, they mean well but they themselves usually came out of the same confusion we were born into. So we are forced to look outside of them to others, and even if our family is very loving, out of curiosity we look to others to see what they are doing and would recommend anyway…and we of course run into trouble…big trouble! It’s just the state of the world we live in to be born into this chaos and confusion and try to make sense of it all. Hell, that’s why we are here! We usually start off doing okay for ourselves for the most part, up until we hit puberty and then BAM! the world flips over on top of us and we have to wiggle our way out from underneath it.

“You’re going to meet many people with domineering personalities: the loud, the obnoxious, those that noisily stake their claims in your territory and everywhere else they set foot on. This is the blueprint of a predator. Predators prey on gentleness, peace, calmness, sweetness and any positivity that they sniff out as weakness. Anything that is happy and at peace they mistake for weakness. It’s not your job to change these people, but it’s your job to show them that your peace and gentleness do not equate to weakness. I have always appeared to be fragile and delicate but the thing is, I am not fragile and I am not delicate. I am very gentle but I can show you that the gentle also possess a poison. I compare myself to silk. People mistake silk to be weak but a silk handkerchief can protect the wearer from a gunshot. There are many people who will want to befriend you if you fit the description of what they think is weak; predators want to have friends that they can dominate over because that makes them feel strong and important. The truth is that predators have no strength and no courage. It is you who are strong, and it is you who has courage. I have lost many a friend over the fact that when they attempt to rip me, they can’t. They accuse me of being deceiving; I am not deceiving, I am just made of silk. It is they who are stupid and wrongly take gentleness and fairness for weakness. There are many more predators in this world, so I want you to be made of silk. You are silk.” ― C. JoyBell C. —
