Underestimate?

 

Why would you want to do that?

I underestimated myself all the time until I took a good look at the word and then a good look at myself. Using the thesaurus, I found the first word listed was “under value”

I didn’t know myself at all. Here I was plugging along and just going through the motions of life. I never stopped to think that I had any value at all. Until I got off  “my little pity pot” and took an honest look at myself.

  1. Yes, I had faults, so does every one.
  2. I just had no energy and I didn’t care if I made a difference in anybody else’s life.
  3. I’ve never felt I was worth anything at all. OK I told myself.. 

It’s time to get off the pity pot and get some positive juices going. The reasons above are now things of the past. First of all, I am a person who is a giving person, I love people and it makes me happy to give to others. I know that I make them happy because they always tell me how glad they are when I stopped in and visit them, or bring them something to eat when they’re sick.

Then there are all those years that I contributed to society by working, paying taxes Then there is the fact that I have talent in some things. I love photography, and I have a knack for writing. It doesn’t matter, stories, diaries, resumes, etc. I found that when I looked at life through the eyes of an objective person, I have a lot of worth.

So, let’s get off of our “little pity pots” and take a good look at ourselves. I will never underestimate myself again and I bet you won’t either.

    1. Amy, I am sorry that it took 2 days or 3 to answer you. I just found this in the spam. I’m glad that they hold it in there because I check now and then to see if anything is in there. I’m glad I checked it tonight. I can write more articles on self improvement and refer to this one. That is a good idea. I have made many changes in my life that have worked out for the better. I’m not an expert, I only know what worked for me, but I can check and link to other articles too. Thank you for your comment. It is thoughtful of you to have written it.
