You are your gift to the world
I’m feeling low today. After responding to some posts on IG, I realise a repetitive sense of worthlessness.
I’m plagued by my low (or no) self esteem, where I don’t think I bring anything to the table, I don’t create value and there is no point in existing (no suicidal thoughts) – just feeling flat and out.
Maybe because I’m starved of the 5 A’s (Acceptance, Appreciation, Approval, Affection, Attention) and I don’t know how to feed it to myself if no one is around to do that.
Inspired by @fakingitwithadhd’s post, I’ve created my own reminder for today.
If you’re struggling today, this is for you. This is for us.
I do want to learn of my worth (maybe I should just accept it first and understand it later) gradually and fathom how I am “precious and free”, according to CoDA literature.
