Because you're awesome.

Anytime anyone challenges your self-worth, think in your head, the answer to their every question is, "Because I'm awesome."

Do you ever hear questions like,

"What makes you think you deserve..."
or "Why would I go out of my way for you to..."
or "What on earth makes you think you should get..."

... These types of questions and statements can really pack a wallop on our self-worth IF we LET them.

If you're feeling that shrinking, pressure feeling when someone says something like this right at your solar plexus, under the middle of your ribcage and above your stomach...take a DEEP breath, sit or stand up straight, and think in your mind what you know is the truth. You ARE awesome and you do deserve good things.

Don't crumble or immediately apologize for even asking to be treated well. Bullies come in all shapes and sizes, and if you allow it once, you allow it 1000 times.

Calmly but with confidence, answer why you deserve, think, and should have or be treated the way you know inside you should be.

Then it's up to them...to either treat you that way or to go pick on someone else. That, you can't control. You can only control what you will put up with, when, and from whom.
