Failed relationships suck.
And they oftentimes really hurt.
When relationships fail, it is easy to start believing lies about yourself.
Here are five things your failed relationship does not say about you:
1. You are not worth fighting for. You may not have been fought for, but not being fought for and not being worth fighting for are two different things. You are worth it.
2. You are undesirable. Sure, there are parts of you that may be undesirable—everyone has those parts. But just because a girl left you, or your dad won’t talk to you, you as a person are not undesirable. You have skills, abilities, and something to offer. You are desirable.
3. You are not valuable. You are more valuable than all the world’s treasures. You are worth more than all the riches of heaven. A failed relationship does not even take a dime away from how much you are worth. You are infinitely valuable.
4. You are not loveable. One scary thing about life is that the amount we feel loved is in large part dependent upon how others treat us. If we are not being loved, it is not too far of a jump to feeling like we are not loveable. Know this: no matter how many people leave you, hurt you, stop loving you, or refuse to love you, you are loved. And you are loveable. And that will never change.
5. You have no future. Or, you have a bleak future. The truth is, you do not know what tomorrow will bring. But you are valuable. And you are loved. And when you are valuable and loved, the future is bright. And it is awaiting. Will you dance into it?
