I keep getting an email in my inbox that has been circulating the web for a very long time. It describes women and how they are supportive, caring and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I get it. We are. We are or can be all of that, all of those things at one time or another in our lives. At the end it says the one weakness women have is they don't often realize how much they are worth. I get that part too. We often put others before ourselves. Take care of everything else before taking care of our own needs. It happens a lot, not just in my own life, but in the lives of many others as well.
Sometimes we will listen to others who say negative things and put us down. They are not only trying to wipe out our self esteem, but destroy our sense of self worth in the process too. This is also not just a one way street. Men and women of all ages do it to each other every day. It's a pretty fair playing field in that respect. Disgusting, but fair.
It's kind of strange though, how the lack of worth a person has may also be their one saving grace. I know a person in this very position. They are clueless to the number of people who view them with complete and utter disgust for something they have done and as a result, they have a huge target on their back. There is no bounty on their head, because to the 'hunters', this prey has no worth. This person remains on this earth, on the word of the one person whom they despise, blame for their situation and who they think is their sworn enemy until such time, as one of them shall pass... they are still allowed to look at the ground from the top, simply because, they have no worth.
