The question of “who are the people behind the background among us?” is more relevant now than ever. With the media continuously harping on the negative effects of drugs, violence and crime, people are growing increasingly concerned about their environment. There is more than just media coverage that should concern us. Our environment is filled with agents of destruction whose only agenda is to tear us down and feed on our fears. The need to understand ourselves and the forces which shape our destiny in life is more significant today than ever.
People are quick to point fingers when faced with any problem. We can blame poor parenting, poverty or other socio-economic factors, but these won't help in finding the root cause of why we are living in a broken society, or one that is being run by monsters. We must search deep within ourselves to find the true meaning of life. It is there in each person and not in the society around us.
The concept of self-worth can be subjective depending on our level of personal achievement. In our mind's eye, we can imagine ourselves as an architect designing a perfect home for our loved ones. But is this really possible? This kind of perfection is only possible if we consider ourselves to be worthy of it, and that there is no way we could achieve that goal.
The truth is that we are all alone and we are responsible for our own actions. None of us can create our lives with the permission of another nor should we expect another to do so for us. When we feel bad, it is not because someone else did something wrong, but because we feel bad for feeling like that.
The truth is that there is a good person in every corner of the world. People who love one another and treat each other with kindness and dignity will always succeed. People who have the courage to see past differences and fight against hatred and violence are usually on the right side of the battle. As Oprah says, “You have to be the change you want to see in the world.”
The fact is that we are all part of God's plan and His plan is always perfect. We are all part of the creation process and we have an amazing opportunity to reach our fullest potential. But sometimes, circumstances get in the way and we have to work harder than normal to achieve what should have been an easy victory. And sometimes, it takes a little more courage than usual to get past these obstacles and go on to excel.
The good news is that the self-worth that we have determines the level of self-awareness we can achieve. If we think we are worthless, it is very difficult to discover our gifts and talents. When we look behind us and see the people and things that made us special, it helps us to recognize that we aren't worthless. And this realization gives us the confidence we need to become the person that we were meant to be.
So, don't sit at home and think about your past. Look in the mirror. Put a little reflective mood on and realize that you are a valuable person. When you stop pointing at the past and start looking at the present and future, you will find that you have a better understanding of yourself and your background among us.
Next, look for the character trait or attitude that makes you who you are. Ask yourself if there are any bad habits or personality traits that you need to work on. Once you have identified these things, write them down on a sheet of paper. Then, after you read through them, go back over your list and try to find things in yourself that are still quite faulty. Write these things down as well.
When you are finished, take a look at your list of self-worth issues and decide what you can do about them. Usually, people begin to learn new things by looking at their background among us. If you don't know anything about a particular thing, but you know other people who are experts on it, consider asking them for advice. After all, they probably experienced the same thing or have experienced the same circumstances. This way, you can gain a new insight into how you are flawed and what you need to change about yourself in order to become the best person you can be.
Finally, keep in mind that each of us is unique. We have our strengths and weaknesses. We each have a unique voice and a unique story that we want to tell. By keeping an open and receptive mind, you will discover who you really are inside and out. Then you will be able to work with these strengths and weaknesses in order to improve yourself and the lives of those around you. That is truly what life's purpose is all about.
