I wrote this one day after listening to someone close to me feeling rattled by an unfortunate emotional blow. Still holds true.
You were born for dignity. You were born to be strong, proud, and full of potential. There is so much going on in our lives that we often lose sight of ourselves. Sometimes in the rush and confusion of the moment we forget who we are and we might say or do something that is outside of our authentic selves. Afterwards we feel like we’ve lost our dignity. Somewhere in the scraps of mistakes made lay the shreds of our dignity.
Don’t lose hope.
Dignity can always be recovered. It’s a hell of a fight, but you can regain what’s been lost. I should know, I have had my share of foot in mouth and poor choices. Push past any shame and regret and put roots down deep and reconnect with your strength. Standing taller and gaining confidence each day, there will moments that will test your meddle but you will preserver and keep moving forward until you wake up one day and find that your dignity is once again in your hands.
It is a wonderful feeling to be in command of yourself.
And all you have to do is believe.
