You Deserve Better

You Deserve Better
By Sara Gamachew
I began to realize recently that I kept wondering if I deserved anything. When someone is kind to me, I tend to take that small thing for granted. I did not feel appreciated towards the end of my marriage. I felt that I needed to earn anything from kindness to a mere compliment. If did not do something good enough so I would be verbally/nonverbally putdown, ignored, and generally felt guilty for not doing well enough. Readers, do you know how this feels? Have you ever felt worthless or like a piece of dirt? That is exactly how I felt. I would go to bed wondering if I was worth anything to anyone. Was this what love truly meant? There were nights I would cry myself to sleep because my heart was so sad. Did I really deserve better or was this it for me?
I was taught that if you treat others kindly and with respect people would treat you with respect and kindness in return. Well according to my mother I was as close as an angel (of course I had my days *wink*). When I returned home after fighting to regain my independence my body, soul, and emotions were worn out. My mother could hardly recognize me… that was how changed I was. She was just glad to have me back. Trust me she was not ready to let me go again for a long time. She and I have struggled tooth and nail to regain my self-confidence, self-esteem, and myself completely back from the struggled life that I lived. She has kept reminding me to have faith, hope, and that I deserved better. Living in Africa was just a training ground to get me back on my feet. It may not be one of those glamorous vacations that celebrity’s take when they need a break… but for me it was literally, what the doctor ordered.
So now, you know why I took this trip. I needed to find myself and break from the chains from my past. I hope that my story can inspire someone out there to get the help that they need. You can break the cycle of your life. I just take courage, love, and just one-step at a time. I am just so lucky that I have friends and family that consistently let me know that I am wanted and loved.

The simplicity of life is just being yourself.”

Everyone feels glum, distressed, or perturbed as a result of life's experiences; but if these feelings last for a long time, they disrupt your life. Learning to notice and identify these feelings and mastering the habits of a healthy lifestyle takes practice. I will be sharing my personal stories and stories of individuals (on emotional issues) whose names won't be mentioned. Most of these stories will be written in the first person narrative. Promising you a noteworthy read! Cheers!
