What It Takes To Believe In Yourself

When I was younger, I did not feel worthy.

I didn’t feel worthy to the extent where I could not even bring myself into a name-brand clothing store because I knew I did not have the money to purchase anything which made me feel invaluable. The thought of walking into one of these stores made me feel extremely distressed and uncomfortable and so when my friends asked me to go to the mall, I would just wait outside the store until they were done shopping.

The thought of me not being able to afford expensive material made me feel inadequate, worthless and that I was less of a human because others could afford what I (and my family) could not.
