What You’re Worth

Brittany is holding a note that reads "Don't let the scale dictate your self-worth"
✨Our bodies are a constellation made up of unique attributes, emotions, and energy. The sum of ourselves encompasses our identity and personality. But what if you aren’t happy with who you are? What if you hate how you identify with yourself? What if the mirror reflects the image of an individual that you’re accustomed to despise?
When we hold a negative self-image or feeling about ourselves, it can be tempting to look outwardly for solutions to change. Instant gratification is addicting, and tangible progress is intoxicating. Enter — the scale. It provides a false sense of control each time we step upon it to await our fate. And it’s only a matter of seconds before instant feedback is displayed. There is nothing wrong with the scale, but there is a lot that can go wrong with how we choose to interpret the information.
The scale is significantly limited and cryptic in the data it provides. In the words of Steve Maraboli “… the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned.”
I was a slave to the scale, and I sacrificed my self-worth for the sake of being small. A complex world becomes much simpler if weight loss equates with good and weight gain is bad. But this would mean living a lie and believing deceit. Our worth is not something that can be weighed. It is part of the constellation that makes up our physical being.
And our physical being can be attributed to The Law of Conservation of Mass, which states: “The same amount of matter exists before and after the change —none is created or destroyed.” This means that although a substance’s physical properties may change, its atomic value does not. It’s true! We can change how we physically look. However, the change in appearance will never be able to alter your worth. ~Britt💜
