I Matter

The occluding substance is the outside world filter we apply to who we should be. And when we judge ourselves by those standards, we come up with “I don’t matter.”

You can’t be defined by outside circumstances because the inside you – the part that matters – is never touched by them.

Outside evaluations can set some benchmarks to shoot for when we want to improve our station in life, but they can never measure our capacity to matter.

The old axiom comes to mind: “It’s not the dog in the fight; it’s the fight in the dog.”

I’m not suggesting that you have to fight for what matters. You don’t. It’s there for you without lifting a glove.

Just knowing that you matter will deliver personal respect without having to demand it.

Any time you feel as though you don’t matter, wipe out your eyes and see through to the real you – the part of you that matters.

All the best,

John
