Please Know Your Worth!

A father before he died said to his son: “This is a watch your grandfather gave me, and it’s more than 200 years old. But before I give it to you, go to the watch shop on the first street, and tell him I want to sell it, and see how much he offers you.“

He went, and then came back to his father, and said, “The watchmaker offered $5 because it’s old.

“Go to the coffee shop.” He went and then came back, and said: “He offered $5 father.”

“Go to the museum and show them that watch.”

He went then came back, and said to his father “They offered me $1 million for this piece.“

The father said: “I wanted to let you know that the right place values you in the right way. Don’t find yourself in the wrong place and get angry if you’re not valued. Those that know your value are those who appreciate you, don’t stay in a place where nobody sees your value.”

My beautiful Tewahedo Orthodox sister, please know your worth! Never allow anyone to treat you like you are one of many options. If you don’t respect yourself, no one will respect you. Respect yourself enough to know you deserve nothing but the best!

“Don’t give part-time people full-time position in your life. Know your value and what you have to offer, and never settle for anything less than what you deserve.”
