“Because you deserve it” were four words that changed my life. It is funny how someone can say something so simple to you, but those words hold enough power to become a pivotal moment, which you will never forget. The words continue to repeat in your mind and your life is never the same.
We all have moments like that. When someone said something, either negative or positive, and you remember it forever. You have an “Aha moment”. There is a shift in your way of thinking and a shift in your life.
So, how did “Because you deserve it” make an incredible impact on me? I spent my life having low self-esteem and low self-worth, as a result of the constant blows I have endured. The more I got knocked down, or put down, the deeper into the downward spiral I went. I was constantly trying to please others and prove that I was worthy of love. I would do anything for anyone else, yet had trouble receiving anything in return and even ask for help. Does this sound familiar to you? You are not alone! It is common with heart-centered people.
Just when it seemed as though life was showing me no mercy, an amazing person entered my life. This man spotted me through a huge crowd at a concert and handed me After Party tickets for the well-known band. We became friends, then soon after we starting dating. He wanted to do anything to make me happy. He was over-the-top nice to me and expected nothing in return. He was wanting to do everything to fulfill my dreams and more. I was not used to this. I was used to doing this for others, but never in my life, did I meet someone willing to do the same. I had trouble accepting people paying for a coffee…mine or theirs. Now, I was expected to allow someone to spoil me with extravagances? That was quite the leap!
He was persistent and refused to take no for an answer. Each time, I would ask “Why are you doing this”? The reply was always the same. “Because you deserve it”. Inside, I would feel as though I didn’t deserve it, but one time, it dawned on me…
I do deserve it!!! My entire life, I have been giving selflessly to others without ever accepting or receiving back. I felt really good when I helped and gave to others, yet I was denying others from having the same great feeling. This is when my life shifted.

I would never take advantage of anyone. I could no longer date this person, as it was too much for me to handle at the time. But I was grateful for all he has done to open my eyes and shift my perspective. It also prepared me to allow my true love to enter into my life several years later, without having me push him away. Although, I am still working on it, I have since allowed much more love and help into my life. I hope you will allow more goodness into your life. Because you deserve it!
