“When they discover the center of the universe, a lot of people will be disappointed to discover they are not it.” Bernard Bailey

In almost all of the books about self worth and self appreciation it is highlighted that you should know the value of oneself.  You should see yourself as someone of great value, importance and existence to boost your morale and self esteem.  But just like everything else in life, anything that is done in excess is never good.

When you talk about self worth or value what comes in mind is that you are special.  Of course, we all are.  But that doesn’t mean that other people are just your minions.  The main purpose of building self esteem is for you to be productive in the sense that you’ll have a normal and healthy life & relationship.  Don’t get too excited there, when I said relationship it is not just the lovey-dovey thing.  It also means relationship with co-workers, acquaintances, friends & family.  And yes again, you are read it right, there are other people too who you co-exist in this planet.  So for some who mastered the art of appreciating himself/herself alone would definitely be disappointed to know that the Universe doesn’t revolve around them.  That everything will be just fine if they’re not in the picture.  You are important but so are others. It wouldn’t make you less of a person if you acknowledge that and really see that it is what it is.

Besides, don’t you think its wonderful to share moments with someone with, again I’m not just talking about love here.  Others’ story, feelings and thoughts are important too.   We should all learn to give credit when credit is due.

    1. Thank you 🙂 I strongly feel about this particular quote for sometimes we do tend to over do things, I am no exception haha! You can find others blog about this quote by clicking on the Ping back link I have. This is a weekly event, you should try it too 🙂


  1. It is important to have a healthy sense of self without being self-centered. We all know a drama queen or two who think they are the center of everything. We also know there will come a time when they find out differently. Thanks for joining In Other Words. Your post addresses the quote very nicely.

    1. You’re most welcome. And thank you too for coming up with this brilliant idea. I too sometimes fall prey to this thinking…I’m just fortunate that I have my mom to remind me when I do ❤


      1. Aww..I’m sorry to hear that, but that is true, even my mom tells me that what her mother taught her stayed with her even though she’s gone….. ❤


    1. Thank you ❤ and I'm truly happy that you too have shared your quotes for there can never be too many quote blogs, right? The more the merrier ❤
