If someone was to see that they don’t feel worthy of life, it could be said that this will be an achievement. Now, coming to this conclusion won’t mean that their life will simply change but what it will mean is that they will be aware of what is going on and they will be able to do something about it.

Before this point in time, how they experienced life will just have been what is normal. As a result of this, they will have suffered in a variety of different ways but they will have been totally immersed in what was going on and thus, they wouldn’t have been consciously aware of it.


When they look at how they live, they could see that they typically just survive. So, a number of their basic needs will be met but that will be about as far as it will go in most cases.

They are then going to have somewhere to live, food to eat and clothes to wear, yet, their ‘higher’ needs will largely be overlooked. If they have a job, this could allow them to earn enough to pay the bills but that could be about it.

A Struggle

Over the years, they may have done a lot to try to elevate themselves out of the level they are at. But, although they will have put in a lot of effort, they won’t have been able to get very far.

For example, they may have tried to move forward at work, or in their career if they have one, and to have a fulfilling intimate relationship. By doing this, they may have even been able to take a few steps forward, only to end up back where they started before long.

Another Part

Along with this, they may find that it is hard for them to experience positive feelings for any length of time. In general, they could feel low and depressed, and feel very bad about themselves.

If they work hard and typically treat others well, it could be said that there is going to be no reason for them to feel this way. Based on how they feel, it will be as though they regularly do things that are bad and destructive.

It’s Clear

However, after coming to see that they feel unworthy of life, it can allow them to slow down and no longer struggle. They will see that, thanks to how they feel, it doesn’t matter what they do.

What could also stand out is that they have both consciously and unconsciously done things to push good out of their life. Taking into account how they feel, this will make complete sense.

The Truth

As they are on this planet, they have as much right as anyone else to be here and are worthy of life. And, as they are playing their part and are making a contribution, they deserve to receive something back.

This is something that they should know at the core of their being and by knowing this, they would be able to accept the good that life has to offer and there would be no need for them to endlessly struggle. One way of looking at this would be to say that this will show that their formative years were not very nurturing.

A Key Stage

Throughout their early years, they may have often been neglected and/or abused. This would have deprived them of the nutrients that they needed to develop a felt sense of worth and deserving, among other things.

They would have been treated as though they were bad and worthless, so it is to be expected that they would go on to feel unworthy of life as an adult and find it hard to receive. Then again, they could be this way because of what took place before they were born, with them being deprived of the nutrients that they needed whilst they were in their mother’s womb.

Another Angle

What took place during their time in their mother’s womb until they were a child could have a lot in common with what took place in their previous life. Upon hearing this, they might find it hard to accept that they have ‘been here before’ and this is not their first life.

With that aside, their last life, or the life that had and is having the biggest impact on them may have been a time when they were excluded from society or their tribe. Irrespective of why this was, they would have ended up feeling unworthy of life and they would have had to do their best to survive.

Carried Over

Once this life came to an end, how they were feeling wouldn’t have just disappeared, it would have played a part in what family they would incarnate into and the experiences they would have. If they were mistreated during their early years, it will show that they were not being punished and it didn’t reflect their essence.

Ultimately, they simply had a certain resonance and this resonance defined what did and didn’t happen to them. For them to put an end to how they experience life, it will be essential for them to resolve their inner wounds from this and the previous life that is preventing them from knowing that they are worthy of life.


If someone can relate to this and they are ready to change their life, they may need to reach out for external support. This is something that can be provided with the assistance of a therapist or healer.
