One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Treasure

Firstly I am not sexiest so before we get started I just want to say..

“One Woman’s Trash Is Another Woman’s Treasure”

There is something about this quote that I love. It could be the fact that it gives everything an opportunity. I just want to make it clear that this “trash” is a figurative thing. It doesn’t mean that you are literally trash. It means for one reason or another you’re not wanted, not valued or maybe you’re not the best for what ever the situation is.

I have experienced this quote in multiple ways. Relationships are the first and most obvious. Someone breaks up with you and you leave the situation feeling a little downtrodden, hurt and unwanted. That is a natural reaction to a break up. The most important thing to remember is that while this situation hasn’t worked out it doesn’t have to be the last relationship you have. If you want to find love there are plenty of other people for you to get to know and hopefully one day fall in love with. You need to give yourself time and understand that sometimes the heart takes longer to heal. Sometimes the confusion will last longer than you expect. This isn’t something you should worry about. There is no right or wrong way to live life. Just keep on keeping on and try and live life to the best of your ability.

Work is another area that this quote relates to. Sometimes in your job you feel unwanted or unimportant. Again this is totally a natural part of life. While in an ideal situation you should feel valued every day unfortunately this is life, people get busy and sometimes your hard work will be overlooked. Don’t let this upset you. The experience you are gaining from working so hard is more valuable than the praise you’re not reviewing from your colleagues or bosses. One day someone will see the value and potential you have and again you’re the treasure.

This quote can definitely translate to family life as well. While often it is your family who have your back and support you no matter what sometimes you have to make decisions your family might not like. Whether it is taking a job in another country, being with a person your family don’t like or even doing a job your family don’t agree with. Family are family and hopefully your family will support you through anything and everything but occasionally that doesn’t happen. Don’t be put off. You’ve got the ability to start your own family. While it definitely is nice to have the blessing of the people who brought you into this world you write your own destiny and in that you’ve got every opportunity to create and contribute to a loving family unit.

There are a million more ways this quote could effect you and I am sure I have many more to experience but right now that is about all I can share with you. I just want you to know that this isn’t  the end. You’ve got a bright future ahead of you and while sometimes you feel completely worthless you won’t always. Some days are more difficult than others and eventually you will find your feet. You might feel like trash today but in someone else’s eyes you are the treasure. I hope you also realise how much you’ve got to offer soon.
