Your Core values are your fundamental beliefs which make life feel comfortable and safe.
When the people around us have a similar set of values life flows better. These guiding principles represent the ‘authentic you’, and guide our behaviour to help us understand the difference between right and wrong ~ that’s for us, of course rather than other people. Often, when you hear someone discuss why they fell in love with their other half, they will mention that they have the same values. In this case, they are often talking about core values, or internal beliefs and it's important that we live our life with our values to guide us; and stand firm and honour these beliefs on a day to day basis. Unfortunately our authenticity is not always what we present to the world. If you put small value on your values your world will not value you.
Feel the strong beauty within you and do not compromise what really matters to you.
It's important too to remember that, sadly, a person's core values aren’t always positive. Some people may be driven by self-interest or greed, and these are core values, too, if they dictate the way that a person approaches their life. Negative core values can develop when people live in fear or insecurity and are forced to focus on survival in difficult circumstances. Their values can pull you down if you are not wary of this clash of values and you will be compromising who you are and what really matters to you and what makes you sing inside.
Try this exercise from http://www.taproot.com/archives/37771 and be honest with yourself about where you compromise your values and please do stand firm and stick to your values. If you feel you need help with this then I would love to work with you.
