With the holidays upon us, you should know that you matter.
You matter now and the rest of the year as well.
Feeling unimportant is common at the holidays.
For people living alone during the shelter-in-place of the pandemic, it’s easy to forget that you matter.
The end-of-the-year holidays are here. Between the concerns of the pandemic and the business of the holidays, it’s common to forget that you matter.
Why do bloggers matter? Don’t their readers? Doesn’t everyone?
To do research for this post, I interviewed experts familiar with the area of self-esteem. They tell you why you matter with positive quotes for depression relief.
The quotes are from the worlds of literature and entertainment just to name a few.
By the time you are done reading this post, you will have methods and inspirational quotes to help you remember you matter.
Let’s get started empowering ourselves.
“You Matter” Background
This post is based on the work of Matthew Emerzian, Founder and CEO of Every Monday Matters.
Background: Emerzian worked for the Kardashians and in the Music Industry. Emerzian had a panic attack. His therapist told him he’ll never feel better unless he realized life isn’t about him; it’s about helping others.
Today, Emerzian spreads positivity.
You matter to so many people – to yourself, your readers, your colleagues in the blogging community, your relationships, your online and offline communities, and the world.
However, sometimes it all seems so overwhelming and we disconnect from or simply forget how incredible we are.
This post will inspire you to own your awesomeness and will boldly remind you just how much and why you matter.
Bloggers and content creators give free information and empower others with knowledge.
Even if you’ve made mistakes in life, you matter. You are an inspiration.
As bloggers, you should let your readers know, “You matter.” You should also know “You matter,” and believe those words.
You change the world from the inside out. There are many bloggers, but there is only one of you.
Do you feel a pressure to be “on” for your readers and others all the time? This is common. You are not alone.
As humans, we feel. We have emotions. It helps to understand them rationally.
Covid-19 affected us all this year. Emerzian asks you to remember what your life was like before the shelter-in-place. Can you try to relate to your feelings and life then?
Which feeling do you connect to– preCovid or during Covid?
During Covid, people felt a loss of control. Do you still feel this way? Are you resentful? Are you uncertain about the future? Do you feel lethargic?
How to Remember You Matter
Take baby steps and move one step at a time.
Head hopeful into the future.
Act on your decisions.
Accept that life is messy. You will find perspective.
Be flexible. This includes being ready to serve.
Understand you might slide back.
Be honest about how you’re feeling.
Accept that it’s okay to make mistakes.
Accept that it’s okay not to be okay sometimes.
You’ll get a sense of personal accomplishment from taking these steps no matter how small.
Live like you matter. How can you help others more than you do?
Lead like you matter. Get more prepared than you used to be.
How can you lead your readers? How can you be a better leader in your family? How can you help these people make wise decisions and care of themselves?
I Matter, You Matter, We Matter
I matter: It’s okay to make mistakes.
You matter: Your words and actions are powerful. We play a role in shaping our readers and other people like our family members. You provide a service people need. You can lead the way. Bring compassion and empathy.
Your honesty matters. Your vision casting steers the steady ship.
We matter: We are stronger together. You are part of something bigger than yourself.
Support each other. The Mostly Blogging Link Exchange and Bloggers Collaboration Group were formed with this in mind.

“You Matter” Quotes
I’ve been always in pursuit of words of wisdom whenever life knocks me down.
Here’s a favorite quote of mine that keeps on inspiring and uplifting me during challenging times:
51. “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” – Steve Jobs
This quote from Apple’s founder shed me some light when I had no confidence in myself.
52. “I’ve always believed that my ideas, talents, opinion, and thoughts are mediocre. I am not as brilliant and cool compared to others.
I was a slave of a 9-to-5 corporate job that robbed my time and passion. Not until I took a leap of faith and pursue my own business.
Little by little, I started to see the subtle giant in me. I started embracing the mediocre things, my strengths, my dreams, my skills. I started to live outside society’s standards of what’s good enough and what’s not.
The truth is, it’s just a matter of how you see yourself and conquering the ‘I’m not good enough mentality.”
I appreciate you for taking the time to read my thoughts about “you matter” quotes. This is something that has been on my mind quite a bit recently and would like to see what other people have to say.

My Quote Inside
53. “It is not the way you look, it’s the way you feel that matters,” a Banish movement quote.
54. “Protect the way you feel about yourself, first and foremost. Everything you see and hear is just noise, they are just what society and marketing suggest for you to be happy.
It is not about how you look – how perfect your skin, body or hair is – that does not fix your internal confidence! I know a lot of people who pretend their whole lives trying to achieve this level of perfection on the outside but inside, they’re dead and depressed.
We need to take time and put in the effort to work on ourselves and be our most authentic version – that will make us the happiest.”

94. “If you are feeling depressed or simply out of sorts connect with nature. If you need new ideas, go to the wilderness.
If you need to mend your heart and find forgiveness for yourself and others—go to a place that has some wildness in it. Nature is a place to do nothing, to just be. Smell each part of nature on your path.
Lie on the grass or sit on a rock, watch the clouds move. Search for messages from the loving energy around you in the shapes of the clouds and in the behavior of the animals you meet.”
95. “Get out of your comfort zone. Get out of the habit of immediately making yourself comfortable whenever you feel anything. The feeling is a huge part of being alive!
Don’t reach for a chair to avoid sitting on the grass—sit on the grass! Sleep in a hammock or sleeping bag in your own back yard from time to time.
Let yourself feel the cold, feel the heat, feel the wind on your face, get soaked by the rain rather than maintaining a constant temperature or hiding under an umbrella.
Jump into a pile of snow and bury yourself in it. Walk for hours in a forest. Learn what it feels like to be really hungry and thirsty so that food and water feel like the huge gift they really are.”
