The two words that can really reshape things are “Tzelem Elokim.”
Man is created in the image of Hashem.
That marvelous creation, called human being, is a reflection of the Divine.
Now think about it: If you really believe you’re carrying His image, would you use your mouth to speak in a lowly fashion? Would you dress improperly?
Thinking about those two words, what they tell us about who we are and what we represent, can change the way we see ourselves. Having a sense of self-worth changes how we project ourselves, how we act.
We’ve been invested with so much, we’re carrying such dignity.
We’re too good to act any other way. ~ Rebbetzin Raquel Kirszenbaum
