Finding your Self-Worth.
November 20, 2020
Self-Worth. Do I Matter? Do I Belong? Am I safe?
We all go through things differently. The important thing to remember is that we are all on the same journey. But how it affects each of us is totally different. Yes, we are all on the same journey of finding our health happiness. But how we each go through it affects each of us differently. The “end game” is what we all want most, but the most important game of all is how we play it along the way.
Our “Self-Worth” is important for us to heal our past, to be able live fully in the present, and to be able to dream and look forward to our future.
What defines my self-worth?
“Self-worth is simply defined as the level of importance you place on yourself. It is an emotional outlook that determines how and what you feel about yourself in comparison to other people. Self-worth is a fundamental part of our being, and it controls the way we see ourselves.”
So how do we increase our self-worth? Our Self-confidence? Our Self-being?
Use positive affirmations correctly.
Identify your competencies and develop them.
Learn to accept compliments.
Eliminate self-criticism and introduce self-compassion.
Affirm your real worth.
Catch your negative thoughts and words.
Practice mindfulness and being in the present moment.
Don't believe your negative thoughts.
Accept compliments with gratitude.
Focus on the positives about yourself.
Love yourself in your entirety.
Accept yourself. Acceptance is the first step in the ability to unconditionally value all parts of who you are and defining your self-worth.
What happens when you accept yourself?
You will meet more people like you! More people who are on the same journey as you!
When you accept yourself and your own self-worth you begin to realize that there are actually more people who share similar interests, values, and a personality like yours. It's actually quite easy and you'll find that people are basically the same and want the same things you do.
