I’ve made many mistakes in my life, but one of the biggest is that I didn’t value myself enough. This isn’t just about being a better person, it’s about being able to live up to your potential and not waste time on things that don’t matter. In this article we’ll look at what self-worth is and how you can take steps towards valuing yourself more.
Understanding self-worth is the key to success, and knowing how you can value yourself will help you reach your goals.
Self-worth is not about self-esteem, nor is it about self-love or even self-respect. Self-worth encompasses all of these things—and more. It is a sense of personal value that comes from within, not from external sources like others’ opinions or approval. In other words:
You have confidence in your own abilities and decisions
You know what you want out of life and how you’re going to get it no matter what people think or say (even if they are right)
You feel good about who you are as a person
Good and bad
The only way to truly understand the nature of good and bad is to examine it in the context of your own personal experience. A good friend might be someone who makes you laugh, but another person may have a different definition of “good friend” that includes treating others with kindness and respect. What one person would consider a bad habit, another could perceive as a unique trait or even an attractive quality.
So what does this mean for your self-worth? It simply means that when it comes down to it, there are no objective standards out there dictating what’s “good” or “bad.” All you can do is take care of yourself and try your best not to judge yourself based on other people’s opinions or expectations—because nobody knows you better than yourself!
Connecting the dots
When you have a good sense of your own self-worth and know who you are, it will be much easier for you to be happy.
If you don’t value yourself, if you don’t know yourself, if you don’t accept yourself or love yourself fully, then living in your heart will feel like a struggle. You might feel like an outsider looking in on other people’s lives from the outside because they seem so perfect and happy while yours is less than perfect and not so happy at all.
What is real?
Real is the way you feel, real is the way you think, real is the way you act and react. What is real? Real is how you treat yourself and others.
Real may seem like a broad term but that’s why we use it so much in our daily lives. We all know what it means when someone says something isn’t real or a dream come true isn’t really happening until it does. But what about when we say I feel like I have no self worth because my boss yelled at me for no reason? In this instance do you believe that feeling has any validity? Probably not, but if someone else were to tell them otherwise then their self worth might increase as a result of their words and actions towards them – which would be considered ‘real’ by most standards today but not by mine!
What are the right questions?
It is a very good question. Why do bad things happen to good people? Why does suffering exist at all? Why does evil exist in the world, and what can we do about it?
These are questions that have been asked for thousands of years and there are many answers, many of them contradictory. The answers that most people give you depend on their religious beliefs or lack thereof. Some will say that God created everything, including evil, and He must have a purpose for it all; others might say that there’s no God so this stuff just happens without rhyme or reason; some believe in karma (the idea that what goes around comes around) while others believe we make our own luck through hard work and perseverance; still others believe everything is predetermined by fate—we may be able to influence our destiny but not change what has already been decided.
Your worth is beyond measure
It’s easy to measure the value of something, like a house or a car. But self worth is an entirely different matter. The best way to think about your own self worth is that it’s beyond measure—the only way to really know how much you’re worth is by measuring how much you value yourself. And even then, there are no set standards for how much someone should love themselves.
So how do we make sense of this? How can we define these things? The answer lies in understanding that every person has their own unique relationship with themselves: some people may feel confident and capable; others may feel insecure or inept about certain aspects of life. But regardless of where anyone falls on the spectrum, understanding that everyone deserves respect will help them find their place in the world—and hopefully inspire others along the way!
Your time and your energy are precious. You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do, and no one can make you feel bad about that. It’s up to you to decide what your worth is and how much of yourself you want to share with those around you.
