What is Self-Worth?

Self-worth is the belief you are loveable regardless of how you evaluate your own traits (qualities and attributes). Self-worth is the opinion you have about yourself and the value you place on yourself. Worthy = deserving. Self-worth comes from within, low self-worth is corrected by cultivating self-belief. When we do not have or have low self-worth, the feelings of being worthy or love we have a void. We struggle because we have not had our needs met and are emotionally unfulfilled. When we want to regain self-worth we can try to understand why we are seeking outside approval. We can pay attention to our self-talk and re-direct it when it is steering in a negative direction. We can journal our thoughts and ask: Why don’t I trust my own opinion on this? Why am I upset because they disagree with me? Why did I say yes when I didn’t want to be part of this? What do I value in this interaction? Writing out our thoughts helps us clarify what’s on our minds and helps us understand it and accept it. We can learn to trust ourselves. We can have enough confidence in what we choose to bring to the table, we don’t have to strive for perfection, we belong here. We don’t need to let anyone tell us our opinion is not good enough. We can set boundaries around people that are not good for us. We can learn to accept ourselves for who we truly are, with all our flaws and mistakes that make us human. We can do the work every day, we can practice and get uncomfortable whilst being kind and gentle with ourselves. Gradually, we will find the confidence to feel worthy, valued and loved regardless of how others perceive us. You’ll be amazed at what you attract after you start believing in what you deserve. This is self-worth.
