According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, self-worth is defined as: “a feeling that you are a good person who deserves to be treated with respect”.
Valuing yourself for who you are and recognizing that you are more than your mistakes is an important step toward self-worth. You were born worthy.
Your social media following, your job, your grades, your age, or how much money you have are all misinterpretations of true self-worth. It doesn’t matter what people think of you. What matters is if you are confident in yourself.
Take a moment to appreciate:
◾ How great of a friend you are
◾ Knowing you have the ability to achieve what you set your mind to
◾ Feeling that you are of value to those around you
◾ Being ok with discomfort even when you F.A.I.L. at something-
(First Attempt In Learning)
These are all great ways to truly accept and know your self-worth. Being able to overcome obstacles and still value the experience is so important for emotional well-being…and you deserve the very best!
