The last year has been crazy, our life as we knew it has changed completely. As I scroll to through LinkedIn, I see many posts by people who have lost their jobs due to the situation brought about by the pandemic.
This quote by Brigette made me ponder on what I base my self worth. The first question I asked myself what is self worth.
Self-worth is an internal state of being that comes from self-understanding, self-love, and self-acceptance.
Linking my self worth to something external like my job or my salary or my possessions doesn’t make sense. Rather having a high sense of self worth implies:
- An unshakeable and unflinching belief in my abilities.
- Feeling deserving of happiness, success irrespective of the difficulties, disappointments, dejection, rejection.
- Accepting myself wholeheartedly at all times with all my flaws, limitations and weaknesses.
- Not allowing other’s opinion and outside forces to define my current state of mind. Never allowing outcomes to shake my confidence, faith or resolve.
You alone are the most significant factor in how you feel about yourself, your life and your circumstances.
