Building Self Worth

.

Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.”
August Wilson

.
Self worth is an internal state of being that comes from self-understanding, self-love, and self-acceptance.

.
To have a high level of self-worth means accepting yourself wholeheartedly at all times despite your flaws, weaknesses, and limitations. It is about recognising the real value of who you are – right here, right now, at this present moment.

.
Take the time to think about the following question and answer it with genuine honesty:

.
If I lost everything what would I actually have left that would be of value?

.
If you have a high level of self-worth, then having everything taken away from you will not change who you are as a person. In addition it will not shake your self-confidence because you just do not measure your value upon external circumstances. Instead, your value comes from within.

.
No matter what happens externally and no matter what is taken away from me, I am not affected internally. And that is essentially what matters most when it comes to building your self-worth.

.
Who you are and how you see yourself are keys to understanding your true value. How others see you and how they speak about you, is also, of course, important. But this is not so much about them but rather about how you feel about yourself as a result of how others see or speak about you.

.
Your strengths are the things that help build your self-confidence. They are the things that allow you to move forward with greater self-assurance. However, true strengths are only strengths by your own measure.

.
Take a closer look to identify what you see as your strengths today.

.
‘Why should we worry about what others think of us, do we have more confidence in their opinions than we do our own?”
Brigham Young
