Hello again friends! Last week we started talking about self-worth. I shared where some of my insecurities came from and how I equated my own self-worth with how I looked. Well, this week we are going to talk about building up our self-worth. I did some research and found that there are steps to this and the first step is self-understanding. There is a lot that goes into this, so let’s dive in!
To have self-understanding we have to ask ourselves a lot of questions. I am going to do my best to ask the most important questions to not overwhelm us. The first set of questions I am going to ask are difficult but will definitely help us get a better understanding of how we see ourselves. So here goes…
First question, what if everything was taken away and you were all you had left? I have thought about this question a lot but it honestly is difficult to imagine. If I had to guess it would be a really hard thing to go through. Especially if we aren’t fully okay with who we are. I know that a lot of people find value in what they have and although that is not necessarily a bad thing, we need to have that much, if not more value in ourselves, not just our possessions because if everything was taken away would we have anything left of value? I didn’t know how to answer this, but then I realized that yes, we all would. I would still be a mom, I would still be a nurse, I would still have my personality and I honestly really like my personality. I am funny and kind and I would still be me, just with a little less baggage. So, if I can find value in myself I know you all can too.
Until next time,
