Self Worth, as the name imply ‘Self’ and ‘Worth’ defining both words separately will make it a lot easier for you to understand it in your own way. I will go ahead in breaking down what Self Worth means.
Self worth simply means how you value yourself as a whole, as a person, as a human being.
Self worth is having total believe in who you are, without people’s opinion or what they think of you.
Self worth is total conviction about yourself, regardless of your challenges, shortcomings and disappointments.
How to build self worth
Find yourself and Understand who you are: who am I? Ask yourself that question and then genuinely answer the question.
The next question you should ask yourself is, what are my strength and weaknesses?
No human being is perfect, when you genuinely answer the question, it’s pretty clear on what to do. Work on your weaknesses and let your strength be what boost your inner confident.
Most people confuse self esteem for self worth. Self worth is more of the inside, while self esteem is an external confidence one portrays. Take note.
When you understand who you are, you will be aware of yourself, your shortcomings and your strength, and then you can kick start building your self worth from here.
To get it right, you have to ask yourself a whole lot of questions, you alone know yourself better.
Genuinely accept who you are: Accept who you were and who you have become, the past most times will play tricks on you, trying to hold you down by feeling sorry or unworthy of anything good. But hey! Forgive yourself, acknowledging you are only human, it’s not an excuse, it’s the fact. As you continue to strive each day to make yourself better, forgive yourself of the past.
Don’t shy away from your short comings, work on them instead, accept them and change them.
I personally use to hate to be corrected, but I got to realize, you can never improve yourself when you never take corrections.
I accepted my shortcomings and worked on it, and each day I kept working on it until it got better.
Don’t get me wrong, people’s opinion really don’t count, but when you are told of an ill character you possess, you will know from within, Accept this and work on it, to improve yourself.
Love yourself, the skin you are in and every single thing about yourself: each step you take in building your self worth gradually develop the next step, when you are very much aware of yourself, and have accepted who you are, you will automatically begin to love yourself, why? Because now know your value.
This stage of building your self worth will make your Self esteem to surface, your unshakable believe in yourself and confidence will make you outstanding.
This stage of building your self worth will also make you take responsibility of whatever happens in your life, without putting the blame on people or things.
You make your decisions, and you take full responsibility for whatever outcome it brings.
When you get to this stage of building your self worth, people’s opinion about who you are, won’t matter, because now you are not confused about who you are.
Your level of self worth determines how happy you would be, or can be. No one can make you feel less or put you down, because you have a vivid reminder of who you are.
I use myself as an example in most of my articles, because I am not perfect, It’s me being real with everyone that come across my article.
On this particular article ‘Self Worth’ I personally don’t believe I loose friends or loved once, They loose me.
Believe this, know how important you are, value yourself, love and respect yourself and every other thing will fall into place.
