What is Self Worth?

Welcome fellow souls to “The Human Family Crash Course Series,” a new project collaborated together by empress2inspire.blog and diosraw.com. Together we will be working on a different topic for each crash course; our first topic is focused on “Self Love.” Each topic will have eight posts with posts on Mondays and Thursdays. We hope you enjoy our series and we look forward to knowing how our posts have inspired you!

Self Worth

The only one who gets to decide your worth is you. It doesn’t come from your bank account or the number of friends you have. It doesn’t come from what someone else says you are worth. And it doesn’t come from a number on the scale or the number of nights you go out..it’s called self worth for a reason, your worth comes from you. It comes from being yourself and being proud of who you are. It comes from being someone that you can count on and being someone you love. Because when it comes down to it, the numbers will change. But what won’t change is who you are deep inside – beautiful, limitless, wonderful, creative, strong, capable, and that is where you worth comes from. ~ Walk the Earth 

Your divine potential is within your reach. You are powerful, purposeful and valuable. Most of us have had troubles with confidence in the past. We know what it takes to live your best life. It has to do with positive abundance based thinking.

How to Put Value on Yourself and Know What you are Worth?

Self-worth is the affective or emotional aspect of self and generally refers to how we feel about or how we value ourselves (one’s self-worth). Self-worth can also refer to the general idea we have of ourselves and self-worth can refer to particular measures about components of self-concept. You have to start learning how to enjoy yourself more if you want to enjoy your life more. 

Here’s how you should not measure your self -worth :

  • Appearance – This is the most pressured measurement of worth for both men and women. Society says that they should look a certain way which pushes people to do diets, vigorous exercises, and worrying constantly about their appearance. Beauty industry constantly loves to target these insecurities. You will not find your worth by tying it to your appearance.
  • Trying to Find Your Self Worth in Other People – Society says that the one is out there for us. Yes he/she is. But that special someone will not complete you. Trying to find your self worth in other people is egging on the idea of codependency rather than focusing on the idea that you are valuable and worthy more than anyone.
  • Work and Achievement – This includes degrees, certification, title at work. This is very limited and judgemental thinking. If you let work and achievement define your self worth then you have to constantly achieve some higher degree to add to self worth. This thinking can also make you look down upon people and push them away. 
  • Material Objects – people tie their self worth, programmed by society to material objects such as cars, devices etc. You likely know at least one person whose self-worth is measured by their income or material possessions. But people who measure their self-worth by the net worth never feel “valuable enough.”

In the next section coming out this Thursday, we will be deep diving into “How you can measure your self worth in healthy ways”. Watch out this space for more.

      Your sense of self-worth helps you to trust your own judgment and make better decisions, which are important leadership qualities that can help you advance in your career. Self-worth can lend you the confidence to run meetings, support other team members and have greater autonomy at work.

    That sense of self worth is your birthright of Dignity. We are all born with it. The inherent sense value you need to survive in life. It is your wealth in health. when you see and honour this value, then others will too. It should be taught from day one and stamped right there on our birth certificates. That’s my view. How now measures value is critical to personal developments.
    Thanks for this piece here stressing this.

      Most welcome. Self-esteem is an individual’s subjective evaluation of their own worth. Self-esteem encompasses beliefs about oneself (for example, “I am unloved”, “I am worthy”) as well as emotional states, such as triumph, despair, pride, and shame. There is more to come in future posts.

    Thank you so much for this. It serves as a reminder for all of us. Self-worth comes from within. ✨

      According to the self-worth theory, self-worth is determined mostly by our self-evaluated abilities and our performance in one or more activities that we deem valuable. However, people commonly use other yardsticks to measure their self-worth.

      Yes indeed. Integrity is the unity between a person’s words and actions. Having integrity means that your creeds and your deeds match up—that the words you speak and the life you live are one and the same. Having integrity means being consistent in your beliefs, living by your principles, and acting in accordance with your values.

        Personal integrity is an innate moral conviction to stand against things that are not virtuous or morally right. Integrity is one of the fundamental values employers seek in the employees that they hire. Integrity is the foundation of a person who demonstrates sound moral and ethical principles at work.

        Isn’t it?
        Many run after what glitters,at the expense of harming those around them. Integrity is our attitude, when we have and when we do not have.

        🙂

        With the slightest hint of a lack of integrity, the claims of integrity turn forcefully against those who would own them. In the process, credibility is more seriously damaged. Hence, a big risk. Some may try to take a step back and say they exert themselves for integrity or strive toward integrity.

      Yes Gary. Does it ever seem like people place too much importance on their sense of self-worth? If so, consider this: believing in your value is a crucial element of mental health. Without it, it’s easy to become depressed and anxious. Fading into the background in social situations is easily done. What’s more, it’s possible to let opportunities pass you by. You can develop a healthy sense of self-worth without losing empathy for others or becoming excessively self-centered. With all its benefits, self-worth can bring you and the people you care about greater happiness. Given that, there’s every reason to improve it.

        So true. People are many-layered and we would do ourselves a favor to work on getting all those aspects healthy.
