Self-Worth is a big topic. Many women struggle to see their self-worth and a lot of men can feel the lack of self-worth in themselves.
It’s funny because on the outside most don’t appear to struggle with self-worth, but once we dig a little further beneath the layers the lack of self-worth is there. It is how we see how selves, how we treat ourselves, how we let others treat us. And by this I mean from the language that we use to speak to ourselves, what we put up with in our lives (personal and professional) and how we treat our bodies (no exercise, too much exercise, not enough rest, too much processed foods, the amount of alcohol consumed, even relying on stimulants throughout the day such as coffee to get through the endless goals of achievement), that a hidden areas of lack of self-worth.
Understanding ourselves and the question ‘Who Am I?’ and what is important to us and why, will help us to consider our self-worth, identifying and admitting to long-held beliefs or behaviours about our treatment of ourselves or how others treat us is also a big step in discovering our self-worth. But just realising that at times we may not truly understand our self-worth and investigating this is a big step forward in changing our perception of our self-worth.
At times of pending or ongoing life or professional transition will bring up questions about self-worth too, this is a good time to review your self-worth or gain assistance to do so.
I love this TED Talk by Casey Brown, it discusses ‘Know your worth, and ask for it’ while it is mostly about women still being paid less than men, it has some very important points that we can all apply to the rest of our lives. Click on the word ‘worth’ above in the title ( I can’t quite work out how to make the link appear different) and watch the TED talk or look it up on Youtube.
