Our Self-Worth is an intrinsic value and our acceptance of ourselves wholeheartedly at all times knowing full well we have imperfections and limitations and loving yourself in spite of our flaws. Self-worth is a direct measure of how we value ourselves regardless of what others say. It’s, therefore, something that doesn’t get impacted by outside forces. Self-worth is steady and unflinching, and holds power – to radically transform our life for ultimate happiness, love and success as we feel worthy.
Lacking self-worth is like being a beautiful house without a solid foundation. When the winds of existence come along in the form of people, relationships, and tough situations, your house is not safe and can be damaged and even become unsafe and even collapse.
You alone are the most significant factor in how you feel about yourself, about your life, and about your circumstances. And that is essentially where your personal resolve and strength comes from. We can wear a mask temporarily like dressing up our beautiful house with a fresh coat of paint and new flower pots, but deep down we know its a lie as the foundation is not in place.
When we lack self-worth, there is an innate sense of dignity missing, we struggle to set personal boundaries, and we are in a constant state of self-doubt.
As Marianne Williamson famously put it:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.
