As you get older your self-worth and standards should bee higher. You should never bee in any situation where you are unhappy or dissatisfied. You should bee able to prove your point and have more confidence in not only your work but in yourself.
Now, what is self-worth? Why do you lack it? Self-worth is the sense of one’s own value or worth as a person. Most people lack it for many reasons, here are a few: because of certain relationships you’ve had in the past, your parents or friends influenced your behavior towards yourself, you always view other people’s lives instead of yours or you never think you are good enough.
At some point especially as women, we have gone through this all. Always questioning are we good enough, especially for our spouse. Some women and men change who they are while being with someone or even in their career. Confidence just doesn’t come overnight; however every day you must grow and learn to love yourself more every day.
My story: Self-worth is what I experience mostly in dating. Sometimes I would lower my standards for a male that didn’t have anything going for himself. It made me question how much am I worth? Why am I allowing myself to just settle? I’m still learning every day but being aware of this now is forming me to become a better me. Now being alone and finally taking time for myself, I’m realizing how beautiful I am. I don’t need approval from a guy or society on my appearance. I’m learning to bee more patient with people and things. I’m also learning to not play the victim and learning what i need to work on as an individual.
At some point today question your self-worth in your relationship, career, and inner self. Question if you are truly happy? Do you trust your own feelings? Are you changing who you are because of others?
I value myself way more now and just not going to settle for anything or anyone that truly doesn’t make me happy.
