One of the biggest revelations a person can get is knowing his/her true self and worth. Once we know our worth and identify our true selves, we tend to know the kind and amount of stuff we take into our system.
Knowing your worth as a person does not make you proud but makes you understand that you are not a trash bin where different rubbish gets dumped in.
It’s easy to identify when you don’t feel valued, respected, or appreciated by others and it’s also easy to identify when they know your worth.
Self-worth goes beyond just knowing, you need to understand first the term Self Worth: A sense of one’s value as a person.
Once you know your self worth and refuse to accept being treated in a way less than you deserve, then you become ready to grow.
Never Negotiate Yourself Worth
The minute you negotiate your self-worth and accept being treated less from anyone, then you are telling yourself and others around you that you don’t deserve anything better and then the vicious and frustrating cycle begins.
Your energy, confidence, and attitude are the currency that others will transact with to get to you.
Sinead Kennedy said “If you aren’t being treated with love and respect, check your price tag. Maybe you’ve marked yourself down. It’s you who tell people what you are worth. Get off the clearance rack and get behind the glass where they keep the valuables”
Confidence is a worth booster. If you lack self-confidence then you are telling your world you are not worthy to be reckoned with. Remember a lion knows his worth that’s why a lion will never eat grass regardless of the forest economy. So, in the forest of life, don’t twerk your value. Be confident to tell people what you believe is right and this will positively fuel your worth.
Stand For Something.
It’s commonly said that if you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything. If you are a Christian be a genuine Christian, if you are a fashion designer be known for that. Be known for a service or skill only you can offer best. This will boost your self worth.
Don’t Let Yourself Be Treated Like an Option
When you are treated as an option, narrow down the options by removing yourself from the equation. .sometimes you can mean almost nothing to someone who means so much to you, remove yourself from the friendship, it’s not pride but self-respect.
Advice To The General Public
You may not know what you have until you lose it. Don’t be the worth destroyer, encourage people around you in the very way you can. Enjoy your relationship with friends and family while it last because nothing lasts forever. People come and go, but it is the impact they leave in our lives that is engraved in the sands of time.
If your life revolves around negative set of individuals, positive changes won’t come your way. Don’t ever give part-time people full-time position in your life. Know your value and what you have to offer, and never settle for anything less.
