A high-self worth is NOT something I have always had. Honestly, it’s something I struggled with for most of my young adulthood. It’s something that I had to 𝐛𝐮𝐢𝐥𝐝. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
I subconsciously sought my worth through things that were outside of me…achievements, fame, how desired I was, or my relationships. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣
But placing our values on things that are outside of us will always leave us feeling less than. Because it’s based on things you can’t control. ⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
𝘗𝘰𝘴𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘷𝘢𝘭𝘶𝘦𝘴 are reality-based, immediate and controllable, such as kindness, work-ethic, following-through on commitments, etc. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
While 𝘯𝘦𝘨𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘷𝘢𝘭𝘶𝘦𝘴 are not based on fact, not immediate, nor controllable, such as a relationship, career, income, following, fame, etc. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
But believing you have value does not come from a single decision or statement as much as I wish it did! It comes from new experiences and how we choose to measure ourselves (values.) ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

Do you need to be single for a while to know that you can be on your own? ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Do you need to find a workout that you truly enjoy to give yourself the experience of liking movement? ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Do you need to give yourself an experience of doing work your passionate about, so you don’t have to dread work anymore? ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Self-worth is a marathon that never ends. It’s a mindset and a way of living. You will have to continue to seek new experiences that shift your values and build your worth. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Because life will keep coming at you.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ 

Have a great week,
