With self-love comes self-worth.
Have you ever felt so good about where and who you are that nothing can stop you?
And then a wrench was thrown in the mix that made the magic stop or even question everything and its existence?
Yes, it happens to so many of us!
But here is the big question, are you allowing it to stop you completely and letting it affect everything you do?
If I had a penny for all the times I stopped and go-ed on my self-worth I’d be a millionaire (maybe)!
Different reasons from someone’s small opinion to something I saw on the internet made me just question myself.
And let me tell you, there is no reason for anyone or anything to question who you are inside.
How you love yourself and what worth you put on yourself is all up to you!
HOW YOU LOVE YOURSELF AND WHAT WORTH YOU PUT ON YOURSELF IS ALL UP TO YOU!
Even though there are a trillion things that can hinder your self-worth, I’ve narrowed them down to the 5 that most likely have or continue to limit your worth.
The Negative Self Talk
Just like with self-love it all starts with ourselves.
What you say to yourself has a huge impact on the things you do. For example, saying “I’m so ugly” is training your brain to think that you aren’t beautiful (Which you are not btw).
Switch up the narrative to be positive!
It’s going to be a challenge but start building that habit of replacing the negative things you say to yourself with positive ones.
You can also use positive affirmations to add good things to say to yourself. Learn how here.
For some, this might be a truth pill to swallow.
The people you hang around have an influence on you. Period.
If you are around people that are constantly negative or you don’t feel aligned with your values it can make you get in a space where you feel drained or even feel negative too.
You don’t have to cut ties with people who aren’t with your purpose, just spend more time with those you know are either rooting for you or you can feel good around too.
Living In The Past
*Disclaimer: I understand this can be a touchy subject, but for reference, I’m speaking more about the small things in the past that shouldn’t ruin your day like someone getting the promotion at work that you should’ve gotten.
Nothing can stop you more than thinking about the past. I know it’s tough. We are scarred, shattered, or even hurt from things that have happened to us.
But if you are in a good place now, why would you allow the past to steal your shine and self-worth?
The past is called the past for a reason, it’s long gone, baby. The only way the past is present is if you stay in the past by reliving those moments.
If the thoughts of the past come up, start thinking about your future instead and about how far you’ve come already.
Trust me, you’ll be happy you did!
Comparing Ourselves To Others
Sometimes seeing others’ success or what they happen to show can make you look inward and think “How come I don’t have that” or “Their life is so much better than mine.”
See where you start to compare your self-worth to the self-worth you’ve given them?
It’s so easy to devalue yourself when it’s up against other people.
The best thing to do is just remember that you are doing the best you can in life and there is something within you that others don’t have.
And instead of comparing, just think of something positive to say instead that way you change up the negative narrative within.
Not Giving Yourself A Chance
It’s so easy to disregard ourselves because of things that we’ve been through. But always remember that you are more important, loved and worth than you think.
Self-worth comes when self-love is implemented. Don’t discount yourself, Give yourself the credit, compassion, and the care that you deserve.
Start giving yourself a chance on opportunities, to have fun, be happy, and to cultivate your self-worth.
There are so many things that can limit our self-worth but none of them should take them away.
By knowing your self-worth and raising your self-love, you’ve got undeniable power within.
Continue growing and appreciating who you are! We are in this together!
