When you know and understand your value and self-worth, you won't let anyone mistreat you. Self-worth is what enables us to believe that we are capable of doing our best with our talents, of contributing well in society and knowing that we deserve to lead a fulfilling life. Building it up is therefore natural, essential, and healthy. Quick Tips:
1. Pay close attention to your views about yourself. How you perceive yourself, how you talk about yourself and how you represent yourself eventually become the reality for you.
2. Learn to overcome a fear of self-love. Healthy self-love is about being your own best friend and treating yourself with love, care, tolerance, generosity and compassion.
3. Trust your own feelings. Self-worth requires that you learn to listen to your own feelings and not automatically respond to the feelings of other people.
4. Analyze yourself. Recognize where you're underestimating yourself and where you may need to make some adjustments.
5. Stop making your self-worth conditional on other people. Once you try to live up to an image of what you think others want to you to be, you lose self-worth.
6. Tell yourself that you matter. Affirming your self-worth openly to yourself can be a very good way to start changing the internal negative speak that you might have developed over time.
7. Take responsibility for you. Responsibility is about owning up to the fact that you are in control of your attitude, your reactions and your sense of worth.
8. Value yourself regardless of your job and earnings. Tying your self-worth to tangible or material items is a self-worth trap.
9. Value your time. Evaluate the balance between the time you give to others and how that time needs to be spent on your own life.
10. Follow through. Make time on a regular basis to check on your progress in building your self-worth and continue to work on it everyday.
While following these tips, remember to keep a good balance and stay grounded.
