Like the saying of Brigham Young, Why should we worry about what others think of us, do we have more confidence in their opinions than we do our own?"
In live we have so many oppositions from both those that are close to us and even those we barely know but in all these we have one thing that either helps us keep our head on track or makes us fall and that is our self-worth. Self-worth in simple terms, is the value we place on ourselves as individuals. It can be negative or positive and everyone has placed a value on themselves either knowingly or unknowingly and I'm not exempted.
Just like everyone, I have also placed a value on myself and it is both positive and negative sadly. Sometimes, I feel like I deserve everything that is reachable why other times I feel undeserving of them. While growing up, I always feel like, I don't deserve some things, I'd prefer someone else gets them.
But I've come to realize that in life, when you work for something and there is a reward for it, take it and don't feel like you don't merit it. While there are other times when I put a lot of effort into something but I find out that it was all a waste. At this point, I start feeling inferior to others and this makes me listen to the negative things people say about me and at such, I tend to look down on myself and feel undeserving too.
I'm still trying to build self-worth to a point where I don't have to feel inferior to anyone or feel higher than anyone but just be me. I understand that the more I feel inferior to others the more I reduce the value I offer to the world but its just so hard sometimes to fight this feeling of low self esteem but I know I can do it. As at now, I feel the reward I get for my self worth is not really worth my worth but l want it to keep getting better as time goes by, because I know my creator knows how to reward me best.
I want to leave you with the words of Fred Roger which says, "If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person."
Never feel you don't have anything you can offer because someone or even people are out there who wish you were always around them because they see something good in you. You are more valuable than you think, so don't ever place a value on yourself because you are invaluable.
