One of the most difficult things to do is find your worth. Most of us have spent our lives living with an underlying question of “What is my worth?” or “Am I worth it?”. You can never be happy and confident if you don’t know your value.
If you don’t know your worth, chances are you fall for people who cannot see how amazing and valuable a person you are. You don’t have to earn your worth, you just have to know it. One of the most important things is self-love and understanding who you are as a person. Once you truly understand yourself and love yourself for exactly who you are, everything else will fall into place.
Here are ten ways how to find your worth:
Be true to yourself
The best way for you to find your worth is by being the most real version of yourself there is. Love yourself unconditionally and cherish every moment of every day because tomorrow isn’t promised. Don’t ever change who you are just because someone else doesn’t like it or wants you to be different-you can never please everyone so why bother? Be the best person possible and live your life without worrying about anyone else’s opinion on how you should live it! You’re better than that.
Don’t aim to impress-aim to succeed and do whatever makes YOU happy. Keep doing what you love, keep spending time with those people that support and motivate you, and keep improving as a person! Life isn’t always easy and you might fail at times but never give up on yourself and always push forward no matter what life throws your way.
Love your imperfections
Everyone has flaws because everyone is human. Instead of trying to hide your flaws and imperfections, face them head-on with courage. Your fears are what keep you from moving forward in life-so throw fear out the window and show yourself how brave you can be!
You’re never going to be perfect and that’s okay. You are not supposed to be perfect because there is no such thing as perfection. We all have different imperfections that make us who we are-it makes us real. Make an effort every day to look for something positive about who you are instead of focusing on all your “flaws”. Flaws are perfectly fine and they make you the person that you are today.
Stop comparing yourself to other people
We all know how it feels like to be jealous of someone else’s success, their beauty, or even the way they dress. One shouldn’t compare themselves to others because beauty is subjective and no one can get exactly what you want in life-nor should there be!
Everyone has different wants, needs, and desires, it’s okay! Instead of trying to copy someone else’s style, try working on your style which will draw attention instead of jealousy. Your style also reveals who you are as a person so it’s important to be comfortable with being yourself in front of everyone.
Find your passion in life
What do you love doing? What are you passionate about? You can’t always rely on someone else for your happiness and fulfillment in life. Find something that makes you happy, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem to other people.
There is so much more to life than trying to be the next big thing out there-just find what makes you happy and pursue it with all of your heart! There’s nothing more amazing than having a passion and happily pursuing it every day – no matter what anyone says.
Don’t let your past determine who you are today
The decisions we made yesterday don’t define who we are today, just like our present decisions don’t define who we become tomorrow. We all make mistakes-it’s part of being human. Mistakes are great because they help us learn from them without having to make the same mistakes twice! Each time you make a mistake, you gain more experience and become wiser in the future.
Our past defines us because it makes our present possible. You should be proud of where you’ve been because if it weren’t for your difficult times, there wouldn’t be an amazing person standing here today.
Put yourself first
Yes, it might seem selfish but you can’t help anyone until you’ve helped yourself first. To be of use to others, you have to start by taking care of your own needs and being happy with life on your own.
Love yourself more than you love anyone else-even if that person is a family member, a friend, or a significant other. Be the best version of yourself possible without trying to be someone else. Set goals for yourself and work hard every day on achieving those goals because when you put in all the effort into doing something great for yourself, people will be drawn towards that greatness and will want to know what makes you so amazing! People are attracted towards the positivity and happiness which they want.
Forget about what you can’t control and focus on controlling what you can
Don’t let anyone else dictate your future or the path that you should take in life. Only you know what is best for yourself and no one out there has the right to say otherwise! The only thing we have control over is ourselves and our thoughts, feelings, and actions towards others – so embrace those things because those are also important as well.
Our fates are not pre-determined so stop worrying about the “What Ifs” in life and start enjoying life as it happens every day like tomorrow might be your last day here on earth. Stop dwelling on everything that’s wrong with every moment of every day thinking that it won’t get better and just focus on what makes you happy and living your life the best way possible.
Don’t be afraid to live your truth
Everyone has a side of themselves that they keep hidden from the world-that’s okay! You don’t have to be everything for everyone and you certainly don’t have to try and change yourself to meet someone else’s expectations of who they want you to become.
Live your truth without caring what people think about you because everyone is going through their own separate personal journey in life and no one has the right to judge yours. You can only live with regrets if you hide who you are so why would anyone want that?
Be forgiving of yourself and others
The world we live in is cruel and unforgiving towards certain people for no real reason at all just because someone doesn’t look the same as you or believe in the same things you do, it doesn’t mean they’re a bad person! Everyone makes mistakes and everyone deserves a 2nd chance.
You might have done something wrong but that’s okay because everyone else has made mistakes too so why not let them go? Forgiveness will allow you to move on without unnecessary guilt weighing you down every day. If someone forgives you, try doing the same thing back because karma always pays back double eventually.
Take care of yourself
Another way to find your worth is by taking care of yourself both mentally and physically. You can’t be successful in life if you don’t have the energy or the motivation to do so. Caring for yourself also gives you the energy to work harder and achieve your goals; it’ll also keep you alive longer because if you don’t take care of yourself, there’s a good chance you could die early.
So, take care of your mind, body, and soul by working out, eating healthy foods, getting enough sleep, having good hygiene-basically all things that are required for one’s survival! Before you can go further up in life you need to “be healthy” first. This might sound selfish but it isn’t because when you take care of yourself, everything around you will start to fall into place as well.
At the end of the day, you can’t change other people’s opinions-all you can do is live your own life! When people look back on their lives, they won’t regret all of the things that made them happy instead they’ll regret the things they didn’t do. That’s why we should make every day count to make all of our dreams come true before it’s too late because if we don’t, we might just miss out on our best chance at being truly happy. If you have everything that makes you happy in this world then congratulations – you’ve found your worth!!!
