Hi, it’s Jasmyne with Relate Family Therapy in Centennial, Colorado. Today I want to talk a little bit about worth. How do you find your worth? Where did it come from in the first place? How can you keep it or get more if you need it? Feeling worthy is something that’s really important. It makes you have confidence, helps get you the feeling that you can get through anything, and it really brings you into a place where you can find joy. If you feel that you’re doing things that are worthy and you have worth, you tend to have a better sense of self. Some people lose their worth along the way. They grew up with it; they felt that they were loved and connected with people in their family. They had friendships and peers that helped them recognize what they were worth, but as they grew older, maybe they just sort of lost that in themselves and in their current family dynamic or situations that come up. Some people didn’t have it very much in the beginning. Sometimes parents or other people might not instill a sense of worth into their children, and not help them feel like they’re connected, and create trauma for them. When somebody talks to you now about how you are or what you’re doing, do you personalize it? Do you take it on as your own feelings? Sometimes that can be a good thing. That can inspire you to change, and grow, and shift how you’re thinking. Sometimes it can be to your detriment. Sometimes when placing too much emphasis on what other people think of your worth, you, in turn, feel just generally less worthy. Moving toward a place where you sense your own worth and you can feel value in the way you do things because you’re important tends to be the way that we can find the most worth out of our lives. Don’t allow people to take on too much of your sense of self. Give yourself a break and think about who you are and what you think you’re worth. You’ll find maybe you’re worth more than you thought in the first place.
