Being Worthy Of Oneself, Self Worth

Not one drop of my self-worth depends on your acceptance of me. – Quincy Jones

Instead of saying “I’m damaged, I’m broken, I have trust issues” say “I’m healing, I’m rediscovering myself, I’m starting over. Positive self talk. Horacio Jones

In sociology and psychology, self-esteem reflects a person’s overall subjective emotional evaluation of his or her own worth. It is a judgment of oneself as well as an attitude toward the self.

The sense of one’s own value or worth as a person; self-esteem; self-respect.

The importance of knowing what your self worth is and that you are able to see it, is crucially important. Just as important as being able to recognize when others treat you poorly and acting on that with emotional intelligence. This is a scenario of an act of self love. Yes, self love, love.


They say not only their jobs at risk but also their sense of self-worth.


The dictionary defines self-worth as “the sense of one’s own value or worth as a person.” However, there are many ways for a person to value themselves and assess their worth as a human being, and some of these are more psychologically beneficial than others. In this article, we discuss the value of true self-worth, how to build this type of self-worth and why so many of us lack a feeling of worthiness.

I would like to talk about our thoughts. Our mental health. As important as our mental health and our brain is to each one of us, I’d like to get a conversation going on seeing how each one of us responds to all our thoughts.

How do we respond? Do we easily believe them? Or do we try to find any real logical thinking that’s somehow ethical to what caused that thought or what may seem to be logical with why we feel that way or what kind of action any kind of tought encourages?

Self-Worth vs. Self-Esteem

Although, self-worth is often used as a synonym for “self-esteem,” Dr. Lisa Firestone believes that self-worth should be less about measuring yourself based on external actions and more about valuing your inherent worth as a person. In other words, self-worth is about who you are, not about what you do.

Date someone you can be goofy with. Someone who can embrace your silliness, someone who joins you in your absurdity and someone who doesn’t ask you to act in a certain way or speak in a certain manner so you can attract them.

Date someone who is impressed by originality, by authenticity and by how real you are.

Times have changed, and so have the rules regarding the biggest game of your life!

The biggest secret of this world is that each one of us wants to love and be loved. Dating in a relationship is important because it allows you to get to know the person you are in a relationship with, while having a good time. Dating helps to reveal any potential problems you may have if you pursue a more serious relationship with a person, and it sets the foundation for long term relationship. The “old maid” stigma is long gone. Some couples are opting to have families, live together and share a life without tying the knot. Marriage is a beautiful thing, but a long-term, satisfying relationship equals happiness, and is a perfect fit for many. Dating is also healthy as it releases some happy hormones such as endorphins. So let us see the eight new rules of dating in this modern world.

Do you wonder why your relationships always fall apart? What pushes men away? Are your expectations about love too high…or too low? How can you recognize dead-end relationships and stop wasting time on them? What are the signs he’ll never commit? What are the red flags you should never ignore? What factors decide whether a relationship succeeds or fails? What do men want from a relationship? What are the most common relationship mistakes women make? Why do men lose interest? And most importantly, what are the real reasons you can’t find lasting love?

So many people today are aching for love.

Almost every conversation I have about dreams, goals, failure, and success threads back to the essential need for people to feel and experience love. I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir here, yet there is one factor that is often overlooked – or purposefully ignored – by those in constant search of finding that elusive, eternally fulfilling “true love.”

That factor is self-love. This terminology has become so cliché, but there is another half to this basic truth that is perhaps an even more important area of focus: learning to identify and eradicate self-sabotage. Without the latter, self-love will never exist. In addition, it’s pretty much a rhetorical statement to say that a loving relationship will also never last without first mastering self-love.

Most of my adult life, romantic relationships made me unhappy.

Over and over again, I fell in and out of love with men who did not treat me the way I wanted to be treated, and it took me a long time to realize that they were simply treating me with the same amount of love and respect that I had for myself.

I felt underserving and unworthy, so that is what I got. What I chose to believe about myself defined who I was choosing to be and inevitably defined how others perceived my worth.

Julia floated up to me with a big smile, “Guess what?” she said.


“I think I’m in love,” she replied.

“That’s great, but I didn’t even know you were dating anyone.”

“I know! We met yesterday,” she said and flitted away.

You’ve probably guessed that what Julia was feeling was not love. It might eventually turn into love, but it wasn’t love yet. Over the last 20 years, researchers have discovered four distinct biological stages that make up what we refer to as love. These stages are often called different things, but here, we are going to refer to them as attraction, dating, falling in love, and true love. Let’s look at each in more detail.
