I struggled with self-worth without even knowing it.
It would show itself in ways of self-abandonment and self-doubt, needing external validation… even unknowingly accept mistreatment …it was a generational thing of unconscious behaviors and certainly an unconscious trauma response to being a diaspora immigrant child… being so different to my surroundings
There is so much that can be the root cause for not feeling deserving of all the good things in life, be they small or be they big.
This journey is individual yet directly tied in with how we relate to the world.
When we have self-worth and feel deserving of the good, we strive for better things and don’t settle sub par. Above all, we can be true to ourselves and have more ambition, believe in greater possibilities.
A few key symptoms of low self worth:
Lack of self-love
Not trusting own instincts
Can’t see the inherent value and worth in anything
Wound to personal value system leading to poor boundaries and abuse, loss of power
Recipient or instigator of undervaluing behavior
Not knowing where one stands in the world
Wounding to material security and prosperity
Low ceiling mentality
Knowing that you’re inherently deserving and worthy
Choosing good for yourself
Valuing yourself and anything in life
Clear values and boundaries
Prosperity and abundance mentality
Feeling good about yourself
Naturally at ease with physicality
See the Beauty in oneself, nature and life
Connected to gut instinct
A powerful sensitive emotional nature
Seeing all possibilities
It always comes right back to each one of us: only we ourselves can give us self-worth. The rest is a mere ripple effect of that inner state.
