You are born with an innate sense of self-worth that you build on and develop as you grow. We’re going to explore ways to build your self-worth, below are 10 affirmations that you can start using today.
Know and Understand Yourself
Knowing who you are, has nothing to do with what clothes you wear, the things you own, the car you drive, or how much money you make. Not about your education or lack thereof, or whether you are in a relationship or not.
It’s ABOUT knowing what makes you uniquely and undeniably you. What do you love? What don’t you? What do you enjoy? What types of things and experiences do you value?
A great question to ask is; “If everything I own and loved, was taken from me tomorrow, and all I had was myself, what would I be able to offer the world?“
Accept Yourself As-Is
Accepting yourself means valuing who you are in the present moment. Our pasts do not define us, they shape us. Keeping in mind we are NOT our past failures, we learn and grow from our mistakes.
Being able to accept yourself means no judgments, no looking back, and no looking forward. Just here and now, and who you are at this moment. Including the good and the bad, the perfect and the flawed parts of yourself.
Unconditionally Love Yourself
A very large part of increasing your self-worth is learning to love and care for yourself. Practice positive and compassionate thinking about yourself, and towards yourself.
This is where you let go of that negative self-talk, self-loathing, and negative thinking patterns. Everybody – each and every one of us here on earth – has flaws and faults. It helps make up who we are as individuals. Keeping in mind this does not negate our value.
This is where you begin to truly realize that everything around you; people, places, experiences – have no bearing on who you are.
External things no longer serve you, you must learn to let them go. They are no longer part of your identity. You’ve grown a much stronger sense of self that no longer relies on these external things.
Take Full Responsibility
You are in control! It is you and only you who are responsible for your life experiences, your problems, and your unique circumstances. You have the ultimate power to control your entire world.
