This is more for me, but maybe some of you need to hear this too. I can only assume that’s why you’re here. I recently discovered my self-worth, attitude and mood is stemming from a place of the idea of “how much can I get done today”.
I had this realization when my partner would ask how my day would went.
If I responded good, I would then immediately list everything I had accomplished today. That made me feel like I put value into my life and the world around me. Which feels pretty good.
If I responded okay or worse, I would then immediately list everything I was able to do and everything I wanted to get done still. I would then vent out my frustrations over this. I felt incomplete and some residual stress about a day like this.
Only by being present and actually listening to the words come out of my mouth was I able to realize I was relying on my mood and attitude based on what I could accomplish. What “value” I brought that day. I had difficulty just sitting on the couch watching TV or simply sitting in silence without my mind racing about something I could be getting done.
Cultivating self worth and self love based solely on the limitless love within our beings is so important to grow beyond this “busybody” culture we have. Seeing our own personal value everyday has to come from that spirit I talked about in my first post. However you make sense of it, whether it’s God, your higher Self, or another divine being; viewing yourself from that overwhelmingly, loving perspective is a great way to be presently valuing yourself.
If you have other ways of how to grow your self-love, self- worth or self- confidence, I encourage you to comment below!
