Self-worth is an interesting topic. Society would have you believe that it comes from being validated by others. That sense of self-worth is also superficial. It comes from being an acceptable size. Looking a certain way. Driving a nice vehicle. Having a big house. Holding a job that earns a lot of money and affords you lavish vacations. The funny thing is, if that’s how we value ourselves, we’re setting ourselves up for a pretty hollow existence. The truth is self-worth comes from within, hence the “self” in that word.
Self-worth isn’t directly tied to your dress size. It isn’t reflected by your beauty with makeup. It isn’t magnified by the amount of money you have. It isn’t proven with the size of your house or the model of your car. Self-worth is owning your story, accepting who you are, and expressing it no matter who is around. It’s showing others how you want to be treated by treating yourself that way. It’s setting healthy boundaries. It’s making choices that are in alignment with who you are because you know what you deserve. It has nothing to do with entitlement but everything to do with knowing what you’re worthy of.
It has nothing to do with others validating you or deeming you’re deserving and everything to do with you owning your worth. It’s about you treating yourself like the queen (or king) you are. It’s about learning to be true to yourself and not shrinking down to anyone while remaining humble. Do you own your self-worth or do you let others validate you?
Wishing you all that you need to support you in accepting yourself for the queen (or king) you are.
