“Know your worth, hold your own power, be you.” – Morgan Harper Nichols.
What is your worth? Who determines your self worth? Is it your past, society, family, spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend, how many likes you get on social media or is it yourself? Knowing your worth might be something foreign to you. If you haven’t given it much thought, are wrestling with the concept and experienced feelings of unworthiness, then this is for you. No matter where you find yourself let this be a reminder for you, and if anyone comes to mind while reading this blog, please feel free to share. It might just be the encouragement that someone is looking for!
When I have asked individuals what they like about themselves, the answer is not always easy. We can sometimes believe that we must remain humble and not talk ourselves up or admire the qualities that each of us uniquely brings to the table. A healthy view of ourselves is vital if we are going to be the best version of ourselves and give the best to those we love.
How often have you second-guessed your worth? I certainly have, and how miserable I had become when I did. It not only affected my self-esteem but the choices that I made. Our worth can be tested when we feel others don’t appreciate our value. We can find ourselves lowering our value to become affordable so that people would buy in. Mark Aaron, the vice president of investor relations at Tiffany, quoted, “Tiffany does not conduct price promotional sales on Black Friday or any other day”. Is this true for you also? (Insert your name here) does not conduct price promotional sales on this day or any day. You better believe it and say it out loud if you must!
I encourage you to draw a line in the sand and not compromise your worth and value anymore if you find yourself doing so. If no one has told you lately, let this be it. You are one of a kind, and there has never been anyone like you, nor will there ever be. Start to remove those discount tags. I would love to hear from you! Until next time take care. C
