You can not find your self worth in another person, thing, job, or hobby. It has to come from within yourself. Whatever you do for a job is what you do, not who you are. You need to separate yourself from these things. As adults we are always asking, What do you do for a living? It is difficult to separate ourselves from our jobs, but we must do it.
Some of the items that let you know your self worth are:
- caring for yourself
- respect for others
Learn to appreciate these things to understand you are worth more than the things you do. Some signs that can tell you there is a lack of self-worth are the following. Use these items to help yourself and others explore their self worth:
- lack of communication
- deceptive behaviors
You must go into a relationship valuing yourself if you want someone else to see value in you.
