Poor self-worth in a person can be like a tree with no roots. It has no bases and can only sprout false roots in a person’s mind. But fighting to maintain a positive self-image is a challenge for many people. The constant anxiety about our perceived insecurities that flows through the mind daily is how some of us live our lives.
We have to work to ground ourselves in true perspectives and not our insecurities. We have to overcome those thoughts and feelings that cause us to behave in an insecure manner by challenging our thoughts and learning to see ourselves differently. What we think about ourselves will determine how we will or will not respond to events in our lives. Listen, if you believe that you are incapable or inferior, then you will feel and act as if you are inferior. Feelings of negative self-worth can make one feel and think less than worthy of life itself. A negative self-image can lead to feelings of self-hate and impact a person’s ability to enjoy love and happiness.
How? How can we build self-worth after seeing ourselves as worthless for years and/or even decades? Answer, we have to change our Core Beliefs or the way that we see ourselves. What are you saying and thinking about your self? Are those thoughts positive? Any time you find your self thinking negatively, challenge those thoughts. Write down your positive factors. Paste them on your mirror, your walls, in the car, at the office. Put them anywhere to remind you just how special you are. We have to redefine our core beliefs and ground our feelings in balanced thoughts and feelings.
