The Importance of Self Worth
What I am seeing more and more in my consulting room is people presenting with exceptionally low feelings of self worth. With so many scenarios we find ourselves in where we are selling ourselves, dating websites, new jobs etc we are placing ourselves out there for the judgement of others. Or at least that’s how it feels.
I spend a great deal of time with clients endeavouring to enhance their feelings of self worth coming from within rather than without. To feel an intrinsic sense of worth, you become powerful. If your value comes from within, no one and I mean no one can take this away from you.
People who look for external validation as their primary drive puts themselves at the risk of having this validation taken away from them through no fault of their own. If a person exudes self worth, they present themselves in a very attractive position be that for a new job or new relationship.
This is of course not to say that the opinion of others do not count for anything, of course it does. However, what is truly important is that we feel strong enough in ourselves to handle anything that life has to offer for good or for bad.
