“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” – Sharon Salzberg
Lack of self-acceptance and low self-worth hamper our potential. The best solution is friendship with yourself but there is a long way to go before that happens. As a rule, none of us feel worthless at all times, but only in certain situations.
So it is worth learning how to give yourself, or strictly speaking your nervous system, time to cool down and wake up to rational thinking.

Understanding Self Worth Quotes
Self-worth may be too low or, sometimes, to high. Too low causes problems with adaptation to the environment. People with this kind of thinking perceive themselves as inferior, which makes them feel bad about themselves and other people.
Too high self-worth makes them behave arrogantly, seeing other people as inferior to themselves.
Low self-esteem is thinking that you are worse than you are. Using a certain type of criteria (level of knowledge, social status, amount of money earned, external appearance) a person with low self-worth evaluates everyone around as better than them.
A characteristic feature of such people is a large number of beliefs starting with the word “I should”.
How do you define self-worth?
Self-worth is a component of self-esteem. When you think about yourself positively or negatively you will be able to distinguish between low and high self-esteem.
Whether these judgments are true and accurate causes us to have an over-estimation (overestimation of our abilities), under-estimation (when we underestimate our merits and successes), and adequacy (the evaluation of our merits is reflected in what we do).
Self-worth, i.e. positive overall self-esteem is expressed in feeling positive emotions towards oneself (e.g. pride, self-satisfaction) and positive evaluation of oneself in various aspects (as an intelligent person, who keeps resolutions, with a strong will, etc.).
It is worth working on self-worth as people with a positive attitude to themselves feel happier, are healthier, sleep better, can perform more difficult tasks for longer, have more confidence in themselves, are more accepted by others, and are less susceptible to environmental pressure.
Low self-worth, on the other hand, makes people more anxious, depressive, and pessimistic, they tend to fail, they don’t trust themselves but have a weaker immune system.
It is worth knowing that self-worth works in a vicious circle: people with low self-worth perceive the world and their chances in it in a less optimistic way; it discourages them from making an effort which, in turn, lowers their performance and ultimately strengthens their sense of low value.
Poorly recognized self-worth can be the result of too little self-knowledge and insufficient self-analysis. A person with high self-worth is not superior to others. On the contrary – these are signs of lack of self-worth supplemented by aggression and domination.
How do you practice self-worth?
When we practice our self worth we answer the questions: “Who am I?”, “How do I feel about it?” Low self-worth means negative self-esteem, and it results in a bad feeling. How do you change that?
We usually misjudge ourselves when our sensitivity has been hurt. Someone criticized us, insulted us, embarrassed us, scared us, blamed us. And now we, in a way that is often subconscious, are still feeling bad about it because we have taken someone else’s opinion or someone’s emotions as our own.
Now we act automatically, reproducing old situations because displaced emotions demand to be released. If we don’t take it up, we act self-destructively. Working on suppressed emotions requires targeted internal work, often a psychotherapist is needed. What can you do by yourself?
Take care of yourself
Do what’s good for you. If you feel you need the company of people, go out to them. If you’re overweight, take care of your diet. When you’re afraid of something, find out why it’s happening and take up the challenge.
Identify low self-esteem triggers
Think about who criticized you and when and remember how painful it was for you. Then answer the question of what consequences you are suffering today. What are you not doing because of that?
Change your behavior
When you feel that low self-worth is holding you back or pushing you into behaviors that are not good for you (for example avoiding people or claiming in relationships) – stop.
Take advantage of relaxation, meditation, and breathing exercises. They will distract you from your feelings, which are already out of date. You will stop acting under the influence of old impulses. Now you can take on new behaviors.
Develop new skills
If, for example, you are very afraid of loneliness because someone has left you once, exercise the pleasure of being alone. This can hurt at first, but then you will feel empowered. If you are afraid of the dark, turn off the light and you will see that it is not so dark.
Express your feelings
You’re afraid of it. Tell me about it. An honest, clear confession, for example: “I’m shy” or “I’m afraid I won’t succeed, because it’s new to me,” will open the hearts of those who want to help you.
There’s always an option
Beliefs of the type: “This is the end”, or – or, “there is no way out” usually have no foundation. There is always a third way out, and often it is the one that is best for us. Practice flexibility, think in shades of grey.
To those who limit you, to those with whom you disagree. Say “no” to the falsehood around you, to the abuses, to what you want to say goodbye to.
Stay in touch with your body
All emotions are in the body. Through the practice, you can decipher and use them creatively. Anger will push you into action and sadness will open you to joy.
Open your senses to what’s coming to you. People’s words, sentences read in books. Study what you feel about them. What flirts with you is important.
How do you gain self -worth?
Gaining self-worth depends on such factors as early childhood experiences, the type of communication that prevailed in the family of origin, relations with siblings or the way we function in the peer group.
A good insight into thoughts and feelings about yourself can be the first clue to what to do and what to avoid. By the analysis of such an internal monologue, you can wonder what you are focusing on, whether you are analyzing your possibilities or limitations?
The way of thinking has a significant impact on emotional states, body feelings and as a result actions and reactions. When analyzing your strengths we need to have evidence that they exist.
Knowledge about them is best based on real experiences, feedback from others, analysis of reactions to crises, and past failures. Building an adequate sense of self-worth is the basis for the satisfactory implementation of life’s roles.
Why is self-worth important?
Self-worth involves the ability to act in a way that is consistent with us, with our needs and values, and not one that will force us to adapt to others. It makes it much easier to take care of one’s needs and helps to boldly ask others to respect those needs. High self-worth helps build authentic relationships with people (based on mutual respect).
When self-worth is not strong enough, we compare ourselves to others, look for weaker qualities and often establish relationships with those people who we think are weaker than us.
A person with a healthy sense of self-worth knows and believes that each person is valuable and each person is great in his or her way, thus building lasting and good relationships with others based on mutual respect.
Self-worth shows that building a good relationship is a basic condition for us to feel important and valuable. It also allows us to be persistent in the actions taken, to deal effectively with difficulties and to increase our resistance to failures.
Believe in Your Own Strength
Make yourself and your dreams come true, believe in your abilities, make a list of your qualities, and read it every morning. Listen and read others’ self-worth quotes so that you will know what goal you should pursue in your life. Surround yourself with happy people and entertain them yourself, then you will surely strengthen your sense of value and believe in the strength you have in yourself.
You won’t spend as much time with anyone in your life as with yourself. It is therefore worth taking care of your relationship with yourself and your opinion about yourself.
Do not forget that self-worth can be modified and amplified with the appropriate effort. Systematicity is key – you don’t have to convince anyone about it.
