Self-worth is an important part of our lives, and it can be a challenge to find ways to increase it. It’s often easier to focus on external successes than on how we feel about ourselves internally. However, it’s important to recognize that our own feelings of self-worth can have a huge impact on our overall happiness and well-being. Some people with low self-worth may be depressed, while others may be anxious. There are also those who pursue perfectionism and live in fear of what other people might think.
The fascinating thing about self-worth is that it varies throughout our lives depending on what is going on.
