5 Ways to Boost your Self Worth

Updated: May 21, 2020


Self worth, self esteem and worthiness are feelings that will come and go. As much as you may want to pursue these feelings with the intent to keep them forever, there is no escaping the natural ebb and flow of life.





What does it really mean to feel worthy?


This is one question that I have pondered for years. In my journey of self awareness and human evolution, worthiness has been a central theme.


So many teachers offer their knowledge, opinions and insights on the topic of worthiness, self esteem, and self worth.


After years of my own investigation into self worth, self esteem and worthiness, I have come to one conclusion...worthiness is not a destination it is definitely a journey.


Worthiness is NOT:

  • a condition

  • who you are

  • a reward for good behaviour

  • something that needs to be obtained

  • something you can manipulate

We tend to overcomplicate this subject and create a whole lot of stress for ourselves. Self worth, self esteem and worthiness are feelings. Feelings come and go. As much as we humans want to desperately hold on to the feelings that feel good and want to escape the feelings that feel bad, there is no escaping the natural ebb and flow of life. When we resist what is, what is persists.


When we pursue self worth, self esteem and worthiness as if it is a material thing that we can hold onto, control and accumulate, we are destined to be disappointed. Perhaps even worse than disappointment is the self betrayal that comes along with the pursuit of worthiness.
