I’ll be the first person to admit over the years I’ve got myself into some absolutely ridiculous situations, friendships, relationships…I could go on! Friend after friend would tell me to stop being silly, and to realise my own worth. But what actually is worth? How would you even begin measure worth? And how do you begin to understand your own worth?
‘Ten years from now, make sure you can say that you chose your life, you didn’t settle for it”
I found the quote above on Instagram earlier today, and it really resonated with me. If you settle, you don’t know your worth. And what sort of life would you lead if you forever settled? I know my life would have been so much different if at times I’d just settled. So I’m glad in that respect I did finally did realise my own self-worth.
I think finding your self-worth, is finally realising your limits! With people, jobs, and anything else that has an impact on your happiness! And also knowing your attributes, and becoming aware of anything that makes you unique as a person. Everyone is unique and has their own strengths and weaknesses. And you need to remind yourself that!
I’ve found knowing my limits within that fact I would never dream of letting people treat my as they have done in the past. I don’t think going into detail about times I’ve been doormat or a mug is beneficial to the post. But knowing it happened, and allowing myself to become stronger as a person, has taught me the value of having the right people in my life! I’ll only have people around me that support me! Even at the moment if it’s just helping me with whatever crazy social media/blog related content I’m working on.
I’ve also been quite vocal on social media about how much I’m hating grad life. Which has actually led me to realising my attributes as a candidate. I need to remember that by having a relatively good knowledge of social media, writing my blog and creating new content, and building my knowledge of fashion, fitness, food and beauty…Does make me unique as a candidate! And when I’ve had knockbacks, I need to remember these attributes when I’m questioning my self-worth.
I think not realising your own self-worth will impact your life so much. So it’s finally time to give yourself a bit of self-loving and realise how much of an amazing and special person you really are!
