Many people tend to suffer in silence, public smiles private tear (a novel by Helen Van Slyke and James Edward)
Many people have been made to feel worthless and the end result is never good.
When someone feels worthless , they feel as if they are insignificant and have nothing valuable to offer the world.
Often people hide feeling of anxiety, depression, worthlessness. At times such feeling are not self imposed.
Contrary to the popular saying, sticks and stones may break my bones… words really do hurt. Words can strip ones self worth. Negative words never contribute to positive transform. I’d say “the self” is a social construct and some people tend to take that, internalize it to become the being that they are.
Everyone worries about their standing in the world, whether professional, social, or in terms of looks. How do people usually judge where they stand in something? They look to other people.
At the same time should one/ anyone live a life governed by people think or say about them. The anxiety, depression, feeling of worthlessness can be triggered by people’s perceptions.
When you spend time wondering how other people perceive you, you create stories that are often far from the reality. Hence ending up questioning yourself worth.
You are valuable for who you are, not for what you do.
You don’t need to prove to anyone that you are amazing,know your self worth. Your self worth is not determined by anyone but yourself.
NOTE TO SELF
#Don’t live a life of trying to prove you worth to anyone. If they don’t get you they just don’t.
