Self-worth is about how you think about yourself and this usually dictates how you live your life and the decisions you make, as well as how you view other people. The more positive you feel about yourself, the higher your self worth will be and the more negative you feel, the lower your self worth will be.
The world we live in, constantly highlights our insecurities and leads us to feel inadequate and unsatisfied. Symptoms of low self worth can include feelings of worthlessness, incompetency and being fearful which can all result in being drawn to destructible relationship and having unrealistic goals. Low self worth may be formed from negative experiences in life, such as a troubled relationship, upbringing or a negative situation in life.
Your self-worth is central to who you are and changing your negative self worth to a positive self worth will mean taking a hard look at yourself and changing regular thoughts and behaviours, which will take time, effort and patience on your part.
