Real Self Worth
Real self worth
I would like to suggest that understanding one’s inherent self-worth—knowing what specific value you bring to the larger community—is essential in today’s complexity. You can praise Isabella from morning to night, tell her she is Daddy’s darling and beautiful. This in no way prepares her one small self to feels as if she matters and can make a difference in a world teeming with six billion people. On the other hand, if Isabella knows her gifts and talents--that she’s quite talented at helping others resolve fights; that her sense of humor can make a crying friend heal; that she can take herself from frustration to wonder by walking around; that playing the piano can melt her anger into honey; that she is very talented in innovative thinking which will help her design herself and others out of scary situations—then she feels as if she is unique and belongs to a world that needs her.
