We need to ask ourselves honestly:
What do I feel?
Why do I feel that way>?
Have I felt that way before?
What event or person is linked to that feeling?
What have I done about this feeling before?
What can I do about this feeling now?
The way to the highest self worth is by becoming more aware of your own feelings and expressing them in a straightforward, and appropriate manner.
Only you know the person--the inner child--within you.
Your goal is to free the child. to attain that goal, you must be fiercely honest with yourself. You must become open to the language of feelings--your own feelings and those of others.
In doing so, you will become responsible to all aspects of yourself, all dimensions of your own unique person-hood.
You will end the fragmentation of the alienated self, and become a whole integrated person.
You will have the satisfaction of knowing truly who you are. In this process of growth and awareness you will find yourself becoming free of emotional baggage and unfinished business, free of obstructive clutter from the past. You will be able to like yourself without explanation or apology.
You will achieve a sense of high self worth, firmly grounded in self trust and self knowledge.
On paper of course it all sounds so easy. In reality, we are frequently faced with many barriers and pitfalls on our journey to self-esteem. The main obstacles arise from our own behaviors, our own behaviors and compulsions.
In medicating, evading or escaping our emotional pain, we become fugitives from life. Instead of moving toward self fulfillment, we are mired in behavior and unable to grow.
Definition of high self worth: "I want to know and care about myself. I want to feel high energy and a sense of freedom."
The exciting thing is that there is always hope and possibility. Because you can learn to make new choices to change and renew your life.
