How To Destress With Self-Worth

How to destress with self-worth is what I am rambling bout today.  Why, why, why would I ramble about destressing with self-worth?  Because everything we think, every feeling we feel, and every action we take is based on our level of self-worth.

Hello there my friend.  How the heck are you?  How was your 4th of July?  I hope you had the best of time.  Mine was super duper splendid.

So, what do you know about self-worth?  What do you know about your self-worth?

If you are a goal setter, and tend to accomplish your goals, chances are you have pretty high self-worth.

If you depend on others for things like money, food, or substances because you do not believe that you can do it for yourself, chances are your self-worth is scraping the bottom of the barrel.

I do not say that to be unkind, I say that to awaken anyone to awareness because when people come to me for help, but are unwilling to help themselves, and are full of nothing but excuses why they can't do things to help themselves, they are suffering from very very low self-worth.

Many people have no idea they suffer from low self-worth because their mind is on auto-pilot, thinking about all the fearful things in the future, and thinking about all the wrong that has been done to them in the past.

Fear of the future, and being offended from the past, creates some serious stress.  Not only does it create stress, it creates anxiety, and depression.  Anxiety and depression are the most prevalent negative emotions in our society.  Anxiety, and depression, cause addiction, anger, debt, health problems, hoarding, and obesity.

So, what does one do when they have low self-worth?  Excellent question!  The best thing we can do is take responsibility for our thoughts, feelings, and actions.  The greatest way to do this is to be conscious of our thoughts.  

Once a person becomes conscious of their thoughts, they can turn their thoughts around, especially if they are negative.  

So the first step is becoming conscious of your thoughts.

The second step is noticing the negative self-talk like, "it's too hard," "I can't do this," "I am not good enough, smart enough, slim enough, or good looking enough."  

The third step is to discover how valuable you really are.

The fourth step is to constantly work on the thoughts of self value.

A way that you can accomplish the first three steps is by sitting quietly in an uninterrupted environment, relaxed, with your eyes closed, and say to yourself, "God loves me."  This may sound silly but first you will notice if you believe it or not, and if you cannot believe it, then your self worth is truly suffering because God truly loves everyone.  Second, as you say this you will notice that if you do not believe it, you will come up with reasons why he doesn't love you, which covers the first and second steps.  

Now, in order to discover how valuable you really are you can either keep saying that God loves you until you believe it, or you can make a list of all your accomplishments so far in life, and make a list of all the great things you do, and have done.  If you are unable to do this, then we may conclude your self-worth truly suffers especially if you are unwilling to do a simple exercise like this for you.  

You are so very important, you are so very valuable, you are the most important person in your life, and you will make or break you.  

You can make you!  

You can make you magnificent!  

You can do anything you set your heart to, you just have to set your heart to doing it. 

God loves you, he knows your trials, he knows you individually, and you are his child.  

In order to accomplish step four, you could work on your self-worth constantly, every day, every week, and all month long.
