Chapter 7, Page 3, Book 18

Self worth comes from one thing - thinking that you are worthy.

Wayne Dyer

 Accept and acknowledge your own worth

The best way to avoid falling prey to the opinions of others is to realize that other people’s opinions are just that - opinions.  Regardless of how great or terrible they think you are, that’s their opinion.  Your true self worth comes from within.

Travis Bradberry

We don’t always like what we see when we look in the mirror, but we really do need to recognize our strengths and focus on making life better.

When you think about it, the good Lord created us all for a purpose and only wants us to succeed.    We are all have worth and should be happy in the knowledge that God doesn’t make mistakes.  

We need to accept ourselves for who we are not what others expect of us.  It’s easy and quite common to allow others thoughts and opinions dictate our own self approval.  Instead of allowing your approval be the decision of others, make it your own.

Self esteem is the way in which you think and feel about yourself.  Acknowledge your success and give yourself a pat on the back for your accomplishments.

You are always with yourself, so you might as well enjoy the company.

Diane Von Furstenberg

It's important to live the life you love.

Good advice. On the other hand, I think humility is very important. Do you think a person can embrace both self-esteem and/or self-love... and still be humble...?

It is good to have a healthy dose of self esteem and self worth. I think we can do that without being too proud and keep ourselves humble. We just need to continue to give credit for our accomplishments and achievements and talents to God :)

I think you have to self talk yourself into believing you are worthy. Sorry I have been out of town - but I am back. Love, sandie

Gosh, I wish I'd seen this as a child … constantly altering who I was to gain others' approval. Nevertheless - no matter one's age -- this message is powerful.

You done good, and that is a very timely entry. Some of us 'curse, fuss and kick our selves to often methinks, but old habits are hard to break.
I liked the entry.

Jilda saw a video on Facebook about the problem with perfection. It was beautiful and it would do a lot of people good to see it.
