There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”Anaïs Nin
Self Worth – Positive Psychology describes it as at core of our very selves—our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are intimately tied into how we view our worthiness and value as human beings.!
And yet, how often to we look to others to validate our worth? How often do we allow criticism or our own regret for our behaviours, which are only a part of us, affect the way we feel about ourselves at our core? As we explore our self health, by strengthening and expanding our connections to ourselves, we will need to hold ourselves as being worthy of our love.
