Girl Talk--Self Worth

Meet Brooklyn

 Explain what self worth means to you.

 Self worth is the way you view yourself and the difference you feel you can make in the world.

What do you think influences your ability to understand your own worth?

Understanding your own worth comes from understanding the love Heavenly Father has for you & the faith he has in your ability to succeed. Self worth can also come from accepting challenges and overcoming them, setting goals and reaching them! Understanding your self worth comes when we surround ourselves with people who life us up, and choose to lift others up as well.

What are some tips you have for someone struggling with self worth?

Turn to the scriptures and pray. Ask to understand how much you mean to Heavenly Father, and ask Him what you can do to help him! Sit down and make a list about all the things you are good at, ask your mom and best friend to write a list too! Watch uplifting movies & listen to uplifting music. Set goals but be accepting of yourself where you are right now!

Explain what self worth means to you.

Self worth is the knowledge of knowing how incredible you are without seeking approval from the world around you. Self worth is believing that you matter and that you have a purpose in this world and you don't need any one to tell you so. It's about being confident in the unique gifts and talents that you have been blessed with. It's about embracing every single feature you have and not having the desire to look like any one else or impress any one because you know who you are and what you stand for and no one can stop you from fulfilling your purpose. To have self worth, you know that you are worthy of being loved and you have an influence that can affect all those around you. Self worth is the deep inner belief that you are powerful and you have more to offer than you could ever even fathom.

What do you think influences your ability to understand your own worth?

Being in tune with my inner voice and choosing to listen to that influences the ability I have to see my own worth. I know I matter and I know I am a girl born to make a difference but I'll be honest, I have days where I forget this. Those days when I don't feel or believe in my self worth are the days when I am distracted by worldly things such as social media, magazines, or when I start playing the comparison game. When I reach out to God, he reminds me of my worth and my spirit feels it. I have to surround myself with inspiring music, inspiring books, inspiring quotes, scriptures, articles and all things that remind me of who I am, which I know to be a princess, a daughter of God. My worth is defined in this principle and no worldly thing can ever take that away.

What are some tips you have for someone struggling with self worth?

I would suggest journaling. To find your self worth, journal out who you believe you are. After your done with that, write down 10 things you love about yourself. I don't care how long it takes you, you can't get up till you have completed this task! Then hang the list by a mirror, by your bed, in your car - just somewhere you will see it often! You have incredible qualities and it's all about tuning into your inner voice that is routing for you constantly. Sometimes the noises of the world can distract us, journaling is the #1 cure I have found for overcoming self doubt and low self esteem.
