As women, we often struggle with feeling worthy and valuable. Society puts a lot of pressure on us to be perfect, and we compare ourselves to others constantly.
This can lead to us having a lack of confidence and a feeling of being unworthy. However, when our brains get the memo that we were BORN worthy, that our creator gave us worth at birth we can start to transform our lives in incredible ways.
- Understanding Your Own Worth
How does one do that? By understanding that you are valuable just as you are, regardless of what others may think or say. It means recognizing your strengths and weaknesses and embracing them as part of who you are. It also means having a strong sense of self and being comfortable in your own skin. You were created to be YOU, not someone else that you follow online. YOU. You were given the exact skin, hair, body, beliefs, talents for a reason. Are you using what you were born with? If not, travel back in time and remember who you were born to be before you became who you thought to needed to become to fit in, be loved etc ... Before you had your essence conditioned out of you. What did you LOVE doing as a kid? What are most complimented for as an adult? Seek and you shall find.

- How to Build Your Self-Worth and Self-Love
Building your self-worth and self-love is a journey, but it's one that is worth taking. Start incorporating the following and watch your shoulders drop from your ear and watch you get excited to greet the women staring back at you in the mirror.
Practice self-care: Take care of yourself physically, emotionally, and mentally. This means getting enough sleep, eating healthy, and engaging in activities that make you feel good. Dance, move, sing, play! Get in touch with that little inner you. Remember when you would imagine a magical world and it just took you away? Go there. Imagination creates our reality.
Practice self-compassion: Be kind to yourself and treat yourself as you would treat a friend. Instead of criticizing yourself, practice self-compassion and speak to yourself with kindness and understanding. Would you yell at a child who was sad and crying? Of course not, but that's what you're doing to your own inner child when you aren't exercising self compassion.
Surround yourself with positivity: Surround yourself with people who lift you up and support your journey to self-love and self-worth. Avoid people who bring you down or make you feel unworthy. This is one of the shortcuts to increasing our worth - stop entertaining things that make us feel unworthy.
Practice gratitude: Take time each day to appreciate the things in your life that bring you joy and happiness. This can help shift your focus from negative thoughts to positive ones.
Remember that your worth is not determined by external factors such as your job, relationship status, or material possessions. Your worth is inherent and is based on who you are as a person. YOU WERE BORN WORTHY GIRL!
If you forget, it's okay - just come back and re-read this again. Our brains learn through repetition. Be gentle you'll be meeting parts of yourself you've been at war with your entire life.
