On April 7th,
a self-worth session was held by Mariam Zaki, psychologist MA, Mental health counseling, University of Central Florida.
We all experience moments of self-doubt and uncertainty. It’s part of being human. Even the most confident and happy people have moments where they feel lost and unsure.
Acknowledging your self-doubt can be the first step to conquering how you feel about yourself daily and placing those negative thoughts about yourself at bay.
To know your worth, you need to stop comparing yourself to other people and overthinking every move you take. In other words, you need to challenge your critical inner voice every single day. Yes, building self-esteem can be difficult, though rewarding journey in many ways that will benefit you in the long run.
Adding meaning to your life, by taking part in activities that you feel are important, is another great way to build self-worth. Helping others, for example, offers a huge boost to your sense of self-worth. Generosity is good for you, both physically and mentally; studies now show that volunteering has a very positive effect on how people feel about themselves.
Remember that imperfection is part of the human experience and something we all share.
