Baltasar Gracian said, “Respect yourself if you would have others respect you.”

Respect everything about yourself and people will respect you. Your self-worth is your worth. It is how you treat yourself.

To build your self-worth, do not let people put you down, no matter who they are. Don’t let that happen to you. If you do, you are telling yourself, ‘you are not good enough.’

To build your self-worth, you have to feel good about yourself. It is important. Because if you don’t feel good about yourself, you can’t really do well in life.

Another way you can build your self-worth is to stop putting yourself down. Don’t put yourself down, and do not allow people to put you down. Do not compare yourself to others. They have their lives. You have yours. So live your own life.

Tell yourself, “I’m good enough.” If you don’t celebrate yourself, no one will celebrate you. Do it always.

No matter what you are doing, try to be your best, do your best, and earn the best. Don’t strive to be perfect. Just do your best.

Hang out with people who celebrate you, not those who will put you down. Associate yourself with friends who want you to succeed in life. Don’t be around negative people- people who will question your worth. They will drag down your self-worth.

You can also raise your self-worth by following your passion. Do what you are passionate about. Don’t start anything that you cannot finish. It feels good to start something and complete it. It boosts your self-worth.

Finally, you can build your self-worth by learning how to forgive yourself. No one is perfect. If you do anything wrong, don’t beat yourself up. Forgive yourself. Love yourself. Celebrate yourself and the people around you. Focus on positive things, and positive things will come to you.

Don’t put yourself down. You are unique. Celebrate yourself. Love yourself. Forgive yourself. Move on.

Why We Should Forgive Ourselves And Others

“The moment you decide to forgive and let your negative feelings melt away, you are on the road to freedom.”- Jen Sincero

We need to forgive ourselves and others. Forgiveness is freedom. Forgiveness is not about them, it’s about you.

If you want to be free, forgive people who have wronged you. Don’t walk around with guilt, shame, or your mistakes. Beating yourself up will not change anything, it will make you feel terrible about yourself.

In her book You are a BADASS: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness And Start Living an Awesome Life, Jen Sincero writes, “Forgiveness is all about taking care of you, not the person you need to forgive. It’s about putting your desire to feel good before your desire to be right. It’s about taking responsibility for your own happiness instead of pretending it’s in somebody else’s hands. It’s about owning your power by giving all your anger, resentment, and hurt the heave-ho.”

Forgiveness is not really about them, it is about you. It is taking care of yourself- your health, your happiness, your life, and your future.

Forgiveness gives us freedom to do whatever we want. In her book 52 Simple Ways to Encourage Others, Catherine E. Rollins writes, “Our forgiving the person who has wronged us accomplishes two things simultaneously. It removes us from standing in the way of the other person’s confrontation of himself and his actions…. Forgiving others free us from the negative impact of hatred on our souls, emotions, and bodies.”

Forgive the person who has wronged you, so that you can move on. If you don’t forgive, you cannot move on. You need to move on in your life.

No matter what people have done to you, forgive them. Don’t beat yourself up. Let it go. According to Ernest Kurtz and Katherine Ketcham, “‘Letting go” involves a breaking down of resistance to reality, a surrender of the demand for certitude; it can be pictured as a letting fall of fetters, a shucking of bonds of fear and possessiveness now experienced as no longer binding.”

Forgive yourself, forgive others, and you are on your way to success. You can do it!
