Feelings of worthlessness can come at any time in our life’s. But Never Think You Are Worthless. If you are feeling like you aren’t worthy of the things you have in your life, you might be wondering what has happened to your self-confidence.
You are not alone. Sometimes, you might feel hopeless or disappointed with everything. But you have to realize it’s just the way you look at things and the people around us.
When you start to appreciate things around you and smile at others, you will surely receive a smile back from them. My advice is, to try to stay away from people who make you feel sad.
Don’t do things that hurt you. Whenever you feel low, just go out of your room, take a stroll in the park or better in nature, watch your favorite show, talk to people, go to the kitchen and start cooking something for yourself or the family.
And always think positively, just believe that everything happens for a good reason. Instead of whining about one small thing, just move on and face the rest. You are not worthless, nobody is. When you make your family and friends around you smile, they are happy looking at you, you are not really worthless.
If someone else has been telling you that you are not good, just ignore the person and move on. The more you dig into your thoughts about what others have said about you or to you, the less power they have over you, and the more likely you are to be able to create new thoughts about yourself.
Osho, an Inspirational and motivational speaker once said: “Nobody can say anything about you. Whatsoever people say is about themselves. But you become very shaky because you are still clinging to a false center. That false center depends on others, so you are always looking at what people are saying about you. And you are always following other people, you are always trying to satisfy them. You are always trying to be respectable; you are always trying to decorate your ego. This is suicidal. Rather than being disturbed by what others say, you should start looking inside yourself.”
It’s important that you identify where the negative messages are coming from. If you are willing to figure out why you feel that way, you’ll be able to manage those thoughts and find your worth again.
Take some time to consider why you are having these ill-gotten feelings about yourself. And explore where the thoughts are coming from.
If you can just figure out why you are treating yourself so poorly. You can start to introduce more kind actions and thoughts into your day-to-day life.
Start practicing gratitude for what you have in your life. No matter how little you have or how worthless you feel. Always remember there are lots of reasons to be happy about the way your life is right now.
Be an example of what is possible in your own life and start comparing yourself to the person you were yesterday and strive to be better than that person tomorrow.
When you notice that you aren’t having a great day, pay attention to what is going on in your head.
It might just be that you need to replace a thought or try to do something else than what you are doing in order to change your confidence.
This can take time to develop the skills to notice your thoughts, but with practice, you’ll be able to recognize that your lack of self-confidence is just a thought in your head. And you can start doing something about it.
Feeling worthless is a common human experience. But learning to practice mindfulness to allow yourself to question your own thoughts and emotions, allows you to take a step back from the mind and understand that you don’t need to think negatively about yourself.
Taking an objective look at reality will allow you to see that you have a lot of potential and skills, a lot to be grateful for. And you don’t need to believe your own negative thoughts.
Remember: Depression is nothing but our brain pushing us into a pool of negative thoughts. You need to take control of your brain, not vice versa.
