Do you ever feel like you’re not enough?

"If your self-worth seems to rise and fall according to what other people think, you’re not alone. But you can challenge this mindset and find a new way of valuing yourself"

The above article was a great read. It discusses how people attach to themselves their idea of 'value' or self-validation based upon their occupation --- or how others may judge and view them based upon their occupation. However, the concept could be applied to other ideas as well.

I found it particularly interesting because I find myself (and many of my co-workers) define ourselves as our job(s) - but we are so much more than just what we do for a pay check. Again, that same idea can be applied to so many more avenues of thinking. "We are so much more than just . . . " and we sometimes need to remind ourselves of what extraordinary people we are all capable of being.

    We're all unique and our differences make life more interesting. You're right we're more than the job title. Why do we need titles to define us. I'm,me with my experiences and you are awesome because it's you.

    The fact that you’re even thinking on or considering this tells me you know your worth. Who we are is defined by our heart. How we express who we are speaks more loudly than anything we say. In my former life, I was an elementary educator. My days in the classroom teaching fifth graders are over, yet teacher me lives on! Ha. Occupational hazard, maybe?! Plenty to think on here, I love that. Thank you.

    Good point, and it reminds me of the saying: " You can't judge a book by its cover." Looking at the exterior of anyone can rob them and us of seeing the real person on the inside. A person's job title reveals limited information just as the bathroom scale does. I would rather have a friend who is loyal and genuine (real people) .... who hails garbage than I would a highly prominent person who pretended to be my friend. Lots to think about. Good blog!
