You know, when I think of particularly, but not exclusively, the women I’ve known and know now, I’d say the biggest problem we’ve all had is low self-worth or poor self-esteem. And yes, some men suffer the same way. At least in the United States.
I’ve also come to believe that low self-esteem supports patriarchy, racism, trashing the planet in the name of profit and more.
Low self-worth means I don’t challenge those in power as much as I might because I’m afraid. Afraid I’ll be laughed at, marginalized, even killed.
The antidote to low self-esteem is learning to really know our own worth, to accept it and even revel in it.
I was delighted when someone sent me this video:
The link to it came from Upworthy – a site worth getting familiar with.
Will developing self-esteem stop the Keystone XL pipeline? End racism? Bring peace to the world? Or even help me lose 20 pounds?
Not directly, but as our real self-worth increases we’re able to speak out more often and more clearly about things we know in our soul need to be changed.
This video is a great tool.
What’s your take on this video and the importance of developing good self-esteem?
Love, blessings and abundance,
