Self-Worth At Work
Positive feedback is great. We all want to hear we are doing a good job.
But, I have learned (the hard way) that if you don't start from a place of self-worth and only wait for others to tell you your value, you will never be truly happy or fulfilled.
Not only do people, particularly managers, not give positive feedback enough, but they often don't give it in the moment when you need it most. When you receive positive feedback from them, it is usually after you have achieved the task or gotten through the tough part and have come out on the other side.
What you really need to hear is that you are enough and of value when you are in the thick of it. You need to hear you will solve the problem. You need to hear that you have what it takes to make it through. And, that my friends, comes from within.
Love yourself. Now more than ever.
