Mindfulness: Self-Worth

As we think about our self-worth, we ponder over what we are not. As these negative thoughts linger, we visually see ourselves as worthless, penniless, anti-social, unloved by self and others, and a menace to society. We can overcome our preconceived meditated self-image of defeat placed upon ourselves or inflicted upon us by loved ones, neighbors, co-workers, customers, supervisors, and strangers.
We must learn in God’s grace how to overcome negative criticism by not taking every word, action or deed towards us personally. This means engaging in ongoing self-acceptance of who we are, what we believe about self, and being willing to change unhealthy words, actions and deeds in God’s grace.
To overcome self-criticism: We must know our strength and weaknesses. We must have a game plan to deal with people, situations and things that we know can get up under our skin. We must forgive ourselves when we do not measure up to our expectation. We must forgive others.
To overcome others’ criticism of us: We must attentively listen to their opinions. We must ask ourselves is there some truth in what is being said? If it is, then prayerfully seek ways to change. If what they are saying stems from jealousy, bitterness, or gossip, pray for them and do not take what they are saying personally.
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).
