The foundation of my life is built from the inside out.
I consciously live my life upon a strong, enduring, and independent foundation of self-worth.
We can appreciate the opinions others have of us- both good and not so -but the opinions we have of ourselves are those from which we must cultivate our self-worth. Valuing and validating ourselves based on the feedback of the external world makes for an unsteady, temporary and dependent foundation of self-worth. In truth, the worth found in the feedback of others or the world is not self-worth at all, it is external-worth. Self-worth is inner-worth, a sense of value that originates from within the self. What the world thinks can support our feelings of self-worth but is an artificial and unstable source for them.
