We are relearning and realizing self-worth together.
Worth-conscious theory: Understanding the role of birthright self-worth and application to clinical practice. By Dawna Daigneault and Chris Brown. https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/09593543221135559
Worth-Conscious Theory concerns human worth and requires individuals to recognize and acknowledge their value and significance (i.e., worth) even when smaller and larger systems fail to support them in affirming and repairing their worth. Self-worth is a birthright for all individuals and a foundation for building the four pillars of self-worth.
What does it mean to be self-conscious?
1. It allows thoughts and feelings about not being enough to take over instead of being okay in the present moment.
2. It is a sense of inadequacy that we think others will notice and then think less of us.
3. It is often an unfair self-evaluation based on limitations without equal reference to strengths.
To be more purposefully conscious, we can focus on our self-worth as an unalterable fact of our existence--we can be worth-conscious.
