Sense of Self- Worth

There are times that we might feel that we are worthless but always remember that we are all children of God and we are all worthy in His sight. When you are unhappy or depress there are things that will help you change your views. We can look beyond ourselves by:

1. Shifting your attention to others- Instead of dwelling on your weaknesses, look for the good in those around you. Point out those good things to them.

2. Listen to others- Listen to understand, not just so you can prepare a response.

3. Remember: the people around you are probably just as insecure as you are; they are all painfully aware of their weaknesses. So don’t, for a second, think that yours are necessarily worse than anyone else.

This is an article I read from one of my favorite church magazine the" Liahona".

Hello...excellent advice.
If we could all just remember we are all people...equally deserving of respect and acceptance no matter what we sound like, look like, act like ect...
There is almost always a reason for a person to be acting outwardly negative. It may not be you...it may be something other that you.

It only takes a few seconds of time in a patient mindset to derail most negative reactions.

If you act with kindness and understanding....you can do no wrong:)
