My biggest life-learning: Know your self-worth 😇


Let me tell you…


What made me successful when I was young was holding me back when I was older.


When I was young, I never took myself too seriously.


I could make a joke about myself 😅


I could get along with the guys, and if they made some joke about women or something else, I didn't care.


I would also make a joke :-))


I was very easygoing and a pleasant person to be around.


Not praising myself, but I was like that.


I would bring in the coffee for everyone.


And I also was a hard worker.


If some people work 100%, I would work 150%. So I would also produce a lot of results.


And that’s what made me successful in my early years.


But then I found out that the same thing that was making me successful when I was young was holding me back when I was growing.


Because people saw me too much as a friendly person, they threw lots of stuff at me, and I would get it done.


They knew that I, in a way, made their life easier.


I made other people grow. I improved their careers.


But I didn't have this sense of self-worth and the ability to set boundaries.


When I was making fun of myself, I didn't realize it was holding me back.


So my change was getting to know and becoming vulnerable about what was inside me and embracing it.


I'm still a kind person, and I care for others.


But I also have self-worth now.


I can say no ❌


I can make a boundary when something is going against my value system, and I can walk with integrity in a different way than I did when I was young.


So I don't need to degrade myself to be kind.


What was your biggest life-learning?
