Performance-based self worth is a toxic lie ingrained into us by society, and sometimes more deeply ingrained into us by our caregivers when we were children.
If you haven’t, please seek help in retraining your heart and mind, or surround yourself with people who live as we were meant to live. As human beings. Not human doings.
Etch it into your mind that you have value as a human being, and for who you are. You don’t have to do anything to earn it.
