Jurate, that sounds like asking, why would people ever feel bad about themselves. And I think we both know there are plenty of reasons why someone might feel bad.

yes, plenty of reasons to feel good and bad, it's better not to enter the stage when one even does not feel worthy. sometimes it can seem as out of control, but possibly you can suggest what to do so that it wouldn't become this way. it's definitely a good topic, a very serious one.

Well, it comes down to not having a clear understanding of what worth/value really is. Anything that has us feel good has value to it for us. And the better we understand what has value to us, the better we are able to share that value with others also. Self-worth can actually be accumulated by following that inner impulse of doing and collecting what we experience as valuable. Which can be things that make us grow internally and also externally as wealth that we can then share with others. If we feel not worthy, it may be because we feel we do not have anything to offer the world. However our very existence is offering something. Next to that it might be worthwhile figuring out what we find valuable and do and gather more of that. So that we become the valued people we want to be. What are your thoughts?

my thoughts are that Everyone is worthy because of being alive on this planet, so the birth and being human is already a huge value in itself, however because of all complexities in life we know that it can feel different sometimes

Beautiful how you describe that. As I read your text, I feel the struggle of engaging with lives circumstances and how we can lose our connection to our own self-worth this way, by forgetting what is important to us. Seems like we see this similarly, while using different wording.

worth or value? Value is merely nothing more than the feeling of being accepted by your peers and being treated as equals to them regardless of gender, creed or history. Worth is how we seee ourselves and aim to improve upon it. This pandemic has brought out the worst in people, we have become greedy, irresponsible and irrational. I used to feel I had the best job in the world, that was were i recieved my value and worthiness in this society, I worked as a care assistant for the elderly. I watched my residents die, I slept on a floor to protect my parents (and as millennial as it sounds) I was told I was not entitled to a pay rise due being 21 and my age group had now been deemed a flight risk by our director, despite the fact I worked in this area for six years and have studied and trained in all of that time to improve myself.

Hi Emily, for me, the meaning of worth and value is closer than that. But that is not that important. I don't know you that well, but regardless of these circumstances I see you as infinitely able to overcome this. It's okay to feel like a victim but that does not mean you have to be one. Ultimately your feeling of self-worth has everything to do with how your see yourself and what you are willing to receive from your world. You can choose to spend your time focussing on these negative experiences you've had, or you can learn to constructively overcome them. I have no doubt there are better opportunities for you out there if you chose to open up to them.

I suppose there is reason to what you’re saying, I’ll keep your advice in mind and hopefully utilise it to the best of my ability in the near future.

In my work of giving people access to their inner resources, I found that words have a distinct quality of experience they illicit when connected with. Qualities of experience are the qualities we ascribe to what we are experiencing at a moment. So for example, feeling expansive, flowy, full, empty, loved, welcome, productive, these are qualities of experience. Some people say that words are neutral, and we humans give charge to them, either positive or negative. While I agree we can project positive and/or negative qualities on a word, my sense is that they do seem to have their own experiential qualities to them already, possibly transmitted from the noosphere. Then they transmit what we as a collective human race project onto these words. They seem to elicit more homogeneous/universal qualities of experience in different individuals. That is what we have experienced in the collective I play with. What I find remarkable is the quality of 'Work'. 'Work' is actually a core inner quality next to for example Love, Power, Affect and Intellect. It is not something to aim to transcend, aiming to not work anymore. You can if you want to, but 'work' is that quality that has us actually make the effort to make a decision, to consciously choose our values and live by them. 'work' is that quality of not going with every direction of the wind, and instead following our path purposefully and intentionally. Even if we may never need to work again in a near future scenario, I don't think work is going anywhere. Work is virtuous. If we want to feel we keep on growing as individuals work as we know it may change, but work itself isn't going away.

It is necessary to be okay with not knowing to find inner peace. As long as we have to know there is always something to think painfully about.
