Best Books on Self Worth
Self-worth is about knowing yourself and loving yourself. When you improve your self-worth, your esteem increases and so does your confidence. People will no longer treat you badly because you won’t allow them to. When you know your worth, you will always find the strength to walk away from unfavorable situations.
Boosting your self-worth is, therefore, necessary for everyone who wants to live a fulfilling life. Here are some of the best books on self-worth.
In this book, Brene Brown teaches you not to be so hard on yourself. We often aim to be perfect and are so hard on ourselves when we don’t achieve perfection. The more we are harder on ourselves, the more we feel that we are not worthy. Struggling with perfection translates to struggling with our self-worth.
From this book, I learned how to let go of who I think I am supposed to be and embrace and love who I am. You are imperfect, and that’s alright.
