Dr. Sebi knew that learning to value yourself is one of the most worthwhile things you can do.
Self-value helped Dr. Sebi overcome opposition and controversy, standing firm in his mission to heal.
Let’s learn to treat ourselves like we really deserve.
What is Self-Value?
Your level of self-value determines the actions you take to help or harm yourself. It also determines how you think others should behave towards you. When we value ourselves, we notice the positive qualities we offer others, like kindness, honesty, and respect, and feel that we deserve to be treated the same way.
Sadly, low self-value is ‘normal’ in our modern world. People work jobs they hate or stay in bad relationships because they don’t value themselves highly enough. While it’s normal that we live in a society of people who undervalue themselves, it’s not natural. We can collectively aim higher and learn to value ourselves much more.
People who have low self-value, or derive it from external factors (looks, popularity, income, etc.) experience more anger, stress, and conflict in their relationships. They have a greater risk of depression, substance abuse, and eating disorders.
Low self-value makes us accept poor treatment from others (including people in authority who represent us) and poor habits from ourselves. Fortunately, self-value is like a muscle you just need to learn to stretch. Here are some signs you need to work on your self-value muscle:
Needing others to feel happy or alive.
Spending time with people who bring you down.
Feeling there’s nothing worth living for.
Having critical and negative internal dialogue.
Being a pushover (not standing up to others.)
Always putting other people’s needs first.
Assuming arguments are always your fault.
Not having a strong sense of identity.
Not knowing what you want from life.
Accepting less than you deserve (e.g. pay).
Being trapped in destructive or addictive behaviors.
Depressed and unable to take care of basic needs.
