Hey guys! Welcome back. I know as a young adult I have struggled a lot with identity and self-worth. It’s something that I have been working on endlessly these past few years, but it’s really difficult because we live in a society that tries to tell us what we should be instead of celebrating us for who we already are. So I thought I would take today to share with you some things that I have learned over these past few years and hopefully it helps you in some way. Here are five things I think every young woman should know.
1. Your Worth.
Who you are, what you value, and the person you want to be are all tied into your worth. It’s not about what you look like, what kind of career you have, or even how much money you have. Your worth is not tied to a monetary value. Your worth is tied into the person you decide to be each day when you wake up and what you do with what you are given. It’s easy to get caught up in comparison and looking at what everyone else has and what they are doing, but your worth is something that is unique to you.
2. Everyone’s life looks different.
Just like no two snowflakes look the same, no two lives look the same. So regardless of what someone else is doing, what they have, or at what point they are in their life, it’s not yours. Their story is not the same as yours. You have faced your own battles, survived your own struggles, and won your own successes. Own that and own the person you have become. No one else can live the life you are living because it was created especially for you. So always know that your life won’t always look like someone else’s.
3. How you want to spend your time.
We all have a very limited amount of time, so it’s really important to make sure that we are using it to the best of our abilities. I’m not saying you have to micromanage your time and account for every single moment, but it would be a good idea to make sure you know what is important to you and how you want to spend your time. It just helps make sure you are getting the most out of the time you are given and that you use it to your advantage as often as you can. It can only help you.
4. Your style.
Everyone has a different style. Some dress to look nice, some dress to be comfortable, and others dress just to be dressed. Regardless, most of us have some sort of style that we have or that we really love. So I think it’s really important to know and understand what that style is because it ultimately is an expression of who we are and what we value. So whether you dress to look super nice everyday or you prefer a more casual and comfortable approach, know what your style is and how to use it.
5. The people that are most important to you.
It is really important to know the people in your life that matter the most to you. These are the people you know you can count on and that would never leave you in a time of need. It’s important to know who these people are because it helps you know the relationships in your life that mean the most to you and who you know will be there for you when you need help. It also helps to know what relationships you really value and which ones aren’t as essential to you because then you can put more effort into the real relationships.
