Self-Worth as a Path to Optimal Health and Wellness:
Our goal is to accept that no matter what we look like personally or what our lives look like, that we are all children of a Higher Power and that each one of us is special, unique and wonderful in our own way. We will also learn that the power of being our own best friend lies in our ability to seek approval from within, rather than from without, regardless of the circumstance or the situation. Clinical research and data supporting the therapeutic value of Self-Worth help the participant reach this goal.

Self-worth: A Continuum, A Choice, An Obstacle Course
Although the expression self-worth is widely used, there are many other phrases that also convey aspects of this tendency: self-esteem, self-image, self-love, self-respect, self-appreciation, and confidence are among them. Whichever term we choose to use, collectively or individually, each of them represents a healthy, positive valuing of self. Clarification is established regarding what self-worth is and what self-worth is not.

Self-Worth: A Path to Health
In choosing Self-Worth we are choosing to enhance our experience of life by living from a place of self-honoring and self-appreciation. This means we will create healthy boundaries and win respect from those around us by demonstrating great respect for ourselves. As we learn to appreciate ourselves more fully we will learn not only to fully value ourselves, but others as well.

On this path we will discover a positive sense of self-worth will open many new vistas of joy, opportunities and personal evolution that will enhance our overall health and wellness. We will feel a connection to an inner strength and project that connection outward to others.
