Ive been thinking about my self-worth lately and how it affects my happiness.
I think that in order to feel worthy, I need to feel needed. I’m not sure if this is healthy or not, but I can correlate this to every relationship in my life.
For example, I have been struggling with my feelings about my new job lately and I wasn’t sure why. But then, today, I was put under a high pressure situation in which my boss told me that he needed my help. After I finished the project, I felt so satisfied with myself and my job. I produced something that was needed and appreciated. I was productive and felt fulfilled.
Maybe this is whats lacking in my other relationships; The feeling of being needed and then fulfilling that need.
Of course, this can easily take a dangerous road to co-dependent town, usa, but I think that there should be a balance.
Why not let yourself be vulnerable and tell someone you need them? You might actually be surprised to find that they need you too.
