  • I measure my selfworth by when I realize I've made a mistake and learned from it to either do different when that situation comes up or to not act at all and next time let it slide - I say that to my kids so they learn mistakes happen, an apology and an explanation can help all to grow even better. Learn and live and live and learn more.

  • I think honestly its about having a meaningful life. Not every moment can be like this but ultimately, if I feel like I'm making a difference beyond myself, I feel like I have value. Some days that comes from paying special care as a mother, organizing the moms group I created or getting involved locally. But I think it means different things to different people. Ultimately not letting yourself down is how I would define it.

  • I don't have self-worth. My worth has always been directly tied to my faith. So has my self-esteem. I try to practice those 10 Commandments. I make sure that when I look into the mirror that I'm not looking at a person who lies, cheats, steals, covets, etc. If I have done any of those things, I make my amends, apologize if needed, and the like. I try to not do anything that makes me ashamed and my worth is given to me.
