Worth

I have a love/hate relationship with the word, “worth.”

I often ask myself, “Do you know your worth?”

It all started when I watched “The Joy Luck Club” movie.

In it, An-Mei tells her daughter Rose, “No, this cannot be, this not knowing what you’re worth, this not begin with you. My mother not know her worth until too late – too late for her, but not for me. Now we will see if not too late for you, hmm?”

I’m not sure why this resonated with me so much that it stuck with me ever since I watched the movie in elementary or middle school.

The quote makes me wonder.

Do I know what I’m worth?
Do I know what I’m capable of?
Am I worth it?
Am I worthy?

It’s easy to answer, “Yes” to all those questions. It’s also easy to speculate about whether or not it’s really true.

I don’t know if anyone else struggles with their worth. Tell me, do you know your worth? I’m still figuring out mine.
