Self and Self Worth

The relationship between the self and self worth is best defined as being correlated with the self’s understanding of its subjection to the will of others to the extent that we are subjugated by how others perceive us.

This disgusting fact undermines our true integrity, granted we strive more to please others than to please our very selves.  This by no means should be confused with the act of giving or the idea of selflessness, for it is one thing to please others through caring for the common humanity we share with them, and it is another thing to please others through superficial means in an attempt to feel accepted and worthy.

The true value of self worth, though not fully attainable in the contemporary state where individuality is irrelevant (see earlier blog posts) is inherent in our ability to distinguish vanity from veracity when we attempt to determine what action is appealing and what action is factually just to our character.
