It might be time to take a step back and ask yourself why.
There are many reasons why people feel the need to constantly prove their worth, whether it’s to themselves or others. Maybe you’re insecure and need validation. Maybe you’re afraid of being found out as a fraud. Maybe you’ve been hurt in the past and are now overcompensating.
Whatever the reason, it’s important to recognize that this need is likely coming from a place of insecurity, and that’s not a healthy place to operate from.
If you find yourself in this situation, it might be helpful to ask yourself what you’re really trying to achieve by constantly proving your worth. Is it approval? Love? Respect? Once you identify what you’re really after, you can start working on finding other ways to get those needs met.
In the meantime, try to cut yourself some slack and give yourself credit for all the great things you do – even if no one else notices them.
