Um, not exactly here either. However, does that make me less worthy of a person? What if I told you that the reason I didn’t quite reach my goals was because I chose to spend some quality time with my children instead of sitting in front of my computer?
Goals are important but my worth is not defined by whether or not I reach them.
Our culture ties self-worth to performance. Yet, losing a game doesn’t make me a loser. Just like finishng a project doesn’t transform me into a wonderful person. One incident does not define who I am.
I’m learning to separate who I am as a person (my purpose in life) from what I do (my goals and dreams).
