    SELF-WORTH (October 6, 2019)

    (21:25:54 PM 04/10/2019)

    Some years ago, one tragic story  shook me. One brilliant student in my neighborhood drowned herself after learning that her entrance exam result wasn’t good enough for her to  attend her dream university. In reality, one of driving factor which  instilled her foolish act is her parents’ words: “We didn’t make you do  anything, you just need to learn well. Why can’t you do such a simple  thing?” The question raised in my mind at the moment of hearing that  story is “Should one person’s self-worth be based on their academic  results only?”
    So what is self-worth? Self-worth is defined by  Merriam-Webster as “a feeling that you are a good person who deserves to  be treated with respect”. To put it simply, a person with a strong  sense of self-worth tend to be proud of who he is despite his own faults  and mistakes since he accepts them. As a result, other people’s  criticism or belittling words can’t take them down.
    In reality,  however, not many people are lucky to be blessed with strong sense of  self-worth. Basically, this need building from early childhood until the  end of our life, especially during turbulent times such as teenage  years and working life. I’ve seen many cases when children become  withdrawn after parents repeatedly criticize their actions. They end up  lacking confidence to communicate with others because their sense of  self-worth runs too low. Also, one of my students in his teens often  fought back the teacher for trivial things to cover his deep aching pain  of not being accepted by peers inside. I also see many women who refuse  to leave their husbands despite the bruises and black eyes they give  their wives. There is one fact that people with low sense of self-worth  are prone to maltreatment and withdrawal during their life.
    What  do you think of this matter? Come to Advance this Sunday to have  fruitful discussion and share your own experience. All your opinions are  valuable to us.


    QUESTIONS FOR DISCUSSION:
    1. In your own words, define self-worth. What are signs of high self-worth?
    2. What are the causes of people diminishing their sense of self-worth?  Do jealousy and achievement-oriented outlook play a part?
    3. What are the consequences of having low self-worth?
    4. Vietnamese traditional society didn’t promote people’s self-worth  because parents didn’t encourage their children to express their  opinions freely. To what extent do you agree or disagree with the  statement?
    5. How can adults increase their sense of self-worth?
    6. Parents should nourish their children’s self-worth in many ways. What are they?
