Is there any part of your life where you feel devalued? Really think about this: Is it in your job or your relationships? Where do you feel unappreciated, ignored, unheard?

Now the question to answer in order to move forward is this: How much of your feeling this way has to do with your own insecurities and self worth, and how much of it is toxic environments / people? Could it be a combination of both? This is important sort out with a therapist or life coach if you can’t do so on your own.

If you feel that much of it is you, make an intention to work on your piece — why you feel insignificant. Where does that come from? Is it an internal thing or circumstantial? It looks different for each person, depending on their story, beliefs about themselves, and how they have designed their life.

If the origin is external — in people and the environment around you — then you need to think about realignment. Realignment means redesigning your life in a way where you feel more significant. Make a decision to create some new non-negotiables with people in your life who are preventing your growth or your potential.

Life is too short to feel insignificant in any relationship. Ask yourself if the relationship is worth salvaging and working on — or not. Some relationships are not “fixable.” Remember, you’re only half of any relationship coin. You alone can’t fix a relationship; all you can do is create a shift by “fixing” yourself.
