Self-esteem and worth before HaShem

Over the years I have come to realize that I'm not really "worth" much--but because HaShem made me, I'm worth everything to Him. On that basis it is my life's work to make every moment useful and to be there for others--the need is endless. To fulfill tikun olam requires no sense of worth except in HaShem's eyes. That is all that matters. That is what brings me happiness.

As in so many areas of life ...

what we need when it comes to self esteem is balance. Yes, we are blessed to be G_d's people and that is great. Yes, there are those of us who are blessed with a whole lot of gifts and that is great, too. But, Lori, I think you are correct in mentioning that some people have such outsized egos that they come to believe that they are "too good" for the things you mentioned (i.e., careers, relationships and life choices). They can believe that there is always something "better" just around the corner and don't THEY just deserve it! We, parents, have quite a responsibility in striking just the right balance between having kids with a decent sense of self worth or egotistical monsters who romp around the world with an outsized sense of entitlement.
