❤️ Today’s mental health affirmation ❤️ 

on reflection (and maybe 3 years + even more therapy after I wrote that one), that affirmation is problematic because:

if I am *more* than my achievements
and my achievements are, say, int n
and self worth is, I dunno, a const int x
then this implies my self/self-worth is n+x

in which case achievements are additive to worth
but this is not the intent of the affirmation!

the intent is more like: I am worthy *despite* my achievements
