We’ve all heard it before when we are complaining about some guy who did us dirty. The phrase “know your worth!” is always used as a way to encourage you to dump him. But what exactly does that mean, right? Keep reading to find out why knowing your worth is so damn necessary.
There is nothing more powerful than a woman who knows her worth.
What Does It Mean To Know Your Worth?
A woman who knows her worth loves herself and understands that she is valuable. She understands that her value doesn’t come from others because it comes from within. She sets standards for herself and who she chooses to involve herself with because she believes that she deserves good things.
Knowing your worth means that you know your values, priorities, strengths, and weaknesses, and you choose to prioritize yourself in any situation.
Why You Should Know Your Worth
Girl, you are UNSTOPPABLE after you realize your self-worth. The world becomes yours because you become the main character of your story. You become this badass woman who isn’t afraid to meet her fullest potential.
Suddenly, you realize that some people just simply aren’t fucking worth it because of their bad energy. You start to protect your own energy because it is worth something to you.
If a man can’t see your value — fuck him. Don’t actually fuck him, but throw that asshole in the trash where he belongs!
You need to understand that you’re a badass bitch who shouldn’t be wasting her precious time trying to convince some guy of her value. The right man will see what you already see in yourself — an amazing woman with so much to offer the world.

Your love life is transformed when you know your worth and raise your standards. Your heart will be broken a lot less because you won’t allow shitty men to waste your time for very long. Here are some ways you’ll know you have finally reached enlightenment and know your worth!
A Woman Who Knows Her Worth…
1. Trusts Herself
There’s this little thing called women’s intuition and that shit is powerful when you actually listen to it. If you’re dating a guy who is secretive with his phone — there’s a reason why.
You don’t even need to confront the asshole about his sketchy behavior because you already know he’s being sketchy.
You trust your intuition because it’s right more often than it is wrong. A woman who knows her worth doesn’t put up with playboy behavior, ignore red flags or anything that will waste her precious time and energy.
2. Stands Up For Herself
A woman who knows her worth knows the importance of standing up for herself. Don’t ever let a man call you out of your name unless he is calling you babe or honey. If he has left you on read for the past two days — block his ass. Only you can set the standards of who you allow in your life. If you don’t stand up for yourself, men will think they can do whatever the fuck they want to do without any repercussions. But guess what? You are a boss ass bitch who knows her worth and doesn’t allow herself to be a part of a situation where she’s not feeling valued.
3. Doesn’t Make Excuses For Shitty Behavior
There’s no excuse for shitty behavior whatsoever. It really doesn’t matter if he had a tough day at work or he’s stressed out about something else. Never make excuses for a man who is treating you badly because if you start to make excuses for him, he’ll feel that it’s okay to treat you badly because you let him.
You make excuses for a man because you are clinging to that relationship you’ve imagined in your head. You want to go on all those future dates with him and see his potential.
Do not fall in love with potential, babe. Look at the hard facts and the reality of how he is treating you. When a guy shows you his true colors, believe him! High-value women know when they are unappreciated and refuse to put up with bullshit from any man. Period!
4. Set Healthy Boundaries and Enforces Them
Setting boundaries is really fucking important in any relationship. We’ve already touched on the men who just don’t feel the need to text back and leave us on read — but what about the men that are way too clingy? That’s equally just as bad except for it’s on the opposite end of the spectrum.
Ladies, please set healthy boundaries in your relationships. A woman who knows her worth understands that boundaries are necessary for a healthy relationship.
You need to understand your standards and hold your man to those standards. If a man isn’t meeting your standards or if he isn’t respecting the boundaries that you set, then you need to know your worth and move the fuck along.
5. Doesn’t Stay in the Comfort Zone
It makes me really sad when women stay in toxic relationships because they’re comfortable. Just because you’ve been with the same guy for five years doesn’t mean he’s allowed to treat you poorly. A woman who knows her worth doesn’t get her validation from her relationship.
You need to understand that you have an identity outside of your relationship. Never stay in your “comfort zone” if that comfort zone entails being treated like shit. It may be scary, but a woman who knows her worth isn’t afraid to leave a relationship.
Some of the best opportunities in work, love, and life in general happen when you go outside of your comfort zone. Women who know their worth understand that they add value to any situation and aren’t afraid to immerse themselves in new experiences because they have the self-confidence they need to thrive.
6. Doesn’t Allow Toxicity in Her Life
If you’re in an on-again and off-again relationship that has you stressed out and tired, ditch his ass. Toxic energy has no room in the life of a woman who knows her worth. A woman who knows her worth understands that she needs to be selective with the people who are allowed to enter her life.
If someone gives off bad vibes, you should immediately cut ties. A woman who knows her worth understands that she’s allowed to have standards in her life because she understands that she is a beautiful, strong woman.
As Cher says, a man is a luxury NOT a necessity. Never let a lame guy stay in your life just because you don’t want to be single.
It’s so important to understand that you are a beautiful human being that deserves love and respect. A great way to practice self-love and realizing your worth is to practice positive affirmations daily. You need to be kind to yourself and speak kindly to yourself.
If you don’t treat yourself with respect, you can’t expect others to treat you with respect. Plus, when you treat yourself like a queen, you won’t let some guy come into your life and treat you like anything else.
When you have an unwavering belief that you deserve more than the bare minimum, that’s exactly what I get you to see in The 30-Day F*ckboy Cleanse!

There’s this popular saying that every woman should live by: know your worth, and then add tax. Just remember that you are a unique human being that has unique qualities to offer the world.
A man should consider himself lucky as hell to have you in his life. You’re a badass bitch who knows her worth and refuses to settle for less.
