I have noticed that some people, like Athenian and me, base their self-worth on finding something particular of value in themselves. This often results in low self-esteem. It does for me.
Others, on the other hand believe they have self-worth no matter what.
How would you convince someone who believes in contingent self-worth to change his/her mind?
In particular, please try to convince me that self-worth is not contingent on finding something particular of value in myself.
