When reading many of the personal finance blogs I tend to get discouraged (and a little bit jealous) when I view the bloggers financial net worth. As someone who currently has an overall negative financial net worth I can relate to many adults with ADD who use their net worth to help judge their self worth. They look at their bad financial habits and opportunities missed and get depressed about the future. Self worth has nothing to do with net worth. Self worth is about looking in the mirror and accepting that you have made mistakes in the past while trying to develop positive habits to help your future. Its about using all of the gifts that you have to help others. It about getting back up every time something knocks you off the path to your dreams. By developing positive financial habits to grow your net worth, you will know you are also doing something to increase you self worth.
