A Course to Build Self-Worth by Analyzing and Understanding Comfort Characters
We often are more empathetic towards the various characters in media that inspire us or that we hold dear, than we ever are to ourselves. We often don’t allow ourselves access to the same compassion and respect we show these characters, even if we wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to feel that way about a friend or peer. In this class, I’m hoping to help those that struggle finding their own self worth, or don’t always see the good in themselves. There are a lot of people that don’t see themselves as important, and not enough of those people, of all ages, realize how unhealthy it is to view themselves that way. It can be very detrimental towards what obstacles you’re able to overcome, or which of your goals you are able to meet, and how you do so. It’s important to be proud of yourself, it’s important to believe in yourself and care about yourself enough in order to maintain healthy relationships with others. Sometimes we don’t see how important it is to the people we love that that we see our own value. I think looking at things from this angle might help others feel better about themselves in the same way it’s given me the strength to keep moving forward, with my head held high.
A willingness to analyze and introspect, to confront both the hurtful and hopeful parts of yourself and who you are. A desire to find the light that’s supposedly at the end of our own tunnels, that we are only familiar with because of the characters that inspire us all.
