Thought Ladder for Self-Worth

I have this belief, thought, that my self-worth is determined by how much money I earn. Which leads to my feelings of worthlessness and sadness.

I would love to believe that I am valuable and totally worthy even if I make zero dollars. But even though I know that intellectually, I don’t believe it.

The ladder thought “I have self-worth” is still unbelievable to my brain because it immediately goes to “your self-worth depends on how much money you make and you make little, so your self-worth is little and negligible”.

Another thought ladder “I’m open to the idea that my self-worth is not dependent on how much money I make” is one I understand intellectually, but do not believe.

So I would really love some help here. Thank you.
