Worthiness and work

C: I had a conversation with my boyfriend about a conflict we had.
T: I don’t want to feel like a piece of shit
F: Avoidance
A: Brain scans for validation–keeps trying to justify worthiness with thoughts about work. Realize won’t have a job in 4 days.
R: Tell myself I need to get a new job.

I was able to interrupt the flow before feeling like a piece of shit, which I bet would have been the next step in the result line.  It bothers me how I have my worthiness tied so closely to my work. I’d like to view my worth in a new light with more dimensions. Do you have suggestions for a next step?
