How to Feel Valuable

Help Others and Feel Valuable

Whether we realize it or not, we all seek ways to feel valuable and we usually go about it by helping others. At work, we might feel accomplished and valued by being part of a team. At home and in our personal relationships, we look for ways to contribute to others’ well-being and happiness. That’s all valuable stuff.

Want to know how you can make a difference in someone’s life? Talk to one of these psychics and find out!

A Core Emotional Need

So why does feeling valuable matter? In a Harvard Business Review article, “The Only Thing That Matters,” feeling valuable is described as a “core emotional need” that everyone possesses. Without that feeling, we can often lack purpose, motivation and meaning in our everyday existence. Being helpful to others drives our desire to do more and to do better and that stretches out into every area of our lives. We want and need to feel like a helpful, integral part of the world around us.

Having said all that, there are still so many people who think they have nothing special to contribute or who say that they don’t know how to feel valuable. If this sounds like you or someone you know, here are a few ways that will remind you that you are valuable and that you do matter:


No matter what you do for a living, you matter. People get paid for the jobs they do because they are performing a valuable service. Sometimes it can be all too easy to discount our contribution to the bigger picture, but just showing up and doing your job should remind you of how valuable your are. Whether you scrub floors or perform surgeries, you’re an important cog in the wheel of life and you help to make life better for others.

Feel like you don’t make a difference at work? Maybe it’s time for a new job. Psychic Anasela ext. 5154 can help you find one. 


If you really want to know how to feel valuable, try donating your time to a worthy cause. It will not only give you a sense of purpose and meaning, but it will undoubtedly mean the world to those you help. Volunteer at an adult living facility or an animal shelter or offer to walk a sick neighbor’s dog. How’s that for a way to feel valuable?

Being a Mentor

What if you could inspire someone by expanding their mind and showing them opportunities they otherwise would not have known existed? Whether it’s in person on online, think of how valuable you could feel if you could share your passion with others and inspire them to do great things with their lives.

Share your passion with others and inspire someone. Psychic Phillip ext. 9485 can help you get started.

Putting Yourself First

If you want to really know how to feel valuable, start with yourself. Taking care of yourself is not selfish. After all, others are relying on you whether you realize it or not, and if you’re not taking care of yourself you certainly can’t take care of anyone else. So take the time to eat right, drink lots of water, get plenty of rest and do things that bring you joy. Not only will you feel more energized, you’ll be inspiring others to do the same. And if you show that you value yourself, others will value you too.


This may be last on our list, but it’s certainly not least. Sometimes the only thing you have to do to make a difference in someone’s life is to listen, and that can be way more valuable than offering advice.

Do you feel like your partner doesn’t listen to you or respect your feelings? Psychic Burke ext. 5655 can teach them to be a better communicator. 

There are many more ways to feel valuable, but I think you get the picture. Every life has value. Everyone is valuable and precious and unique. Being able to share a little bit of yourself in this way can give you that feeling of fulfillment and it can also remind others how to feel valuable themselves.

    Mary NAILED IT. When you can honestly feel that the people around you are happy (to be around you), you have to know that you are helping them. You are giving them time away from everything
    else in life by just being you and sharing a smile and a laugh. A smile always helps. SOO everyone
    help out and smile today !!!!!

    Brandy Mark and Mary: You all summed it up so well. Anyone else care to comment. What makes you feel valuable? I’d (we’d) love to know.

    I think it is important to set an example of how to treat others.If a person isn’t taught compassion and selflessness at a young age it is rarely found once older. I feel most valuable when someone is happy to have me around.I know that they had felt worthwhile for even a minute can make the difference between someone passing a test . pulling the trigger. staying put. going to school.soo… if by doing things for others is not only educational but nurturing to self and others i believe that to learn value in oneself or in something it has to start by showing and understanding the importance of values and self worth.

    Being there for others, that is good for me, helping with animals is also therapeutic as well :} I know I go beyond the norm when it comes to helping.
