Welcome to Conversation with Katherine and my podcast Value vs Desirability
There are so many different narratives that affect our individual and collective journey. One of the main factors, in determining our direction, is the understanding of the difference between value and desirability. Let me first define what I mean when I use the word value. It is self-worth and self direction. I have found different people look at value differently depending on whether they have an internal locus of control or external locus of control they will arrive at different definitions and take a different journey.
Now I have used some fancy words, internal and external locus of control simply describe "who is in charge of your life". Do you take individual responsibility for determinining your self worth and thereby determining your value. Or do others determine your self worth and value. This might seem like this is a simple process. It is not.
