Your true self is independent of external things like how much money you have, what job you have, how many friends you have etc etc. Your true self has infinite worth no matter what your external situations are.

Going around measuring your own self-worth according to external things is like a millionaire walking around like a beggar because he’s forgotten how wealthy he is. Every person has a wealth inside them but many people don’t realize it because they identify too much with external things and their ego-identity.

– Deepak Chopra (paraphrased)
