Net Worth vs. Self Worth

This article in the Guardian gives a snapshot view of the idea that the pursuit of material wealth in a time of economic uncertainty is having a negative impact on our individual and collective mental health:

I particularly like the conclusion:
“… it is high time for an inequality therapy that doesn’t fault people for being crushed by an inhumane marketplace – but instead recognizes that it is the system, not the self, that is broken.”

In therapy, we inevitably work on our ourselves as individuals, but I hope that we can also empower ourselves to address systemic and societal concerns that are contributing to our mental ill-health and general malaise.
