You may not like this. The short answer is:
The other thing is to do the things you want to do in life. Learn from your failures. Nothing makes us feel more worthwhile than in being to help others and feel like we are making a difference.
And it may sound silly, but setting goals for yourself and then achieving them is a great way to have 'self-worth'. When you prove to yourself that you can do the things you set out to do, then you can do even more.
The other thing is to cultivate compassion for yourself. I do this as a practice. It's called Tonglen (if you google the word you will find instructions on how to do it). The point here is that there are many ways to answer to question. Rock bottom? I think it's all about intention. Cultivating a strong intention.
