How do I determine my self worth/my salary? I make $80k but I feel like I’m worth $15/h. How do y’all deal with this?

Your personal worth is priceless. Your salary just equates to your service. Two veryyy different things!

I would work on detangling your self worth from your job/salary altogether. This has been life changing for me in terms of reducing my anxiety. I learned it the hard way: I burned out so hard I had to take an extended leave of absence. Purposefully not having a job (and I know how privileged my position is here, not everyone can afford this) made me able to see how full my life was outside of what I do for work: my loved ones, my hobbies, my mental peace. I’ve since started a new job and I’m performing better than ever in large part due to this mental shift and the extended break.
One final thing: if they’re paying you that money then you’re worth it (and likely more!). Companies rarely go out handing out free money. You deserve it.

I know everyone says don't compare yourself to others, but sometimes this helps. Do you do more than x-person who makes less? Less than y-person who makes more?

I used to feel this way, and then once I started a life on my own and didn’t feel happy with what I had I started to realize I deserved more, nice neighborhoods, nice clothes, nice home decor, I need more money to get the lifestyle I want, and that’s what makes me happy!

I pitched a project at work and my company loved it. They want to turn it into a full fleged series. I created pitch docs, episode treatments, etc that they are using to gauge interest from production companies & streamers. They have not guaranteed what my role would be on the series or if I will be on set. What would be a reasonable ask? Could I get a "creator" credit or would that go to the company? I want to be the lead producer on the project. Not sure how pay works if a streamer buys it.
