Who am I and why should I matter to a boss, a boyfriend, or a friend?

What methods would you recommend to someone looking to develop a sense of self and a more accurate sense of their own value if they've spent most of their life defining themselves and their worth through their grades, their job, and their partner?

I am really struggling lately, and one of the biggest things that's come to light in the midst of this struggle is that while I inherently get that I have value and my life is worthwhile, I cannot identify the factors that make it all so, nor can I articulate those factors to the people who need to hear them. This is causing me problems in my job, in my relationships with men, and in my life in general. A serious lack of funds is compounding the issue.
How can I find myself and figure out who I am and why I am worthwhile?
