The ability to feel good about yourself is something that is not spoken about enough in life.You need to focus on one hobby that brings you confidence, because when you master a skill not only will you begin to feel better about yourself, but your self esteem will start to grow as well. I personally struggle with my mind telling me that I am not good enough but then I think about all the strength and knowledge I have gained on my own throughout the years. I am here to be your guide, so here’s my input on how to increase your self esteem. However, before we get started, what exactly is self-esteem? Self esteem has to do with the way you see yourself and it can be negatively affected by concern for the opinions of other people, or simply seeing yourself in a negative light.
1.Start loving your inner self for who you are right now
You may not feel content with yourself because people’s opinions or your own thoughts have gotten to you. You may believe that “you are not good enough”,”not pretty enough”, or you “don’t feel financially stable.” First, I’d like to encourage you to look at your weaknesses or something you feel that you need to improve in order to build your self esteem. If you are not comfortable with your body, then change your mindset and say ” I will go to the gym and make changes.” It is incredibly important to love yourself for who you are, but if you are not happy there are steps in life you need to take to build your self-esteem.
2. Ask yourself What makes you unique
Everyone has an incredible gift in life, and there’s not one single person in the world who is not unique. We were created for a purpose, regardless of what your spiritual beliefs are. I myself struggle with feeling unsure if I am worthy enough to be loved by anyone, and that is okay, but you need to know in your mind how you are unique from others.
3. What makes you happy?
When you ask yourself this question don’t think about family, friends or your relationship.You need to think about how you feel about being you right now. As humans we compare ourselves to others far too much.
