People often think it is impossible to regain /rebuild their self-esteem because that is what low self-esteem makes you believe. Getting your self-esteem back is similar to embarking on a very long journey. The outcome of the journey depends on your will,it could yield positive or negative results depending on what you do. In any case, always remember to take your energy drink along…
HOW TO REBUILD YOUR SELF-ESTEEM.
The journey of a thousand miles starts with a step. There won’t be a journey if you’re not willing to take that step. The path to regaining/fighting for something would definitely not be easy, it will be full of challenges that will make you reconsider your decision and if there’s no determination in the picture then you’ll surely back out. Remember, nothing in life comes easy not even breathing and if it was very easy, nobody would suffer from low self-esteem issues.
2.MAKE GOOD CHOICES.
Choose wisely, especially in areas regarding friendship. Who you surround yourself with affects your mental health. What people say to you and how they treat you can affect how you will feel about yourself. Spend time with people that make you feel good about yourself. If you spend time with people who put you down, do not support you or do not appreciate you, you are going to attach that to your worth. When you choose to build positive relationships with people who are supportive, build you up and appreciate who you are and what you have to offer, it makes it easier to feel better about yourself. Certain friends are naysayers, who never see positivity, who don’t believe in your ability, you need to disconnect from such friends if you want to build your self-esteem because such friends will make you feel worthless. ‘Your vibe attracts your tribe!’.
3.RECOGNIZE WHAT YOU’RE GOOD AT.
Everyone is good at something,it could be cooking, drawing, dancing or writing. There’s definitely one activity you’re good at, maybe you haven’t discovered it yet. Writing a big list of things that you are good at helps to concentrate on what you are good at rather than focusing on negative thoughts about yourself. When you engage yourself in activities, it will boost your mood and help you de-stress. Know that you can’t be good at everything and
There is so much value in appreciating yourself and what you have in your life. Affirmations and positive statements that you repeat to yourself throughout the day or write in your journal can prove invaluable to maintaining a positive mindset.
When you practice positive affirmations regularly, you help to change your attitude to life. You learn to attract positivity and learn the art of manifestation. Manifestation is powerful and you can use these affirmations to regain your self-esteem. Your mind has so much power and can alter your whole outlook on life. Practicing positive affirmations can help change your mindset and increase your confidence.
5.CELEBRATE YOUR WINS.
As stated in my last post,low self-esteem makes you think every achievement was sheer luck. It isn’t. Change your mentality. Celebrate your wins.Whether large or small, a win always marks an achievement. Small wins are also important as they contribute and lead to a bigger win. Th Celebrating small wins sparks the reward circuits of your brain and releases endorphins that will give you a sense of rode and happiness. Once you recognise your achievements, they will motivate you towards your next one. Your mood and confidence will be boosted by seeing how well you are doing.
If you want to soar in life, learn to fly first. You need to love yourself if you want to be loved. If you’re constantly at war with yourself, how will you be at peace with others?. Loving yourself goes a long way in reshaping your mind and rebuilding yourself. When you don’t love yourself, you’ll start relying too much on others to make you feel loved and you lose your power giving another person the ability to control you.You’ll be on an endless search for love and friendship. You’ll spend your whole life searching for love. That in itself is not only off-putting to others, but it’s also exhausting to you.
Be yourself. Neither perfect nor imperfect,just YOU.
