The question makes you think, doesn’t it? I decided to pose this question to you.
Sometimes, we women are always worried about what others think of us. We subject ourselves to listening to the opinions of people that don’t hold a big influence in our lives. I’m here to share with you that the only opinion that matters is yours and yours alone.
Self esteem is feeling good about who we are. It affects the things we think, say, and do. It affects our choices, how we see the world, how the What you think about, you bring about. If you see yourself as negative, worthless, or anything along those lines, in time, that’s what you’re going to get back; more of the same.
When you have a healthy self esteem, you are able to accept yourself just as you are. You are able to celebrate your flaws and realize that it is what makes you unique/special/different. I use all these words positively. We are all uniquely made for a divine purpose. What is your purpose? What is it that you desire to do? You can do it. There’s nothing stating that you can’t. Well, maybe YOU.
You could be stopping yourself from doing the things that you’ve always wanted to do. Your thoughts could be hindering you from seeing how beautiful and wonderful you really are.
How do you know if you suffer from low self esteem? Answer these questions.
1. Do you smile at yourself when you look into the mirror?
2. Are you constantly put yourself down?
3. Do you compare yourself to others?
4. Do you do things that interest you?
5. Do you surround yourself with positive people?
If you answered three or more with a yes, then it’s possible that you suffer from low self esteem. Don’t beat yourself up. This can be changed, but it will take work on your part. Here are some ways that you can start improving your self esteem and self worth.
1. Keep a gratitude journal. Practice the art of saying thank you. Give thanks for all things you. Give thanks for the things you have. As you start doing this regularly, your mood will change and you will become happier.
2. Stop putting yourself down. Whenever a thought like that creeps into your mind, stop it. Don’t let it come out of your mouth. Words have power. Imagine saying some mean things to your friend that you couldn’t take back. Now, the same goes for you. When you speak negatively over yourself, you can’t take those words back. Deep into your subconscious mind, it will start believing the negative that you or anyone says to you as true. Don’t let it go there. Speak words of love over yourself. Tell yourself how beautiful you are, that you are special, you are loved, etc., even if you don’t believe right away. As time goes by, you will believe these things as true; because they are.
3. Do things that interest you.
4. Change your environment.
