hey everyone! Welcome to my blog. I am going to be talking about how you can deal with low self-esteem, a lot of people deal with low self-esteem and because of this, they make bad decisions in order to build up their self-esteem and those decisions affect them later in the future. so that’s why I decided to share 10 ways you can deal with it. here they are:
- Start a compliment Jar
Many people probably think that this won’t work but they are wrong. for an entire month, write down something you like about yourself every single day, any compliment that’s truly positive counts. At the end of the month, go through your positive thoughts and reflect on them.
2. Start living for now.
Low self-esteem is often a problem of putting too much emphasis on things that can’t be changed or that are too far in the future to tell the outcome. Stop thinking these thoughts and live in the now.
3. Keep a Journal
I had a journal once, I wrote in it practically every day but then I stopped not because it wasn’t helping but because my aunt took it and read it LOL but basically when you write down your feelings, you get them out in a healthy way. Once you release them through quick and freeform writing. Close your journal for the day and don’t open it again until its time to write again. People think that having a journal is actually childish but I don’t think so.
4. Become Aware of your negativity
When you catch yourself being negative, actively acknowledge it. When you recognize your negativity, you give yourself the chance to respond with positivity. To be very honest I am a really negative person but I try my best to be positive and you should too.
5. Ask Yourself “IF…”.
“If someone else was in my position, would I make them feel negative?” Sometimes looking objectively at yourself and your situation can make you feel more positive.
6. Stop Judging Yourself And Others
Normally those with low self-esteem are also very negative in other areas of their life. If you find yourself criticizing others, STOP. Be more positive in all areas of your life.
7. Start Meditating.
Doing Something relaxing can help you become more positive about yourself. Try and let go of all your inner anxiety and breathe for 15 minutes a day or more. It works!
8. Have conversations with yourself.
This is not creepy at all! instead of you falling back on negative thoughts, start talking to yourself like an adult. Converse with yourself, ask yourself questions like why you are feeling the way you do? How can you make it better? sometimes I have conversations in my head and I start to laugh, people are always staring at me.
9. Learn To Let It All Go
Disconnecting from what’s making you anxious can sometimes be the best thing for you. When you have low self-esteem, learn not to put so much investment into what you’re upset by about yourself.
10. Be an active participant in your life.
Don’t be a backseat driver. When you let your emotions run your life. you aren’t truly in control. Start actively participating in your life to help develop a more positive attitude.
