Tips to increase self-esteem

We all have those days when we wake up just “not feeling it.”

Struggling with self-esteem is commonly due to the fact that we either care too much about what others think about us, or we don’t have faith in our own capabilities. Self-esteem is an important quality to have to face and overcome fear, move forward in life, and accomplish goals.

Self-esteem is something that can be hard to find, so please know that you are not alone in this struggle. Everyone struggles with finding confidence every now and then, but I hope after reading this post you’ll find it much easier to be confident in your everyday life.

Think positive

You must remove the doubt that you can make it happen. If you are having doubts about your capability to succeed, those doubts are most likely fear. What you focus on in your mind will become your reality eventually. So, you must let those doubts go and focus only on succeeding.

Focus on what you can control and be present

If you can’t do anything to change something, what is the point of focusing on that? Focusing on those things kept you away from the present moment and you can’t see all the opportunities you have in front of you. If you are present, there is no room to worry because most of the things we are worrying about or feeling unconfident about are in the future.  I know this can be hard but trying to focus on what you can really change and control is so beneficial.

Surround yourself with positive people

Energy is contagious, never forget that. Surround yourself with people that bring the best of you, that vibe your energy.

Positive self-talk

Thoughts become words, your words become your actions, and your actions become your life.  When you say positive words to yourself, you will trick your brain into thinking and believing those things. If you believe you are confident, you will start speaking confidently. This can do wonders for your self-esteem.

Put yourself in uncomfortable positions

Self-esteem is a skill that cannot be developed by staying in our comfort zones. Put yourself out there, you can do it! Reflect on your accomplishments, when you did something scary and everything was okay. This will motivate you to keep going.

Make a list of all the things you love about yourself

Write it down everything that comes to your mind. And after that, read carefully, trying to picture situations where those aspects of yourself were in play.

Try a guided meditation for self-esteem

Meditation is very powerful and capable of giving you a full transformational experience. You can find lots of apps and Youtube videos where just need to listen and follow the instructions.

Be grateful

Be grateful for what you have in life, for what others have given you, everything! It’s a very positive and rewarding activity that will improve your self-esteem.

To end this post, let’s boost that self-esteem! So, let me know: what are two things you love about yourself? Write it down in the comments, I would love to know! ❤️

        I’m struggling with this so bad.. I’m very giving… But that can be hurtful in many ways but I get joy outta giving… I’m also very honest… That’s the two things I love about myself.. I really do need help learning to love myself I’ve let myself go and don’t know how to come back??? Pray for me please Thanks…

        1. Praying for you to find your way & find yourself & just letting u know that i read your comment & am sending you good thoughts & healing energy Jessica Brewer.

          Just don’t give up, keep talking about it wherever you can & keep reaching out to others. If you can’t reach out to those closest to you reach out for strangers, like on this posting, & actively go out & make new friends, new connections w/people that are able to just hear that you’re struggling & are supportive. Support groups are a GREAT place to make new connections with like-minded people & they’re usually free. Seek them out in your area.

          Isolation is the enemy so keep reaching out & get out of the house & find support. You’re worth it, Jessica. – Amy

        2. I love that I’m so caring and also a very giving person. I’m so grateful for those to qualities. However I do need to love myself and be more proud of what I do in life whether it wasn’t perfect I just need to recognize that I tried to do my very best, even if it didn’t turn out to be what I imagined. Example: when I am coloring I really want the picture to be perfect in my eyes so when I do mess up a little I really just want to throw it away. I do need to learn that the imperfections can be beautiful in their own way.🙏💕

      2. 1. Honesty
        2. Helpful to others
