We all want a high self-worth. I mean, who doesn’t right? High self-esteem is being able to appreciate ourselves for who we are. With high self-esteem comes a simpler, happier and fulfilled life. We all want that, don’t we?
Are you feeling a bit down lately? Don’t worry, my friend, you’re not alone! But hey, let’s not let that feeling dominate our being, alright? Try these to help boost your self-esteem.
1. Trust yourself
If you don’t trust yourself, who would? Low self-esteem happens when we question our capacity. Teach yourself to never doubt your potential. Yes, you have potential! Believe that! All you have to do is figure out what it is and start improving that skill.
2. Have appreciation Time
What is this? It’s taking 2 to 3 minutes of your time daily to appreciate yourself. Sounds easy-peasy but we have to be consistent here! So how it’s done is, we try to get some alone time and think “I’m great today because…” Then name at least three things you’ve done well for the day. And if you want to pat your shoulder after, you can do that too! 😉
3. Ditch perfection
They always say, “Nobody’s perfect.” That’s true! We can’t have a perfect life. The danger if we want perfection is we might not even try anymore out of fear of failure. Now, that’s not we want, right? We wanna be someone who values herself/himself greatly. So, go ahead, ditch that imperfection, don’t be too hard on yourself, embrace your flaws, learn from your mistakes and focus on your achievements instead. Say ‘self-goals’! ♥
4. No, no to comparing!
Another thing that keeps our self-value low is when we focus on other people’s achievements. We can’t improve ourselves if we mind others. You might say, “argh, she’s so good at this and I’m not!” Hey, don’t forget you are also good at something that others are not! So, let’s stop comparing ourselves with others, shall we? Do I hear a yes? 🙂
5. Do what you love
Plain and simple: if we do the things that we are passionate about, we are joyful and motivated.
6. Be with supportive friends
Stay away from toxic people. They will not help you grow. Surround yourself with supportive friends – those who understand you and are willing help you be a better version of yourself. These girlfriends are guaranteed to promote a positive outlook on life!
Boosting self-esteem doesn’t happen overnight, that’s just impossible! It requires patience and tons of trial and errors. Are you ready to take on the challenge? If yes, then great! You are already off to a good. Follow these tips and you’ll be on your way to achieving a higher self-value!
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
