Four Simple Ways To Improve Your Self Esteem

There are many ways to improve your self esteem–many of which are simple and practical. But, not a lot of people believe that these methods can actually work.

Well, this is not entirely surprising as it can be quite difficult to believe that very simple things can actually do so much for an individual’s self esteem.

You too may be skeptical. You may think that low self esteem is such a serious issue that doing these simple things may seem futile, but no. Just learn them, give them a try and you will see how much difference to how you look at yourself.

Things You Can Do To Improve Your Self Esteem

Count your blessings not what you are missing.

Look at what you have and not what you don’t have. If you keep focusing on the things that you are lacking in life, then you will end up bitter, jealous and resentful.

Always try to look at what you have, what you are endowed with. Do not look at other people and see the things that they have that you don’t. Instead, look at other people and see what you have that they don’t.

Let go of the negative emotions that you have bottled up from past experiences.

Many people suffer from low self-esteem because they feel burdened by negative thoughts and feelings that they have acquired during their childhood. Often unfair self-evaluations are brought about by disapproval of a parent, relative, or peer.

If you’re still dragging and harboring these emotional baggages with you, it’s high time that you let go of them. Look at your life now, and evaluate yourself based upon your life as it exists today. Your perspective may not change overnight, but it eventually will.

Work on your weaknesses.

If there are certain areas in your life that make you feel bad about yourself, you should act on fixing those areas instead of letting them pull you down. You should act on correcting the problem within you instead of waiting for the world to change.

If you think you do not have great communication skills, take public speaking courses; if you think you lack good interpersonal relationships, take a course on social interactions. Look at the points that you think you are not good at and improve them. As you work through your problem areas, you will probably encounter a lot of failures, but keep pressing on and you will eventually find success.

Embrace failure.

Even the greatest men in history have failed at some point in their lives. But, they never let failure stop them from being the admired and accomplished people that they are. Successful people do not look at failure as an end, but as a stepping stone to success. Do not look at failure as a foe. Failure is a good teacher, learn from it. As long as your failures are moving you closer to your desired end-state, they are good.

Do not wait for tomorrow. Do these things now! The more you ignore your self esteem problems, the more they will blow up. I hope these 4 simple ways to improve your self esteem has helped you in some small way, overcome whatever self-esteem issues you’re dealing with.

    Just know that on the basis of all depression is a FEAR of somtiheng. You probably have somtiheng in your mind like – ‘i will go crazy’, or ‘i will fail’ or ‘die’ or smth like that. Just know that because u feel depressed, it is normal to be pessimistic, in fact all your fears will NOT materialize. Don’t pay too much attention to your mood, all people have bad moods, just know that it is impossible to feel good all the time, just like feeling bad all the time, u will come out of it, but not at once. Take a step at a time, 2 hours of good mood per day, 3 hours, 4, 5, …one week of good mood, etc. Dont expect that one day you will wake up and it will disappear, it will take time and its normal. There is not magic pill from depression, but still, 8 in 10 people get out of it forever, and WHY NOT YOU. You need to convince yourself.U see depression is like a circle, you ‘FEEL BAD because U ARE FEELING BAD’, get out of that circle, just say to yourself, I feel bad by i will do somtiheng to feel better (go for a walk, talk to friends, wathc movie, etc.), just like other people do, they feel bad and they do somtiheng to feel batter. dont get stuck ok. Was this answer helpful?

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts Diana. Indeed, there is a way out of depression–but only if we are willing to make an effort. Although I agree that there are things we can do on our own to battle depression, we should not hesitate to ask help from other people, especially from professionals when we feel like things are getting out of hand.
