Surefire Ways to Help Boost Your Confidence and Self-Esteem
Having positive self-esteem helps you not only in making the right choices in your life in and pursuing your dreams and goals but also in giving you inner peace and harmony. It also helps improve your health and well-being and live your life to the fullest.
But dealing with society’s scrutiny and standards, peer pressure, and dealing with expectations and disappointments make it hard for us to pursue what makes us happy. How can we stop belittling ourselves and improve our self-esteem? Here’s what the experts have to say.
Don’t Punish Yourself Over Your Mistakes
The experts gave this example to help you realize how often you obsess over your mistakes. Imagine yourself in this scenario. You have a dog who accidentally eats your slippers or tear your headset off. Normally, you’ll be angry for their mistakes. But then you get over it and forgive them since you knew they didn’t mean it, and because you love them.
So why can’t you apply the same and forgive yourself? However, you must learn how to cope up and move on. Instead of dwelling in how things could’ve been, learn from your past mistakes and bring these lessons with you as you move forward so as not to commit the same mistakes again. These mistakes can help you become a better person.
Stop Pursuing Toxic Friendships and Relationships
Are you forced to hang out with your friends because you’re afraid they’ll ditch you if you didn’t please them? Or are you forced to stay in a relationship for fear of being left behind? The experts recommend you sever these ties since you’re better off without them. This may seem like a painful thing to do, but your family and friends should inspire and uplift you to achieve your goals to achieve the best version of yourself. Try to find long-lasting and genuine friendships.
Do you have skill in drawing or illustration, painting, writing, dancing? Start using your talents to bring joy to the people and entertain them. This gives you a sense of purpose and know your talent is needed to bring joy and inspiration to those who believe in you. You can also make a living by following your passion or using your God-given talents.
Have Some Alone Time
Are you tired from working five days a week and just want to relax on weekends, but can’t do so because you’re entitled to hang out with your friends? If that’s the case, try to minimize these hangouts and learn to say no to your friends. Saying no occasionally helps boost your self-esteem because it means you’re not too dependent on someone else. The best way to improve your self-esteem is to give some precious time to yourself.
While it’s recommended to splurge in your favorite foods once in a while, or even buy those expensive foods you crave, the experts recommend you start caring for your body too. In this way, you’ll have the energy to do all the things you want without getting sick. They also recommend you embrace your flaws as this makes up who you are.
