Self-Esteem, just what is it? Well it is the way we see ourselves for instance. Liking you for who you are. Knowing your strengths and also knowing that you are a worthy person.
Some of the things that we use to judge our self-esteem levels:
It is How you see your value as a person.
How you think others see you and how you feel about it.
Where you fit in and your purpose in life.
The type of job you do and how happy you are doing it.
Things that you have or have not achieved in your life.
How you see your potential for success.
Whether you can stand on your own two feet.
How independent you feel and are.
Low Self-Esteem is caused by all your negative and defeating emotions about yourself. Not Good Enough- No Self-Confidence-Unhappy etc.
High Self-Esteem is brought about by your positive feelings about yourself. Confident Happy and Sure of Yourself etc.
There is also another side to Self-Esteem and that is:
“Excessive Self-Esteem” this can show up as being Over-Confident-Superior Attitude- Bragging. Some recent studies have shown that Bullying may not be due to “Low Self-Esteem” as has been the long held reason, but to actually due to “Excessive Self-Esteem” being better than anyone else. (This is just some information that I have come across and if you or anyone you know of has ever suffered from low self-esteem it seems to make sense. Well it does to me).
There are some things that we can do to help us improve our Self-Esteem:
Forgive yourself when you make a mistake.
Be Proud and Happy about your strengths and achievements
Stop putting yourself down.
Don’t feel guilty about what you think or feel are your weaknesses learn from them.
Stop judging yourself by unreasonable high standards. Not everyone is the same and that does not mean that you are not as good as the next person.
We bring Low Self-Esteem on ourselves mainly by devaluing our own worth and judging ourselves by others.
