Good day twenties , it is my hope that you are doing well and are putting your time and energy into building a better and stronger version of yourselves. Thank you so very much for reading my blog. It gives me such an honor to know that my message is being delivered.
For this week i would love to share with you several things you can do to improve your self esteem. It is no doubt that maintaining a healthy self esteem in this era is not the easiest thing to do especially in your twenties. There is too much perfection (mostly fake perfection) and standards all around us.The feeling of inadequacy is becoming bigger with each day. Here are things you can practice daily to improve and get a healthy self esteem .
Emphasize positive features in others.
This practice not only rids you off jealously steadily but also allows others to emphasize on positive features of yours too. This improves your self esteem. Give genuine compliments are more worthy than pointless praises.
Recognize the needs of others and do no joke or mock one with lower self esteem.
This is referred to as bullying . Making someone weak wont make you any stronger . Making somebody feel less wont make you feel any better about your self. Each one of us is fighting a battle we may not know about. Helping people rise up is most likely to make you feel better about your self than pushing them down.
Provide family support .
Family is one hella groupa people we can be sure will pick us up whenever we fall. Family members will most likely compliment you and critique you honestly. Family is a solid source of love , compassion and support. Providing and receiving family support boosts our sense of meaningfulness and therefore boosts our self esteem.
Ask for forgiveness when appropriate .
Whenever you feel that you have done something wrong politely ask for forgiveness. The more you are at peace with the people around you the more good and at ease you are going to feel. Don’t be afraid to stand for your self BTW.
Keep fit and healthy .
Body image is also one of the things that lowers the self esteem of many. if you are one of these people , consider taking care of your health and keeping fit. This is an investment that wont only make you feel good about yourself but also increase your longevity. Mind you that good things take time and therefore allow the changes to take time and #enjoytheprocess
Look at your strong positive features .
We all have these. You may feel bad about not being the best athlete but you may be the best friends most of your friends have ever had. So take time to appreciate all the wonderful features you have. the combination of those features in you are what makes you you. Celebrate that.
Forgive your self.
As much we want to keep blaming ourselves for our past mistakes. Realizing that those were part of lessons in our lives , accepting them as a part of our past and moving on is a very important . By forgiving yourself , you are giving room for better things to happen.
Choose your friends .
Whoever said show me your friends and i will tell you who you are was the most correct person. Your friends affect how you feel and alter your whole perception of life .learn about the whole influence of friends on your productivity by clicking here.
Nourish your spiritual life .
While most of the above things may involve other people or outward factor , Spiritual life nourishes you from the inside. Taking care of your soul and working to fully connect with your soul , will give you a better understanding of yourself.
