Learning to love and accept yourself is the basis for building a happy life and cultivating solid relationships.
The ability to believe in yourself can make the difference between a happy person and a dissatisfied person. Often happy people are those who have less but believe more in themselves and vice versa.
However, it happens to everyone, in relation to a particular period of their life, to be unmotivated and neglected.
It is unlikely that other people will have the opportunity to value you if you are the first to value yourself. If you have a low opinion of yourself, it will inevitably be felt by others.
WHAT MISTAKES DO YOU MAKE VERY OFTEN?
Usually those who suffer from this "problem" see everything black, think they are not worth and do not deserve happiness and success. Think that your neighbor's grass is always greener than your own.
Low self-esteem does not depend on low value, but on the fact that you do not use the potential you have, you do not fully exploit your potential.
There are people gifted with a talent but they don't know it, because they don't see it, they are too busy feeling sorry for themselves and harming themselves. The fear of making a mistake is stronger than the desire to succeed.
Can it be improved?
With constant and dedicated work, self-esteem can also be trained slowly but it can be achieved. Experience plays a crucial role in this.
1. DON'T MAKE COMPARISONS WITH OTHERS
Each of us is unique in its kind, we must learn to value our peculiarities because it is they who make us special.
Parents often reflect this obsession with comparison with their children by discharging meaningless insecurities into them. Being the first in everything is not possible, but to participate and give your best yes, and it is precisely this principle that must be taught to the little ones.
2. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH POSITIVE AND SOLAR PEOPLE
The second step is to surround yourself with positive and sunny people who love you. People who sow discontent, negativity and create discomfort must be removed.
Have you ever wondered what qualities do you possess?
What goals have you achieved in your life?
Making a sort of positive list helps a lot! And it's never too late to move on! There are those who have been successful in work, those in love, those in their network of friendships and relationships, there are also those who have a special gift and do not know it yet.
3. LISTEN TO YOUR INTUITY
Asking others for help is important but to cultivate your self-esteem you have to learn to talk to yourself alone: listening to your intuition is the best choice especially if it comes from an inner awareness. Making decisions, from the smallest to the most important (think of the banal choice of restaurant on Saturday evening and the choice of going to live together or get married or to accept a job rather than another ..).
Accepting advice is fine but don't overdo it. Rationalizing always and in any case does not help, sometimes the best choices are made by listening to one's emotions and following the path, perhaps sometimes less convenient, but which leads to serenity.
4. GROW YOUR PASSIONS
Cultivating passions is another step to increase self-esteem: how many times do we say I don't have time, I don't want to, I'm tired ...
The passion for sport, rather than music, do-it-yourself, travel, must necessarily be cultivated because it enriches our person and allows us to be ourselves without restraints and limits.
Taking care of your image can complete the picture: doesn't the dress make the monk? Maybe that's not always the case. Finding a second skin where you can feel comfortable is a fundamental step.
Fashion suggests many paths, just like people, but we choose. How to appear to others and especially to ourselves.
Focusing on the right colors, perfumes, shapes that best represent us illuminates our face and beyond, improves mood and increases self-esteem.
There are so many ways to improve and believe in yourself.
The important thing is to start doing it!
