Dealing With Low Self Esteem

 

The first step in dealing with low self-esteem is to identify what is making you feel bad about yourself.

 

 

 

 

What are the thoughts that you are having?

 

 

 

 

Is it that you are not good enough, or that you are fat, or that you are ugly, or that you are not smart, or that you are lazy, or that you don’t have money, or that you are poor?

 

 

 

 

These are just some of the thoughts that you may have.

 

 

 

 

You may also be having the thought that you are stupid, that you are not a good person, that you are not worth anything, or that you are not good at anything.

 

 

 

 

You need to make a list of all of the things that you are thinking about.

 

 

 

 

Once you have identified all of the thoughts that you are having, then you can start working on them.

 

 

 

 

The first thing that you want to do is to find out why you think those things.

 

 

 

 

This will help you to figure out how to change your thoughts.

 

 

 

 

You might be thinking that you are not good enough because you are overweight.,

 

 

 

 

That you are not intelligent because you are not getting good grades in school.

 

 

 

 

That you are not attractive because you have a pimple on your face, or that you are not successful because you haven’t found a job yet.

 

 

 

 

Once you have figured out what is making you feel bad, you need to figure out what you can do to change it.

 

 

 

 

You can start by doing something small like buying a new outfit.

 

 

 

 

Or by changing your diet, or by doing an exercise routine, or by joining a book club, or by talking to a friend who has been through similar problems.

 

 

 

 

You need to do something every day that will make you feel better about yourself.

 

 

 

 

If you can’t seem to come up with anything, then you need to seek out someone else to talk to.

 

 

 

 

You could call a counselor, or you could go to a meeting of a support group for people with the same problem as you.

 

 

 

 

Talking to someone else who is going through the same thing as you will give you hope, and it will make you feel better about your situation.

 

 

 

 

The second step in dealing with low self-esteem is to take action.

 

 

 

 

You need to find ways to make yourself feel better.

 

 

 

 

You need to take action every day, even if it is only small things.

 

 

 

 

If you don’t, then you will continue to feel bad about yourself.

 

 

 

 

You can’t change your situation unless you do something.

 

 

 

 

So, make sure that you do something every day.
