Overcoming Low Self-Esteem
I remember sitting at the table one day after school in tears because someone had made fun of me that afternoon.
That wasn’t the only time my self-esteem took a hit.
Our self-esteem is often tested and sometimes it is torn down so hard that a person can suffer from low
Sometimes we can bounce back from low self-esteem after a quick pep talk, but sometimes we just can’t seem to
recover. Below are different ways to overcome low self-esteem.
One very important way to overcome low self-esteem is to take a hard look at where your low self-esteem came
from and why. Many times you can trace it back to your childhood: maybe a classmate made fun of your clothes or a
teacher told you, you were lazy.
It isn’t really important who planted the seeds, but that they were planted and now you need to uproot them! You
need to pull out all those negative feelings
about yourself and realize they are from years ago and have no relevance or power over you anymore.
Once you begin to tell yourself that who you are now is a strong confident person, those old feelings will begin
to disappear and stop having control over you.
Another way to overcome low self-esteem is to look at yourself and make some improvements, understanding that
needing to improve in an area or two does not make you a bad person. It makes you human and normal. Also understand
that this process is not pleasant but necessary. It also means you will probably fail before you succeed.
This brings us to another way, embrace, yes I said embrace failure. As crazy as this sounds, failure is progress
towards the person you want to be. You see we learn from our failures and grow and become better as long as we
don’t let it beat us. You must fail to grow and succeed which will take your self-esteem to new levels.
Another way to improve self-esteem is to always finish what you start, which I know is easier said than done.
But by finishing what you start, you learn you can do it, you are capable of doing it, again building up your
self-esteem. And as you build that up, you will learn to trust yourself.
Finally, surround yourself with people who truly love and support you. If you surround yourself with people who
tell you, you can’t then you won’t, but if you surround yourself with people you encourage you and congratulate you
when you do succeed you will want to continue to push to do well.
Low self-esteem is not easy to overcome, but with hard work and persistence you can do it. First take a look at
why your self-esteem is low, next let it go, next see what areas of yourself you can improve on, and make some
improvements, embrace failure it will help you grow as a person and give you opportunities to succeed, finish what
you start and surround yourself with people who love you and will support you with every step of your journey of
overcoming low self-esteem.
