“To establish true self-esteem we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives.” – Denis Waitley
I believe that we are better if we focus on our actions here and now rather than thinking about old mistakes and disappointments all the time.
Self-esteem is the confidence and belief in ourselves, our subjective sense of personal worth.
People with high self-esteem cope with adversity more successfully. They have excellent coping skills and strive towards their dreams and aspiration.
People with low self-esteem give up easily as they are less resilient in terms of overcoming obstacles and more vulnerable to depression. They are less likely to believe in themselves.
The level of self-esteem can impact people’s mental health.
How to improve your self-esteem?
- learn to transform your negative thoughts into positive statements;
- cut yourself off the toxic contacts, approach people who inspire or challenge you;
- create boundaries that make you feel comfortable;
- Identify your strengths and special qualities;
Self-esteem has to do with what I think of me, not what anyone else thinks of me (Nathaniel Branden)
