How to improve self esteem? Achieving good self-esteem is at the core of a healthy mind. As well as being important for a happy life.
If you’re suffering with low self-esteem are you having difficulties relating to people? As well as moving forward in life?
Unfortunately, low self-esteem leads to long term problems such as abusive relationships, fear, anxiety and depression.
Ways of rebuilding your damaged self-esteem
Evaluating the Problem
Everyone experiences some self-doubt occasionally. But if you’re finding that your inner voice is critical, is it preventing you from achieving your goals?
Being mindful of your Inner voice
Take a step back by evaluating what you’re telling yourself. Does your inner voice assume the worst about every situation? Blaming you when things go wrong? The best way forward is by becoming aware of the patterns of these thoughts and changing them.
Investigating the Source
Do you know where your low self esteem is coming from? Usually it begins in childhood or after a destructive relationship. In short, because of unmet needs or negative feedback from others. In addition, abusive behaviour or negative life events can all play a part in the problem.
As a therapist, my role with clients is helping them in uncovering the cause of their low self-esteem. Thereby conquering these issues through hypnotherapy and discovering the source and changing these patterns.
Awareness is the key to changing your self esteem. Importantly turning your inner voice from a negative one into a positive one. From an enemy into a friend. Seeing a therapist may prove useful in challenging your old negative thought patterns. As well as replacing them with new, more helpful ones.
Set small goals and reward yourself for meeting them. Discovering what you’re offering the world and helping others is a great esteem builder. Focus on experiences instead of appearances.
In addition, discover what you’re really capable of. A coaching session may help you take some really positive and practical steps. In short, changing your life and improving your confidence.
Surround yourself with positive people who want the best for you. And remove sources of negativity from your life. Furthermore, looking after yourself and reconnecting with your passions. Be brave and challenging yourself to do more. The more positive feedback you get, the better you will be feeling.
A lot of self-esteem problems stem from the inability to deal with fear or uncertainty. Perhaps the desire to achieve perfection. No one is perfect and everyone has doubts, but you can learn to live with that and be happy. Instead of comparing yourself to others, focus on creating a happier, healthier you.
