How can we cultivate self esteem and support others to do the same?
Aug 28, 2020
As we get older, we are navigating so many life situations all at once. Because of this, we will filter out information based on our core beliefs, hence it is important to work on changing how we see ourselves.
We need to develop a healthy self- esteem, to live fulfilling and loving lives.
Make time to schedule self esteem work.
Here are 6 Things to help with self esteem
Write down positive things about yourself, which help you see your positive traits.
I AM statements are powerful eg I AM generous
Stop the inner critic.
Our minds run away with ourselves. When it becomes too much we need to just say stop!
Stop negative evaluations eg: “ I should have done this or that.”
Stop labelling yourself negatively. When something happens, stop saying, “ I am hopeless.”
Surround yourself with nurturing people
When you are feeling fragile, it is important to be around people you feel emotionally safe with, so you can continue to rebuild your self-esteem.
Create a positive journal
Focus on our own steps, work and goals. Comparison to others, will not help lift self-esteem.
