How Do You Cope With Not Feeling Self Confident About Your Self?

I've been told since a child that I wasn't good enough even in school had trouble succeeding however I was smart enough to go every other day and maintain a decent grade..
Loved ones don't realize the damage that cause for the words they use on us.. we take their words for gold..
But listen the word isn't gold. It's just their opinion. ..
Please keep let that sink in your head deep! When they start telling your crap like that.. that's just one person's opinion...
Your opinion your matters the most about yourself so be nice you are what you think....
You have to try to learn to like yourself to begin with.. then start working on self-love..
If you love yourself people will see it show..
Beauty comes from the inside.
You can have a face like a dog but if your personality is beautiful you'll be a beautiful person inside and on the outside..

Haleigh, I am also not a person with high self esteem. I always think the worst of myself. But there is one thing I can say, specifically about beauty. Many people out there look at a woman and say wow, stunning etc. I have never felt that. To me the beautiful people are the ones I work with everyday and that I get to know better. A person who evaluates who you are based upon what they see the first time they meet you is worthy of contempt. Their opinion is worth squat. The person whose opinion matters is the person who knows you (as much as you allow) and still thinks you are beautiful. Beauty grows on a person. That is what counts and what lasts.

I have days with feeling of low self esteem. Realize that they are thought programmed in your brain. Validate that. Then use positive affirmations on a daily basis to combat that. You are unique and special. There is no one else on this planet with the same dna as you. Go out and use your gifts to help others

I saw meditation ina couple posts. I would add it to your self care tool box. Not because it will solve all your problems but it has helped me.

If you made it that far your confidence is uphill. Don't slide back down. Keep fighting up and forward. What brought you up is still there to keep you in that direction. Put a little celebration in each landmark. I use popsicles. Use what rewards you. For big jumps, use bigger rewards. Pat yourself on the back, shoulders, or head. Do a little jig. Put some love to yourself. Be Loved
