You are a wonderful individualized expression. We were all born to express in our own way. You may not look like some model in a magazine or you may not have a million dollars but you are wonderful just the same. And, you can learn to love yourself – just the way you are. After all, you have many unique attributes that were given to you. There is not another person in the world like you. You are special and unique and you must value the uniqueness that makes you – you. In this article, I will provide you with tips on how to love yourself and improve your self esteem. Let’s begin.
Accept yourself as you are. You are wonderful. You have been blessed with so many wonderful assets. Look at yourself and say, I’m attractive, whole and complete and then write all of these positive traits on a piece of paper.
Practice being kind to yourself. Give yourself praise instead of criticism. When you do something good, be proud of your accomplishments. Let’s say you get a promotion on your job- instead of complaining that it should have been more, congratulate yourself for the promotion.
Improve yourself. Next, you need to look at the things about you that you need to change. You may just be surprised at how much a new haircut or style will help. You may eve decide that you need a little makeup or some new duds. But, take action. Make you the best that you can possibly be. This will certainly make you feel better about yourself.
Look deep inside yourself and think about things going on in your mind that are holding you back. For instance, if you experienced a troublesome childhood, an abusive relationship, a divorce, death of a loved one, etc. then you have to get past the pain and on to the healing. Make up your mind, right now, to forgive the person or situation and move on. Holding grudges against people holds you back from accomplishing absolute good. For those of you that have a hard time doing this, consider seeing a counselor to help you work through whatever you need to work through.
Get an attitude change. Think about the person that you want to be and then become it. Buy some books and tapes to help you improve your self esteem. Find and listen to motivational speeches that inspire you to be better. Choose a realistic improvement plan and work that plan until you become the best that you can be.
