Mirror, Mirror, Who Do I See? How Would You Rate Your Self-Esteem?


Self-Esteem

What is it?

Do I have enough?

How can I have more of it?


There are many definitions of self-esteem. Essentially, self-esteem is the value that we subjectively place on ourselves. Other affiliated words include self-confidence and self-regard.


Do you….

  • Use a negative tone and language when you talk about yourself?

  • Second guess yourself?

  • Feel negative emotions towards yourself and/or others (high anxiety, sadness, anger, and/or aggression)?

  • View life in a negative way?

  • Become overly clingy in relationships?

  • Act overly sensitive to criticism?

  • Seek validation of your own worth from others and/or from objects?

  • Overinflate yourself to hid insecurities?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then your concept of self maybe at risk.


How does someone strengthen their self-worth?

BY:

  • Believing in one’s abilities!

  • Changing one’s vocabulary (eliminating negative connotations)!

  • Using more optimism!

  • Take it easy on yourself; patience is key!

  • Maintaining healthy boundaries with others!

  • Accepting one’s positive and areas in need of improvement (see how I didn’t say weaknesses)!


Are you ready to find your inner potential and believe in your self-worthiness? Give us a call to begin your self-discovery.
