Self Esteem and Confidence
If you are experiencing low self esteem and confidence it is because you feel worthless, ashamed, guilty, useless, helpless or humiliation.
EVERY SINGLE HUMAN BEING AT SOME TIME OR ANOTHER IN THEIR LIFE HAS EXPERIENCED AT LEAST ONE OF THE ABOVE.
It is not the events which created these feelings that matter it is your reaction to these events that matter. In other words your attitude to them.
At some point in your life something happened that had a deep affect on you. A consequence of this thing that happened probably caused you to lose respect for yourself! You somehow gave it up. Let it go. Or you may have deliberately dissociated yourself from it. Why? because that something impacted greatly on your self worth. Since that event you have become a different person. More worried, more tense, more nervous, lacking in confidence and self-esteem.
Why are we all different? Why can't some of us deal with things as strongly and effectively as others?
Being bullied feels like a never-ending nightmare to some teenagers, but to others they go through the pain, shake it off and get on with their lives.
Being humiliated creates a life-long fear of being the centre of attention for some, but for others its an experience that they went through and which has now been forgotten.
Being rejected creates a feeling of uselessness for some, but for others an experience that makes them survivors.
Only you know the depth of pain and suffering that you are going through. You probably believe that you are the only person in the whole world who is experiencing what you are experiencing. Know that this is not true. There are many like you who are experiencing exactly the same. Sometimes worse.
You need to build up your self esteem and confidence! So from today you need to go on a journey of discovery and find two important things that you lost, gave up, discarded along the way. LOVE AND RESPECT for yourself. Find them, get them back because they are quite rightfully yours.
There are no greater things in this world than loving and respecting yourself.
When you begin to love and respect yourself you will begin to love and respect the world around you. The very things that create peace and harmony in the world around you.
I want you to promise yourself one thing from today
Every day when you wake up you will tell yourself I WILL LOVE AND RESPECT MYSELF TODAY AND NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, I WILL NEVER EVER PUT MYSELF DOWN. MY SELF ESTEEM AND CONFIDENCE ARE WHAT DRIVES ME FORWARD IN THE WORLD.
During the course of the day you will say the same thing whenever you consciously think about it. Many times. Last thing at night when you go to bed you will say the same.
From today you will begin to 'big' yourself up. Focus on your achievements, problems you have overcome, when you helped others, compliments you have been given, times when you felt on top of the world.
From today you will allow no-one, no experience nor no-thing to ever put you down, ever again.
From today you will begin to take control of your life. No more low self esteem or low confidence.
From today you will begin to change your beliefs about who you are. A wonderful, amazing person, who has great potential. Maybe, a person who has been given a gift to help others who are experiencing what you experienced. Go and be someone's hero and never, ever be a victim ever again.
