Working on Low Self-Esteem!โค

Related image

You really are good enough, pretty enough, smart enough, strong enough and you know what? You need to start believing those things about yourself because it’s true! People can encourage and compliment you all day long but until you start believing it about yourself for yourself then your confidence and self esteem will never get to where it needs to be. So with that being said, today is another day to create a list but instead of just reading, I want you to actually do this in your personal time when you get a chance. Write down five things you L O V E about yourself and if you don’t want to write it then just think about it!

It is so easy to notice the things you love about other people but what about you?? And I don’t get the wrong idea here; I’m not encouraging cockiness but for the ones who struggle with low self-esteem issues .. I want to help you! Self-Love is such an ongoing process and it is so important !! When you’re able to love yourself, you respect yourself so much more. It’s just easier to walk away from things that stop serving you growth and give more time to the things and people that do! So, I made my list of five things I love about myself. This was such a positive, personal exercise of both self love and self care! You should try it.

Okay.. so here’s my personal list ๐Ÿ‘€ let’s dive right into this!๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’›

1. Friendly Personality

I’m a friendly person! I’ve always been that way and honestly I think I get that characteristic from my mom. I don’t meet too many strangers unless I just really don’t feel like dealing with people that day haha and yes, sometimes I get in those moods but for the most part I am probably one of the nicest people you will ever on this side of earth and I’m not ashamed to say that ๐Ÿ™‚ The world needs more FRIENDLY people if you ask me! I get tired of running into semi-friendly, fake, rude, hateful, mean and hard people. So I’mย always letting my friendly little light shine.

2. Encouraging Spirit

ย Encouraging people is something that feels and comes so natural to me, I swear. A lot of personal things that I’ve been through in my life has a lot to do with it. I know what it’s like to be at theย bottom and feel like you don’t have the support or encouragement that you need to go keep going. Therefore, I desire to push people into greatness any way that I can !! ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

3. Sense of Humor

Besides being one of the nicest people you’d ever meet, I’m also probably one of the silliest! I love laughter. I love laughing til my stomach hurts from laughing so hard! Sometimes, I can be a complete goofball and most of the time that’s how I get through most of my days! (Work Days Especially) I’m thankful that being silliness is a part of my personality because people with those dry sense of humors and dry personalities kill me … Oh my gosh. I cannot stand it. The dryness alone will suck the fun right out of things.

4. Creative

This is a part of me that I love; creativeness !! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve always been a crafty, maybe a little artistic but I didn’t realize how creative I was or how creative I could be until last year when I developed a hobby of making burlap wreaths, tie blankets, bow ties, hair bows and personalized canvases !!! To make that stuff is time consuming but it’s {.F U N.} and relaxing!!

5. Different

One thing I don’t try to do is keep up. I do my own thing, stay in my own lane and ride my own wave. I could care less if people like how I move. I like what I like. A picky eating, thrifty shopping, friendly, gospel music loving, strawberry lemonade drinking, sarcastic, crafty human being I am!! haha. Being myself is so much more fun than trying to fit in with everybody else! ๐Ÿ™‚ย

How cool is it that the same God, who created the mountains, oceans, and galaxies, looked at you and though the world needed one of you too? Learn to embrace yourself just the way you are and love who God created you to be!ย 

I really hope you take time to engage in this personal activity of self-love & self-care. It will help improve your self-esteem. Sending lots of love and positive vibes your way! Be great, be happy and be free in yourย authenticity!! Xx!!

-Jessica

  1. This is great! And I really needed to read it tonight so thank you. An early therapist taught me about affirmations and they have helped me in the past. I hadn’t thought about them in a while and this morning I did. Sorta/kinda the same idea you have here. Here’s one version of mine: I’m a kind, caring, compassionate person. It used to be longer, alas, I cannot remember the rest of it now……

    Here’s some other things I love about myself just off the top of my head: I’m a great cook. I’m a fairly good flute player. I love to write!! I love my dark brown eyes. I love helping people. I love teaching people. I love my language abilities. wow…..I guess I really am alright!!

  2. Nice post Jessica,

    you are positive person, and with that as you said very creative. Positive thoughts can bring us a lot of benefits.People who like to laugh, they are in most cases very healthy people, because their body is full of hormones of happiness ๐Ÿ™‚

    Stay positive

  3. I hadnโ€™t realised I was living with low esteem until progressional scooped me up 18 months who and shuffled me off to some amazing counsellors…
    I use the plural term because I found when the first batch of sessions finished, I wasnโ€™t ready to fly without a wingman.

    A years worth of self esteem work and learning the signs of those characters who may not in fact have my wellbeing at the heart of their motives when spending time with me, has been the best thing I ever did.
    Oh, behind having my kids ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒธ

  4. Have this post saved because itโ€™s so perfect!! This should be the intro to a book. Self-esteem and anxiety have been struggles of mine for a while now. Itโ€™s funny because we often look for approval from elsewhere but the only way to gain true self-esteem is to believe those things we crave approval for from ourselves. I totally did your exercise and what I noticed is that some of the things I love about myself are not the same ones that I crave approval for. When I focus on myself, the loved aspects are the traits I hold. When I compare myself to others and look for approval, itโ€™s the physical beauty. But now I know my strengths and where to put my effort in!
