If you have self esteem and you feel like you’re being unfairly judged or devalued, you may be wondering what you can say to yourself to let yourself know that you’re not alone.
Here are some ways to say it: I feel you.
Let’s face it: You probably feel that way too.
Your self esteem has suffered because of some perceived lack of accomplishment.
You want to talk about it, so tell others that you are proud of who you are and that you don’t need to take things personally.
I can relate.
It’s hard to hear others tell you that you deserve to be happy, but it’s much easier to say, “I’m proud of myself.”
If you are feeling low, ask yourself why.
You might find yourself feeling embarrassed and self-conscious.
But if you’re feeling guilty or ashamed, it may help you feel better.
If you feel you’re losing your self-esteem, ask if there are any other ways to help yourself feel better, such as by being kind to yourself, by talking about the positive things you’re doing and by being aware of your own strengths.
I feel that, too.
I often feel guilty for being self-critical.
But this can also make me feel that I’m too self-absorbed, and that I should focus on the negatives.
So when you’re struggling, tell yourself, “This isn’t just me; this is how I feel about myself.
I am a person, too.”
If I feel I’m losing my self-confidence, I may want to ask myself, “Why do I feel so ashamed?”
If you’re worried that you might feel self-harming or self-pitying, talk to someone to talk through the issue.
When you’re talking to someone about self-love, ask, “Do you feel guilty or angry that I don’t love myself enough?
How do I be more self-accepting?”
It’s easier to talk this through with someone who loves you.
If it feels too overwhelming to talk to your loved ones, try asking a friend to talk with you.
It can feel like the conversation is about your feelings and you’re just not listening.
Talk about your self esteem.
Tell a friend about how you feel about yourself.
If your self respect is low, you might want to try asking someone else to do the same.
Ask someone who is close to you or someone you admire, or someone who cares about you.
You can ask the person what they think about your feeling of self-doubt, and share the feelings they have.
If they say something supportive, you can share it with them.
You don’t have to feel guilty about feeling self-confident, but you can acknowledge that you feel self confident too.
If someone tells you that self-respect is the best self-help you can have, that you need to make it your priority to make yourself better, and if that person has self-discipline and self esteem problems, ask how you can help yourself to reach this goal.
You may feel like a loser or a failure if you feel that you can’t be proud of your achievements.
So, talk about how your self love will help you be better at making sure that you reach your goals.
But talk about the good things that you have achieved, too!
When you talk about self esteem to others, be aware that your self admiration may be a reflection of your self shame.
But it’s also a reflection that you’ve had to work hard to be confident, to be self-aware, and to love yourself.
So you might be able to talk yourself into believing that you want to be more confident, more self aware, and more loving yourself, so that you’ll be able more easily reach your self worth goals.
If self esteem seems low, talk with your partner or friends about how to make your self confidence and self love stronger.
If there are people around you who feel the same way, talk more openly about your situation with them and ask if they can help you with the process.
The process of making your self self esteem stronger is really about taking responsibility for your own life.
That means that you may need to talk more about how the problems you have can be worked out, so you can become a better person.
