Self-esteem is increasingly identified as a fundamental pillar on the basis of psychological balance and good emotional management., So that it affects the well-being of people and a good way of being, being or feeling.
There are different ways to love little or nothing and not be like him. When we attribute facts to bad luck or circumstances, for example. The truth is, sometimes we don’t do things for ourselves, to take care of ourselves, to feel good, to love ourselves; and that can become a way to destroy us, to ruin us a little more as people.
From self-destruction to caring for self-esteem
There are many ways to destroy yourself, to hurt yourself without being seen as part of a pathology, but being a negative and dangerous thing. Let’s go over some ideas related to self-esteem.
1. Learn to accept us
We are unique and irreplaceable beings and we are constantly evolving and changing. Sometimes we end up with distorted images of ourselves and fail to integrate acceptance and recognition into the changes we make. We also don’t accept what we don’t like as the first step in changing it.
2. Try to be critical to the right extent
Some people are very harsh with self-criticism, which seriously affects their self-esteem. They are martyred for the decisions made, they are blamed for the unintended consequences and they keep holding these kinds of thoughts long enough to make them unbearable.
Finding balance in judging one’s own behavior is a skill that must be practiced and developed.
3. Perform frequent self-care actions
It is important to do this by separating self-care from the concept of selfishness.Clearly frowned upon and sometimes confused with that of egocentricity.
Being selfish is not always bad and taking care of yourself is essential, because if we don’t all do it, we expect others to do it, not knowing exactly when we need it most. We are talking about simple things that can be sophisticated, all that is needed: a quiet and unhurried breakfast, reading time, a shower other than a time trial, or a walk with enough time, can – be a relaxed conversation or whatever you know works wonders for you.
4. Promote actions to achieve our vital goals
Knowing what we want to accomplish at each stage of life and developing the plan of action to achieve it can be simple or very complex, but you have to stop to think about it, be responsible in the intermediate stages, chain actions. If that’s what you want to accomplish, keep going, don’t expect it to come alone.
5. Consider our priority needs from time to time
If we let ourselves be carried away by the urgency of the environment or others, sometimes our needs are left in a permanent queue and it’s never their turn, Unless we put them first. From time to time, you have to pay attention to it and restore the order of needs.
Assessment of the initial situation
And now come a few questions: What are you intentionally doing to feel comfortable in your own skin? How do you act and how do you speak? Are you consistent with your values and principles?
Inertia, the movement generated by the current that occurs around us, sometimes leads us behaviors that aren’t really what we want or what make us feel good. We have to stop and think about it, realize the most frequent thoughts and the language we use, because it influences those thoughts and the emotions that are generated.
Look at your internal messages, maybe they go along the lines of “there’s nothing else I can do” or “it’s not worth going against the grain”. But it’s about you, the most important thing in your life. If you don’t see yourself as important and you convince yourself that it is worth doing your best to be well, comfortable then you stop taking care of yourself, loving yourself, respecting yourself. – even and, without being fully aware of it, you start to self-destruct and, as a result, harm those around you.
It’s easy to get carried away by victimization and put oneself in the place of a passive subject, instead of considering oneself as responsible and taking initiatives in view of oneself, while feeling good, strong, capable; by learning from past mistakes to look at future opportunities. In short, by feeling that everyone has the power to influence what is happening around you.
We know that we are going through difficult times, bad experiences or mistrust abound and new complications appear every moment. The easy thing is to get carried away by discouragement and the tendency to think that there is nothing we can do, but … can we really do nothing?
Maybe it’s time to take care of yourself like never before, Strengthen true confidence and self-esteem, with conviction and on a daily basis. Unleash your potential and test the options in front of you. Live the times when things come out, whether good, regular, or bad. But be sure to do so, to try your options again. No one better than you to believe in yourself. Take care of your self-esteem, it’s a safe bet.
