How to improve my self-esteem
"It's a process "
How I did it:
I used to feel that I'm not pretty and not popular. I also felt dumb because I had low grades at school unlike my friends and my siblings. I could not walk without thinking that everyone is watching me and making fun of me...
Starting from 2008, I decided to challenge myself in places where I felt weak...I started going to the canteen at my university alone, eat alone, walk alone.I started realizing that no body is watching me cause no body actually cares.I mean people have better things to do than watching you or making fun of you...
My education at university helped me a lot too; people develop strong identities by learning more about life. I don't feel stupid or less smart anymore, because I started reading a lot and I learned a lot from reading...
I also started looking at the thinks that I am good at and developed them like writing, debating and making presentation for my classes. Many people around me admire me do you know why?? Because I admire myself. I am more attractive than I used to be 2 years ago because myself esteem is high and that is what draw people to me. I never thought that people around me would look up to me like they do now.
You don't need people to love you, all you need is to love yourself.
Lessons & tips: This quote should be enough:
Whoever you are, there is some younger person who thinks you are perfect. There is some work that will never be done if you don't do it. There is someone who would miss you if you were gone. There is a place that you alone can fill. ~Jacob M. Braude
