I realised my low self esteem was related to my depression, because I had such a low outlook on life I didn’t think too much of my self either. I had to teach to experts something in an area they are very good in today and usualy I’m very shy, but today instead of backing away I felt a lot more confident.
I’ve changed my diet, tried mirror work, yoga, self help books, letting go off negative self talk, I listen to uplifting music and not metal, I’m having treatment to get rid of my acne/scars, I’m going to parties with people I hardly know to build confidence, I’m not letting people get to me anymore because I know I am a good person and I can be strong, talented, funny, witty, lovely and a really good friend so I have nothing to be ashamed of. It took a long time to feel that way. Today I was talking to a georgous guy! (who was taken) but I held a conversation with him, I’d usualy would be extremely shy of good looking guys and can’t think of a thing to say and today it was the other way around and I was asking him stuff.
I definately feel closer to completing this goal than ever.
