50 Ways To Boost Self-Esteem

50 Ways To Boost Self-Esteem | Uncustomary

Self-esteem is the feelings of confidence we have in our own abilities and worth, and they’re more likely to come from external forces than within. For example, your self-esteem can be more easily damaged by another person’s negative comment about you. Many people grow up with constant criticism, bullying, judgment, and trauma that has programmed them to have low levels of self-esteem. Low self-esteem holds you back in every single area of life. You’re less likely to find a partner, get a promotion, and generally be happy. If you don’t feel like your self-esteem is high — like through the roof high — then you need to spend some time working on it. You deserve to think highly of yourself, and you deserve to have that self-esteem reserve built up like the tallest bunker ever so no one’s mean judgment about you will ever make it over to affect you.
