Self-esteem is all about how good or bad you feel about yourself. This article will take you through ways you can improve your self-esteem.

What is self-esteem?

Self-esteem is a measure of self-worth. Self-esteem is how good or bad you feel about yourself. A low self-esteem can affect your life negatively whereas having a high self-esteem will take you to a good place to be, in your life.

Having a low self-esteem can lead to the following –

**you feel that you are not good enough
**you blame yourself for everything that happens
**you think negatively
**you become very sensitive
**you unhappy about yourself
**you become depressed

When depression deeply sets in your mind your just may end up hurting yourself physically too.

How to improve your self-esteem?

**The very first thing to do to improve your self-esteem is to improve your self-worth. Feel good about yourself. Love yourself and be proud of who you are.

**If you have done well then take a minute to appreciate yourself and let the feeling sink in. Pat yourself on your back for a task well done. In fact write it down in a notebook and read it when you think that you are no good.

**Do not let what others say affect you in any way. There are people who always say things because they simply want to put you down and make you feel uncomfortable. Do not pay attention to such people.

**Do not blame yourself if something goes wrong. Look into what actually happened and analyze the situation instead of just blaming yourself.

**If you are stressed out at work or at home just take a minute to breathe deep, relax and clear your mind. Do not let stress affect you. When you are stressed out you can feel overwhelmed and negative thoughts can creep in.

You may end up blaming yourself and think that it is because of you that things did not go the way it should have. You may also start blaming yourself for something that is not your fault. This will be a big blow to your self-esteem.

Good points, Vellur and an uplifting share. I go about life filling in the gaps at home and workplace - just act my role as a co-creator. Living within means helps a lot too. One should live for own satisfaction, but help others in need. I have seen few going about their lives unobtrusively but adding value to those around them - siva

It is not always easy for some especially those who may have been abused in one way or the other. But with hope and faith in God, everyone can overcome any insecurities . Thanks for sharing.
