Improve Self-esteem – Spirit Bear Coaching

Improve Self-esteem

Life Coaching in Tunbridge Wells, Kent starts with loving and valuing yourself. Low self-esteem can sabotage our every effort at happiness while high self-esteem can be our greatest ally. Fortunately there are many ways to boost your self-esteem, including these:

Express yourself. By this I mean two things:

  • First – to express yourself creatively, through art, writing, song, crafts, cooking, drama, play. Creative expression is a basic human need that often goes neglected. Without it we may feel trapped, alienated, and unfulfilled, all of which can manifest as low self-esteem.
  • Second – to express those thoughts and feelings to other people that you’ve bottled up inside. As I’ve found repeatedly life coaching in Tunbridge wells, Kent unexpressed emotions wear people down and make them feel unsupported by the very person who should care for us most: ourselves!

Know thyself. Be honest with yourself about who you are — including your failings and flaws. Much low self-esteem is rooted in delusion. We may dislike parts of ourselves because we’re dishonest about what we’re seeing or think we should be seeing. Then we judge ourselves based on those false impressions: “I’m a bad mother…child…employee…spouse.”

Likewise we often overlook those aspects of ourselves for which we should be most proud. Taking an honest and unflinching account of who you really are, warts and all, allows you to stand firm in the whole of your being, for better and worse. And that makes you immune to the judgment of others.

Pamper yourself. One of the most enjoyable lessons I get to impart Life Coaching in Tunbridge wells, Kent is that treating yourself with random acts of kindness has the same effect on you that it has on anyone else: it makes you feel good. And because it’s you who’s giving you that, it boosts your self-esteem. P.S. – Pampering others has the same self-esteem boosting benefits.

Live life purposefully manifesting, through focusing!

’til we meet again,

Walk in Beauty;
Walk in Peace.

Inspirational. So true. Sometimes we need reminders of truths we know inside but forget in hurly burly of life.

Hi Angela,
Worthlessness is such a common wound. It effects our whole self image. So glad the article is up lifting, we all could do with slowing down a bit and being present.
