Peoplewho have low self image, and low self esteem, are unhappywith whom they are in life. Things that are done well areoften taken for granted. Where as mistakes are heavilylooked upon. One’s position in life and previousexperiences can also add to negative feelings. Constantlybeing told you’re headed no where or that you’re nothingbut a failure can lead to a low self esteem and low selfimage.
There are many things that can be done to raise selfimage, and self esteem. Responding to criticism positively isvery important. If someone points out a flaw in somethingyou’ve done, strive to fix it.
They are not trying to belittleyou. They are just helping. Be positive and confident inyourself, and listen to your own opinions.
What you have tosay is just as important as anything else anyone has toshare. Hard work to improve the things you’re not good atis another way that can help you feel better about yourself.Finally always remember your only human, you can’t beperfect at everything you do.
The process that I havecreated to help resolve mental and emotional issuesconsists of two steps. First it is very important to get youremotions out. Expressing your feelings through poetry ordrawings are two ways to resolve mental and emotionalissues. If you don’t feel artistic, try to let your feelings outthrough other means.
Let your anger out on a punching bagor even a basketball court, rather than repressing it.Sigmund Freud labeled repression as the number onebodily defense mechanism against fear. Franklin D.Roosevelt once said “you have nothing to fear but fearitself.” Not letting your emotions out never allows you to befree of them, therefore hindering your happiness in life. Thesecond aspect of our process is to be happy. Do things thatmake you happy. If you think about it, when you’re happynothing really matters.
No matter how many times you havedone something wrong or failed when you’re happy thesethings don’t bother you. The second process that I havecreated is intended to lead others and myself to mental andemotional satisfaction. I think if you view the world with anoptimistic eye you can only receive satisfaction. Beinghappy with who you are as a person is very important. Asphony as it may sound I strongly believe that it is true.
Ifyou are happy with who you are there is no need to rob,steel, or put others down. If everyone was happy with whothey were, the world would be the ideal utopia, whereeveryone can achieve peace of mind.
