Beautiful Like Me: Building self Esteem
This week’s topic is “In your opinion, what is the best way to build self-esteem?” This topic is particularly hard for me because I am still trying to rebuild my own self-esteem. But, since I am sure that I have made others think with this project, its only fair that I torture myself and make myself think too. If you would like to participate in this weeks topic, please leave a link in the comments section to your post here, at Tricia’s or Amy’s place.
“Act as though what you do makes a difference. It does.”
Building self-esteem is like building anything else. It requires time, patience and either skill or directions. I am sure that there are a lot of people that have skill at building self-esteem. I am not one of those people, but they do exist. I require directions. Over the years, I have gathered some wisdom and thoughts from various people. But what I think works best is two things.
1. Do something that you are great at. This could be anything but being great at it is the requirement. Great can mean anything, as long as you think you are great at, that is what matters.
2. Do something that you can learn about. Self-esteem grows when you can see progress made. Again, this can be anything but preferably something that you enjoy. This way it keeps your interest and as you learn, you will enjoy it more.
These things show you that you are good at something but can learn to be good at other things. To me, there is no better way to build self-esteem. What do you think? What is the best way to build self-esteem? Write a post or leave a comment. Or do both!
