If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! Sharebar One can guess that social hierarchy begins at school where peer boundaries are set, and thus begins the formation of unusually contrived rules to define kids. Here you have the upper class of popular kids, your studious unpopular ones, and the typical tag-along spectators. When the school starts, it becomes an unforgiving jungle … and survival is the key.While pacifism is an ideal notion, it loses its grip in this brutal playground war that takes place almost daily at school.

Building Self-Esteem

Building self-esteem requires nothing less than a willingness to develop and nurture a working relationship with yourself.This may seem like a tall order at first, but in reality it’s A LOT simpler than you may realize.If you stop and think about it, all of the best relationships in your life are built on 4 basic components:HonestyAcceptanceTrustLoveTurn these components into action steps for yourself, and you’ll be well on your way to improving your self-image and increasing self-confidence by reclaiming your personal power—which is key to building self-esteem.So if you find yourself needing a little (or a lot!) of self-esteem help at this point in your life, following the 4 steps below will provide the boost you need to put you on course…Step 1: HONESTY● Be open and honest with yourself.Give up lying to yourself.In building self-esteem, you must be willing to explore and recognize all the self-delusions and self-deceiving notions that have crept into your life.Boldly accept, without judgment, how you feel in any given moment (unhappy, discontent, angry, sad, grief-stricken, etc.) And know that it’s OKAY to feel what you are feeling in that moment. Also know that admitting that you feel powerless and need help is THE most courageous act of honesty there is.When you are able to admit how you really FEEL and consciously acknowledge and internalize those feelings, you are being true to yourself.Self-honesty is always expansive, energetically. In learning to be true to yourself, you are taking the first empowering step to not only building self-esteem but to taking back your power to transform your life.Step 2: ACCEPTANCE● Accept “What Is” in your life.Stop rationalizing, pretending or denying the circumstance of your life.If you can…—acknowledge and accept that a situation or circumstance in your life no longer serves you or has changed—even though you may not like or approve of it.And if you can…—accept that change as an indication that things will never be the same again and now need to be different, you are seeing things as they really are.The same holds true in relationships.When you consciously acknowledge that someone’s feelings have changed or accept that YOUR feelings have changed, you are stating the truth of “what is.” it is also a sign that it’s time for your life to expand and to see it as a golden opportunity.Everything happens for a reason…Welcomed or not, every ending, no matter what it is, or how tragic or desperate you judge it to be, is always a new beginning holding seeds of new and better possibilities for your life.Holding this perspective builds self-esteem rather than diminishes it.Facing the truth of any situation in this way, strengthens you and ultimately sets you free to consider and explore new opportunities and new directions. You are empowered to move forward, to follow a new course, to take different action, and make different choices which in the end, (although you may not believe it at the time) serve you and everyone else involved—best.● Accept who you are EXACTLY as you are.Give up judging, punishing, or making excuses for yourself.Instead acknowledge that you are powerful BECAUSE you can make choices Continue reading
