(GivenUs.com) – With these trying times, self-care is super important. Part of that is understanding the true connection between self-value and self-worth. Here, Iyanla explains more about it.
Are you struggling with self-esteem issues? Here are some ways you can build yours and have a more positive outlook on life:
- Focus on your inner self. If you have low self-esteem, it’s often due to your inner voice dragging it through the ringer. Most people are quite hard on themselves. Give yourself a break. Remind yourself that you are worth it and you are smart and valued. You can conquer any obstacle life throws your way.
- Don’t stay in bad situations longer than needed. One thing that tears your self-worth down is being in a destructive relationship or negative situation. Mayo Clinic cites abusive relationships as one example. Another would be a job where you’re taken advantage of and you hate going to every day. Make positive changes and see where it takes you.
- Reaffirm the “I am” concept. Put positive attributes about yourself and your life behind the words, “I am.” For example: I am worth it, I am enough and I am a strong person. Telling yourself these positive words each day can really help boost poor self-esteem.
Sometimes just a few simple adjustments can turn a dismal outlook on life into a positive one. A few smart changes could boost your self-value and self-worth, helping you look forward to a positive outcome today and moving into the future.
