How To Build Self-Esteem


Self-esteem is often referred to as the inner voice of a person (or self-dialogue) that tells them if they are capable of achieving something. Self-esteem refers to how we view ourselves and how we perceive our capabilities.

Self-esteem does not always depend on your ability. Self-esteem often isn’t related to other people’s perceptions about you. Positive self-esteem is a positive outlook on life and one’s own abilities. This makes them more resilient and better equipped to deal with the ups and downs of life.

Demonstrating real achievement and ability in the areas of your life that are important to you builds self-esteem. Examples include: You can host more dinner parties if you are a great cook. Register for races and run for them if you are a good runner. Find opportunities and jobs that enhance your core competencies.

Low self-esteem can be caused by several factors

  • Parents (or other important people, such as teachers) who were very critical of their children’s happiness made it a difficult childhood.
  • A lack of academic achievement at school can lead to a lack of confidence.
  • Stressful life events such as financial troubles or relationship breakdowns.
  • A partner, parent, or career that treats you poorly is an indicator of abusive relationships.
  • Chronic pain, severe illness or disability that is ongoing.
  • An anxiety disorder, depression or mental illness can occur.

Self-Esteem: Where It Starts

As early as your birth, self-esteem can begin. It grows slowly over time. It can begin when a child feels loved and safe. Positive attention and loving care can help a baby start to feel secure. Babies then start to become independent as toddlers and young kids. When they are able to use their new skills, they feel better about themselves. Parents should pay more attention to their children and encourage them to try new skills.

You can build self-esteem by remembering that no one is perfect and that you can still be amazing, even with your flaws. When you feel down, focus on the positive things you can do for yourself. For example, how kind and friendly you are. If you are having trouble identifying your strengths, you can think back to compliments you have received in the past, or things you love about yourself. Next, set achievable goals for yourself to increase your self-esteem. If you want to improve your health, for example, start eating a healthy, balanced breakfast each week. You’ll not only be a better person if you set goals, but your self-esteem will increase when you achieve them.
