Here are some Easy Ways to Improve Your Self-Esteem Right Now:
Nobody cares about your problems.
Sure they pretend to, but that’s just them being nice. They have their own stuff to deal with which is often worse than yours, so don’t expect them to solve your issues for you or turn you into a priority of theirs anytime soon if ever. It’s easy to fall into the trap of believing that everyone will be there for you and only if you’re a decent human being they will stick around, but life is full of disappointments and we can’t always get what we want. Don’t rely on anyone else to make your life better and improve your self-esteem because there’s no guarantee they ever will or even can. So don’t expect any help from them and try to do things alone first before asking others for help. That way it’ll give them less reason to stalk you with their presence, which many people actually mistake as care and concern (when usually it’s boredom due to their own lives), instead of doing nothing like they usually do.
You’re Not Perfect and It’s Okay Hey guesses what?
You’re not perfect. No one is. Not even your parents, teachers or gurus are perfect in spite of their claims that they know everything about you and the world in general despite not knowing what it’s like to walk a mile in your shoes. Being aware of this fact will help you understand why others might dislike certain things about you while ignoring other aspects which you do consider undesirable but often get unnoticed by them because these flaws fall outside of their pattern of thinking. If you ever feel like nobody supports what you do or maybe they act like expecting too much from them, it must be time for an eye-opening self-evaluation session, so make sure to read the rest of the tips below! Says Paul Haarman.
You Are Not Your Faults
Some people are quick to point out others’ faults, but rarely do they manage to look at their very own that makes everyone think that deep down they’re hiding even bigger monsters. And it’s true, you are. We all have them, but the problem is most of us either try to hide or justify them by coming up with lame excuses for why our actions are justified because ‘that’s just the way we are’. But being aware of your shortcomings takes maturity and intelligence so before looking for external flaws within yourself understand why you might be acting weird in certain situations instead of fixing what can be fixed. You don’t need anybody else telling you how bad or good you may be, only you know the answer so listen carefully when your mind tells you something and learn from your own mistakes.
Make Sure to Take Care of Yourself
Nobody cares about you as much as you do, so don’t expect others to take care of you in a way that makes you feel good. It’s not their job to make sure that everything is okay with your life because they’re supposed to be living their own which means dealing with the problems they’ve created for themselves. If it seems like no matter how hard you try to cheer someone up or express how much they mean to you they never return the favor and aren’t willing to help when needed (unless it benefits them), then there’s a big chance they will do nothing but annoy and drain you over time. And if this person ever asks anything from you, then he or she does that because they believe that either you can solve their problem or because it benefits them in some way. Plus there’s a chance they never gave you the same respect and consideration back when you were much more helpful to them.
“One Remorseful Word Can Change a Life”
You don’t need to be sorry for anything, but neither do those who annoy and drain you on purpose or otherwise as long as they’re willing to change for the better. What matters is that after realizing what kind of person (or people) you’ve been dealing with all along, if ever, take action before things get worse and ask yourself whether it’s worth wasting your time and energy on such people. All relationships go through rough patches and its okay to let go of someone you’ve been with for a long time, but it’s usually better to cut contact when they’re causing more damage than good. Because if you keep trying to apologize about something that happened in the past or present then at some point others will just stop taking you seriously and start thinking that your flaws are much bigger than previously thought which means that either way, there’s a chance they won’t put much effort into helping you in the near future because your broken record annoys them.
Conclusion by Paul Haarman:
Your flaws are only as big as you want them to be or at least that’s what some people might think. But you have all the power in the world to change it even if this means accepting criticism from those who actually mean well because being aware of how others see you is crucial for becoming a better version of yourself.
