People with low self-esteem feel unlovable or incompetent. They are super sensitive to rejection signs and often feel they will make mistakes or do something embarrassing.

As much as this can result from people criticizing us, we are also one of our most severe critics. We beat ourselves up mercilessly when we find ourselves making an error in judgment or losing our self-control.

The truth is, when we perceive ourselves negatively, it becomes more difficult to believe that others can see us in a positive light.

How To Overcome Low Self- Esteem

The good news is that it is possible to overcome low self-esteem. Let us look at a few ways to do this.

Stop Listening to Your Inner Critic

Stop Listening to Your Inner Critic

The inner critic is that voice that continually nags us with loads of negative thoughts. You could hear thoughts like “Nobody likes you,” “When you talk you just make a fool of yourself,” or “You’re fat.”

One way to overcome it is to defy these thoughts. Write down your inner critic’s criticisms and write a more realistic and compassionate appraisal of yourself in front of them.

Start Practicing Self-Compassion

Self-compassion means treating yourself like a friend. It is a beautiful way to build more confidence in yourself.

Be kind in response to mistakes. Remember that imperfection is part of being human; it’s nothing to be ashamed of.

Stop comparing yourselves to others. Think about who you want to be, rather than worry about measuring up to the people. Be your own competition. Set goals that fit your values.

Live Up to Your Own Moral Code

Self-esteem is built on self-respect. If you live a life in line with your principles, you are more likely to respect yourself and feel more confident. For example, if looking  your best are your values, you will feel better if you eat well and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Do Something Meaningful

As humans, we feel good whenever we do something meaningful, taking part in activities that are larger than ourselves. An example is volunteering.
