Rate Your Self Esteem
© Dr. Dorene Lehavi, Ph.D.
Negative self talk is the best way to keep your self esteem
on the low end of whatever scale you use.
Many people give themselves messages throughout each day
that they are a loser, stupid, foolish, inadequate. You may
add your own words. If a parent said those things to a
child regularly, what chance would that child have of a good
sense of themself, in other words, good self esteem?
Think of yourself as your own child. Everyone makes
mistakes; some days just feel down and everything goes
wrong. The secret is to know that the YOU inside is always
good, intelligent, caring, talented, lovable and worthwhile.
Add your own words to this list and replace your negative
self talk with these words. Don't base your opinion of
yourself on the things that don't work well on any given
day. Love and acceptance of yourself unconditionally is the
secret to having self esteem.
At the same time devote yourself to personal growth and
improvement. As a bonus, develop the ability to laugh at
yourself; If you learn to do these things, not only will you
have good self esteem, but others will find you much more
pleasant to be around. They may even follow your example.
