Heey!!😁 How are you doing? I’m so happy to share this with you. I’ll start by defining what low self-esteem is.
Low self-esteem is when you don’t THINK good and highly of yourself, it is lack of confidence in your ability or who you are. Low self-esteem says “I’m not good enough, I’m not beautiful or handsome enough, they are better than me, I’ll never get anything right, I’ll never be accepted”. This is a very wrong way to THINK of yourself.
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying that “Life starts in the mind” and it’s true! In Proverbs 23:7a says… “For as a man thinks in his heart so is he!”. Meaning that, I can weigh the quality of your life from how you think! So this leads me to my very first point on how to overcome this low self-esteem thing…
• CHANGE YOUR MINDSET ABOUT YOURSELF: This is the first and most important amongst the How’s I’ll be listing. So someone might ask, how do I change my mindset? Here’s the answer: UNDERSTAND that you are LOVED by the GOD (the only one I’m sure He’s opinion matters more than anyone in this world). Psalms 139:24a says… For I am FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY MADE by GOD😀. This just got me excited because I just know I’m ENOUGH!! Why? Because He took out time to create me and you uniquely 😅. So this is enough to change your mindset totally! Know your worth from God’s word because He created you, He’s the only one that can tell you your worth!
• BUILD ON YOUR STRENGTHS: Yes, the same way we all have weaknesses, we have Strengths too. It could be writing, it could be administration, it could be organising, it could be your talents too. Find them and build on them! Yes it’s possible to build on your Strength so much that your weaknesses will not be visible anymore. Develop yourself intentionally!
If you get this two right and stay on them, you’ll be amazed! First, daily renew your mind through God’s word. Secondly, daily build your Strengths/talents/potential. I hope this blessed you? Don’t forget to share this with someone that needs to see this. You can also tell me how you overcame low self-esteem if you once felt like that. I love you 😘
