Encouraging Thoughts to Help Improve Your Self-Esteem Thoughts that inspire exploration and reflection (again, compliments to my beautiful therapist)
Happiness can be defined in many ways, but what IS it that gives us this wonderful sensation that emanates from deep within ourselves? The answer comes from deep within.
Self Esteem or Self Respect is not given to use through praise, gifts or attention. It’s about ourselves learning how to do things for ourselves, how to be responsible for who we are and for what we do, and it’s about gaining skills and respect for ourselves by living up to challenges.
RESPONSIBILITY is a combination of two words
RESPONSE and ABILITY…..able to respond to what happens not a victim to circumstances but able to make decision on our own.
When we sense that we are being able, we feel proud. In other words, WE are responsible for our own happiness which thrives when we stop wanting things outside of our control.
THINK!! How much do you let things outside of your control define your happiness? A good question to ask yourself, “Is this MY problem or someone else’s?”
How can you improve your self-esteem?
