MY SELF ESTEEM DISAPPEARED ... I DONT KNOW HOW TO INTERACT
Hey dolls , Today's article is based on how you can gain your self worth and respect as an individual.
English oxford dictionary defines self respect as - Pride and confidence in oneself; a feeling that one is behaving with honour and dignity. I believe that self-respect is that inner deeper feeling we have about ourselves. Believing that we can have that power and knowledge as a women. Individuals need to also understand that self- respect is earned it's an 'inside job' that no body else can do for us. It's not something we can buy but its something we earn, How do we earn it? .... well having a vision is key , writing down your core values mindfully creating your life and simply reacting to your circumstances. Knowing who you are and what you want. Choosing your priority's wisely and working on them , also make sure its something that's going to have a positive impact on your life or career . Taking action its simple. Do what you've set yourself to do. Our minds have a big impact on what we think and how we think so ignoring your thoughts is essential because it's one of the main reasons why we avoid taking action ( and therefore lose self-respect) Its the negative thoughts, limiting your thoughts and narrowing them. Don't listen because it will not only make you lose respect for your-self but it will make you unsuccessful , it will point out all the reasons why you cant be successful and all the potential negative consequences of your actions.
I believe that it's possible to experience self- esteem while having very little self- respect. In fact , when other people respect us but we don't respect ourselves , it's very difficult to let that positive attention in . It's not until we truly love and respect ourselves , that we can begin to believe that we are worthy of another person's love and respect.
One key message I would like to leave with the girl power movement member's and anyone else reading this article is, the next time you say yes to someone when you really want to say no, maybe your respecting them or scared of their reaction. Be aware of that because your sending the wrong feeling or you may be teaching the person that it's ok to take you for granted and treat you poorly. The next time you are spoken in a wrong or disrespectful manner and you choose to accept that by staying silent rather than standing up with yourself and speaking your truth, Remind yourself that you can indeed make another choice and teach that person to treat you differently.
The only actual thing we can change is besides living within us - such as our choices ,our attitude towards our selves and life in general , our decision making - We can then come out of our feelings of 'Victim' acknowledging that we are capable of taking control of many aspects of our lives
Remember - you alone are in control of yourself and of your life choices.
