Self-esteem issues are common nowadays due to the many standards set by other people. One good example of a group that lacks self-esteem are women who are a bit curvy or full figured. The media has set the standard for a beautiful woman to be thin light-skinned with long hair. Positive Affirmations are one way to help restore self-esteem. They might be obvious truths, but when you lack self– esteem they do not sound so real. Positive affirmations are the solutions for all kinds of self-esteem issues.
Positive affirmations to restore self-esteem
- I am an individual, free to choose and decide what I want.
Self- esteem issues build up due to fear of what other people think. Understand that you are a unique individual. What you prefer is different from what others like. It does not mean you are wrong, and that is why you have the liberty to choose.
- I value and love myself just the way I am
If you believe in a higher purpose then you know there is a reason we are all the way we are. Genetically everyone is different based on their DNA. You cannot be like another person despite how much you hate yourself. Accepting and valuing yourself is the most important thing to do. The differences in the world are what creates diversity. Always make the positive affirmation as you go about your day.
- I take others as they are in turn they take me as I am
It is surprising to know people judge who you are and what you stand for from how you treat others. If you learn not to judge others for their shortcomings, people will accept you too with your misgivings. The reason you are probably having esteem issues is because you think people do not like you. That may not be the case they may just be afraid of your judgments.
- What others say does not affect me as long as I believe in myself.
It has always been pointed out you cannot please everyone. This statement is dead on true. Some people like cinnamon others like ginger but they are all spices. In the same way, not everyone will agree with you. The reasons will vary from having a different opinion to simply not liking you. It may seem like a don’t care attitude but it is not. Disagree with others peacefully and make peace with the fact that nay Sayers will be there.
- I am solution oriented, and I look for ways to solve my problems.
Some of the self- esteem issues people experience in the work setting are from the inability to contribute to the job. The fact that you were hired in that place proves you are capable of doing the expected. You need to affirm positively to yourself the much you can do. Instead of shying away in your cubicle talk to your colleagues and ask for insights in problems you experience. Your desire to give a solution will not you allow sinking into a pity party.
- I do not criticize myself. Instead, I cheer myself on
No one will ever have your back more than yourself. It is the reason you cannot afford to have that negative voice in you. Only you understand your convictions which mean you the only one who can support yourself fully. It comes after making peace with the idea that not everyone will support you.
- Self-confidence is important for how I view life.
Protecting your confidence guards your self-esteem. If there are things you don’t like about yourself and you can change, make changes. You are not doing it for others you are doing to attain your comfort. Identifying your points of strengths is good for your self-esteem. In case team-work is needed, do not shy away. Make use of your strong points. The beauty about strengths they overshadow weaknesses.
Self-esteem is not something to be solved in a day. Not for everyone. It is a process to work on. Always ensure you have the positive affirmations relevant in your life. The affirmations should be in present statements. They should focus on what is positive. Address yourself by name when using positive affirmations. They should feel specially designed for you. Make the affirmations in the morning when you wake up and when you go to bed. Your mind is very alert in the morning and ready to store in your subconscious new information. At night, you need to sleep in peace.
