Re: FOCUS ON OURSELVES: Self-Esteem


ooh! new smileys emoticon

but, not so good on the self-esteem part:
my score: 37% emoticon

thanks Lynn, another great post.

i was really surprised at a few things about self-esteem:

you have to pamper yourself while working hard!
i never thought that taking care of yourself would be so closely linked to self-esteem. i always assumed that people who sacrifice themselves and their time for other people would be more on track than those who took time for themselves.

LISTENING to yourself is also a big part. it was a revelation to me that you have to listen to what your body is telling you. a big part of building self-esteem can be small things like - if your body is telling you you've been sitting too long, stand up and stretch! so simple, yet so many times ignored!
and i KNOW i ignored that part of my mind that said - STAY AWAY from this man!
so listening!

self-affirmations are only band-aid: the real stuff is what you DO along with what you SAY to yourself.

arrogance is NOT self-esteem. i know it sounds silly when i write it, but i always thought that arrogant people have high respect for themselves! they actually LACK self-esteem.
so, this n who is soooooo arrogant, is actually so because he lacks enough self-esteem. i used to admire his blatant arrogance and confuse it with self-esteem!
(of course at the same time kicking myself down thinking i dont lack that, so i dont deserve respect even from myself)


there is still so much i have to read, and read again!
thanks so much again for this Lynn.

Re: FOCUS ON OURSELVES: Self-Esteem


I'm so glad this has been helpful, everyone.

Wasiused, you've made some great points in your post. Listening to yourself is so very important and starting with the smallest things can make a world of difference. When we realize that self-care is important to our own sense of self, it tends to change a lot of things for the better.

Hugs to all,
Lynn
