We are born to like ourselves. We are born to appreciate and love who we are and who we become or who we can become.
Therefore, low self-esteem is unnatural and, sadly it is more and more prevalent in the modern society because of the pressure to achieve and we getting more and more disconnected from our family, friends and, in general, lacking a support system.
In this article, we go back to basics - self-esteem is the product of your mind as a consequence of your environment and the opportunities you have.
You are born to like and appreciate yourself!
The premise of the article is that you can change your self-esteem with what you already have; it is in your hands because it is your brain.
Low self-esteem is a struggle.
In one hand you like yourself, you want to believe and prove that you are a good person, a worthy person. On the other hand, you might think that you don’t deserve good things, that you are not good enough and so on.
Did you know that the vast majority of people believe that they are above average? Even people with low self-esteem are rating themselves above average. We like ourselves that much!
This is a good thing and a great news because this means that what you’ve been born with (to like and appreciate yourself) it is still there, inside of you ready to offer you the best foundation for a happy and fulfilled life.
Self-esteem is the product of your mind, and if your self-esteem is low today, it is just a matter of discovering how to use what you already have to build up your strength and positive feeling towards self.
