How to gain confidence/raise my self esteem?

By Guest Author On January 12, 2010 Under Self Improvement

I have a low self confidence, and I want to hear real people tell me how they dealt with it, so it may help me gain confidence.

work out and get a hobby; join a club. You will feel good about yourself and meet a lot of positive people.

never be negative about yourself. Always be positive. If you keep saying that about yourself, you’ll start to believe it.

hi Ally, urm i had really low self esteem but then i thiught wow ! hold up , why should i worry bout what i say or do as long as iot makes me happy, if its not "cool" do i care i mean the main goal is happyness right? so i sopped …. everything all the "!sucking up" to peopl;e the thought i should try tpo please so they woukld accept me. and i focused on what made me tick what did i actiually like?coz i didnt know! id spent so much time learning what otherss thought was cool that i forgot to ya know actually live my life. I did this because i had a near death experiance ,which i think was a blessing an discuise because it woke me up. im glad to see you dont need that lol.
my advice wud be stay in for b/5 days and see what happens after a day or so of frustration ul find ur self doing what actually interests YOU. this you can build on and after a few months u are a whole person with your own likes dislikes morals and oppinions , exept now u have the confidance because ur not just pretending. I hope this helps you if you wont some one to talk to email me. id be happy to help 🙂

I can’t say that I have any much experience in rasing my self worth but I can tell you what’s helped some. While trying to stay positive positive positive is a good idea I found that it make me hate myself even more because I was never able to stop the negative voice all of the time. Yes, be positive and look at things in a positive light but not everything IS positive, that’s just how things are. What I’ve been doing is thinking about why I have low self esteem and wondering if there really is anything I can do to change that and only thinking about one thing at a time. This is a process, be patient, but don’t let yourself give up.

Ally,
Try to notice or aware of your thoughts. Once you aware the negative thoughts in your head, Thanks it for sharing. Then shift to other positive thoughts instead. Once I feel not confident going to do a performance infront of others. And I noticed I kept thinking "I cannot do it…this would be very shameful"…Aha..then I change to this "I can do this..if someone can do, I can do it"

So change negative thoughts -> Positivity can help

use mirror technique of doing affirmations,write down affirmations,say them out loud 1st thing morning and before bed everyday…google "affirmations for confidence"..another tip:get rid of negative friends who put u down and if ur surrounded by negative influences,move to a better environment,also do something u love and have goals 2 work toward,and stop reading and watching d news since its nothing but negative ****….these things helped me.
