Self esteem determines how you perceive your worth. Many who lack self-esteem let other people abuse them and feel unworthy for something better. This issue can hinder your progress to heal your depression, because you have to value who you are to even want to get better.
Those with low self-esteem don’t believe they deserve to be joyful. It can lead to empty choices in your quest to heal. I made this video because to increase your mood takes a change in how you see yourself. Negativity robs many of the deepest joy they could experience in life.
They go around feeling depressed about their life and the world. They see themselves as “little people” in a big world. People with low self-esteem feel insignificant in their environment and never have the chance to fully grow and become who they are.
Many people are hurting because of the unexpressed pain of feeling worthless and meager. Your circumstances are not the factor in how you see yourself. Your hopes and faith should be the determining factor, because no one or thing on this earth can give you a permanent feeling of worth and a joy for living.
At my worst moments, I didn’t see myself in a positive perspective. Change what you don’t like about yourself but don’t let your dislikes rule your life. Don’t always point out your weakness.
What are your strengths? Write 25 characteristics you like about yourself.
Many mistake pride for self-esteem, but that is not a healthy demeanor for yourself or other people around you. In many instances, those who are prideful have self-esteem issues because they feel the need to act superior when really they have insecurities and ill feelings towards themselves.
Self esteem is about having respect for yourself. It is about having an encouraging perspective about your capabilities and significance. It is not in a healthy sense to be boastful or make other people feel less than you.
Self esteem is focusing on what you like about yourself rather than your flaws.
Do you have value to offer other people? If not, why?
Do you appreciate what you have in your life?
Focus on your strengths. Take time everyday to read the scriptures and reflect on how it impacts you. When you start to form a positive view of yourself only then can you be motivated to take the journey to heal.
I hope this helps in your depression recovery. Thank you for reading! Please post a comment below.
