Cat-woman asks…

I have self-esteem issues and often ask people if they think I look pretty. Help!

Anna says...

You are beautiful in your own way and someday someone else will make you feel even more beautiful. For now, love yourself genuinely. Later in life you will realize that you must not care about what other people think of your appearance. If they think you are not attractive enough then, that is their problem - not yours. Besides, haters gonna hate even if you're the loveliest of all.

Self-esteem is huge part of a one's perception of the self. Here are three efficient ways to boost your self-esteem…

1. REDEFINE WHAT IS MEANINGFUL

You may have equated your self-worth to your body or the way you dress up. So, if you feel that you do not follow the latest trend in beauty and fashion shown by media then, you will feel disappointed. This shall not be the case because these things are superficial. Redefine what is truly meaningful. Gain self-worth from the things you are good at and the things you are passionate about.

2. STICK TO THE RIGHT CROWD

Friends play an impact in your self-esteem. So, if you have friends who constantly ridicule and criticize you and your appearance then, they might not be a good influence. Surround yourself with people that make you feel good about yourself…those who support you and guide you in your decisions. Choose your friends carefully.

3. MAINTAIN POSITIVE INTERNAL DIALOGUES

Positive view of one's worth starts within you. Your thoughts, beliefs, and emotions will lead your experience. So, talk to positive to yourself. Start by counting your wonderful accomplishments or your favorite personal qualities. Dwell on it for a while.
