Your perceptions about yourself affect how you deal with any situation. If you constantly give yourself negative messages you will start to believe you are unworthy or incapable.
Increase your self-esteem by simply improving the way you generally think and talk to yourself. Thinking and constantly reinforcing positive messages helps you to believe in your own self-worth.
It is important to do things that make you feel good about yourself, like learning new skills and working towards achieving personal goals.
Help your family and friend’s self-esteem by being more encouraging and complimentary about their endeavours.
