How to Build Your Self-Esteem

Building self-esteem is a major part of being happy but a lot of people make it more difficult than it has to be. The key is to do things that really speak to you such as:

  • Deciding who the real you is and what love doing.
  • Writing down a list of tasks that will help do the things you love.
  • Doing one small thing each day.

The act of doing things that mean something to you will help you build your self-esteem over time.

How to Be Happy: You Can’t Hide Pain

If you’ve ever seen someone cry at what seems to be an inappropriate time or in an unusual context then you know what it’s like to bottle up pain. A big part ofbeing happy is healing the things inside you that cause you pain. These can be things you’ve done in the past or that people have done to you that have hurt you in some way. The discomfort comes from people not treating you with kindness or you not being able to do it for yourself.

The hurt simply means that you have something deep inside that needs attention. It keeps hurting unless you reconnect with who you really are and live a genuine, fulfilling life that comes from deep inside you. It’s the split from your true self that causes the pain and you can never hide it because it comes out when you least expect it. There are many things you can do to heal including going to therapy, meditation and living a life that is deeply meaningful to you. What will you do to start the healing?


What Do You Have to Offer?

A lot of people tie themselves in knots trying to be someone else. They think that they have to behave a certain way or do particular things because someone else tells them so or they don’t heed their own inner voice. One of the best ways to honor yourself during your journey toward happiness is to define who you are. Take an inventory of the amazing things you have to offer and incorporate them in your daily life. The more you know about yourself and what you have to offer, the easier it will be to interact with people, share your gifts with the world and make your dreams come true.
