People with low self esteem are not condemned to it for life.

There are specific things that can be done to improve or increase self-esteem. Here are a few ideas that you can do on your own.

Nine Things You Can Do To Increase Self Esteem

1. Increase the number of positive things you say to yourself, about yourself.

2. Decrease the number of negative things you say to yourself, about yourself.

3. Practice giving and receiving genuine compliments.

4. Develop a more realistic view of the world and your place in it.

  • Develop an appreciation of your own worth.
  • Accept that you are not responsible for the emotional reactions of others.

5. Accept your weaknesses and mistakes.

6. Learn to refrain from comparing yourself to others. Comparisons are deadly!
