The reason why you should take the time to congratulate yourself is that we are not always aware of our successes or we forget them. Yet, it is thanks to them that we can increase our feeling of confidence and self-esteem. So being aware of these successes is important.
Take the time to congratulate yourself on the fact that you have succeeded, no matter how small the achievement. Don’t wait for others to congratulate you.

Also pay attention to positive behaviour. By taking notice you will grow your confidence and self-esteem.
Taking a moment is also about being at peace with yourself and being in tune with your emotions.
Doing this also helps us realize how far we have come in a positive light. Positive affirmation that can provide a boost of encouragement for those difficult moments we all experience.
I have always had a hard time congratulating myself. I actually have to remind myself to do so. It’s normal to do so. It takes time to build a new habit. Because I forget to stop, I often do not see all that I have done in my own life. This is a huge disservice to myself.
