You should take the time to congratulate yourself

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.

How can we then be a source of encouragement?

It is truly easy to become a source of encouragement. Anyone can do it.

When you admire something about another person, tell her or him. Let’s get into the habit of lifting each other up instead of competing against each other. We really should also get used to applauding each other’s other non-physical traits more than focusing on appearance and beauty.

If you have high regards, great respect, and favourable thoughts of the people in your circle of trust and influence, let them know.

Being a source of encouragement isn’t just about what you do, but what you shouldn’t do. Never speak stuff that causes unnecessary hurt to others by speaking unclaimed rumours behind their back.

Being optimistic helps you believe in yourself

Of course everyone know that being optimistic is better than being constantly pessimistic, but do we know why being optimistic helps you?

How does being positive helps you?

Being optimistic helps youPessimists people think they succeed with occasional skills or external causes. They believe it is only a stroke of luck and may give up, even if successful.

Optimists people think that they succeed because of their qualities and abilities, which increases their self-esteem. The optimists people are the ones who benefit most from success.

Being positive also reduces stress, which is bad for your health. Trust me, as someone with a chronic illness, I know first hand how stress worsen my condition.

How can we get a positive mindset?

Every time you achieve something, no matter how small it is, take a moment to reflect on what qualities and abilities help you.

Do you know what you want in life?

Do you know what you want in life?” This is a question we ask teenagers a lot, but it is also good to ask ourselves well into adulthood. Personally, this is a question I ask myself every year. It helps me stay focus and true to what I really want. It’s easy, especially as adults, to go through the motion and lose perspective on our goals and dreams.

A lot of people live their entire lives without knowing what they want. If you are one of those people, then you aren’t alone and it’s perfectly normal.

Here is 3 tips to finding out what you want in life:

  1. Take time to get to know yourself. That’s how you will find out exactly what you want in life. There won’t be any hesitation or self-doubt.
  2. Don’t rely on other people to fulfill your desires. Realize that leaning on others to find happiness and fulfillment is fraught with danger.
  3. You can’t pinpoint exactly what you want in life if you’re constantly sacrificing your time and dreams for other people.

Why should you embrace your emotions?

As a society, I find that we have grown uncomfortable with emotions. Although I am a big fan of Star Trek, I don’t necessarily think that Vulcan’s have a healthy view of logic or emotions. It’s important to embrace your emotions because repressing them is bad for your mental and physical health. Embrace all of your emotions, even the negative ones. Strong people realize that accepting emotions is the only way you can truly move on.

It’s time we remember that emotions aren’t bad words. We have them for a reason. We shouldn’t be suppressing or hiding them. Your emotions belong to you, and you choose how you want to express them.

Part of embracing your emotion is being honest about them and not shaming others for having them. In other words, be honest with others and expect the same in return.

Nothing is universally perfect. Be patient with those who are in bad moods or who are anxious or nervous. You never know the struggle that these people are going through.

How to you find your self-worth?

The first rule to finding your self-worth is to ignore what others say about you. Know you are worthy. Don’t let people who are hypocritical or inconsistent with their words and actions bring you down. If someone crosses you, don’t be afraid to get rid of them. Admire people who have integrity.

The second rule to finding your self-worth is forgiving yourself for making mistakes. If you are anything like me, your anxiety makes it that you obsess over small mistakes that have little impact on the big picture turning them into something much bigger than they actually are. It makes me feel that any mistake would undermine my entire self-worth. This is why it’s important to remember that we are all human and that we will make mistakes. It’s just part of the journey.

The third rule to finding your self-worth is to stop chasing perfection. No one on this planet of ours is perfect no matter how hard many of us are trying.

Does your romantic relationship make you feel less worthy?

If the person you are dating acts distant to you and makes you doubt your self-worth, simply say goodbye and avoid getting played for a fool. The cost of being in a bad relationship isn’t worth it.

Of course, if the person you are dating respects you and treats you right, do the same for them.

Is it bad to kiss and tell?

To kiss and tell is defined as to share your romantic and sexual exploits with others.

I’m a blogger. My personal journal is pretty much online for everyone to read, but one thing I don’t do is kiss and tell. It is disrespectful and rude. It takes advantage of another person’s vulnerability.

Whether it is about their sex life or relationship issues, you don’t need to tell people about your personal business. Your friends do not need to know the details. Leave them to their fully capable imaginations. Know the value of privacy and do not look to anyone else for approval.

What is a compliment that you struggle to accept about yourself?

I struggle to accept compliments about my looks. Since I got since a few years ago, my body has changed quite a bit and sometimes it makes me feel like I lost a lost of that youthful and healthy attractiveness I used to have. This is why I struggle to believe people when they tell me I look good. I’m always comparing myself to my best day, instead of seeing the beauty in what I look like now.
