Self-Esteem: A Look Inside and Out

Self-Esteem: A Look Inside and Out

Ever feel less than perfect? Or that you just aren't measuring up? This is a common issue amongst people all over the world. It's a stressful environment out there. The pressure to look and be a certain way is forever rising. The bar is set just a little bit higher for each generation to come. Is there a way to actually love yourself for you are? The answer is definitely yes.

Body image is not just an issue females face, males also struggle with how they look. It's doubley difficult if others have mistreated you or not been there for you as you've experienced your weight/body image/self-esteem issues. Do you see a psychiatrist or a therapist/counselor? If not, I would definitely recommend it. It can be really helpful to get out whatever you're feeling, particularly to someone who isn't in your world and can be objective. There are places that do sliding scales for fees and free clinics if money is an issue. I'd be happy to help you get referrals in that regard.

As for what you can do for yourself, I'd definitely recommend checking There are articles/blogs I've posted on here about depression, anxiety, stress, anger, etc. I also have my website linked to my Twitter account. It sounds cheesy, but I post daily positive affirmations on there. It's really important to try to focus on the positives about you (because you are not just made up of your outward appearance, it's also what is inside).

I would suggest reading:
