The Importance of Building Self Esteem

Self esteem is one of the most important elements any of us can have, and building self esteem is an important aspect of that element. Far too many of us lack self esteem because your parents or other loved ones told you that we are not good enough, or pretty enough, or smart enough to do the things that we want to do. In some cases, this negativity follows us into adulthood, and into marriage with a spouse who tells us we don’t have what it takes to follow our dreams.

Those who should support you the most are the ones who break your spirit more often, but you can do something about it. Improving your self esteem means putting to rest what others tell you and accepting that you are a good and deserving person. When you are young, someone’s negative thinking can easily sway you, but as you grow older, you realize they were just using that as a means of controlling you and preventing you from the things you wanted to do. If you recognize this when you are still young enough to follow those dreams, you can reverse the process and develop the process of improving self esteem.

For some unknown reason, perhaps insecurity, husbands are high on the list of people who create havoc. Perhaps it is because they fear their wives earning more money, or of finding a life that is more satisfying than the current situation. Whatever the reasons may be, you need to force yourself to rise above that and work on building self esteem in spite of what anyone says. You must control who you are and what you want from yourself instead of letting others tell you that you are not good enough or talented enough to do it.

Developing self esteem takes a lot of work, but it will go a long way in the process of building it and allowing you to let go of any negativity that has presented itself in your life. Don’t allow those who tell you can’t do it to break your self esteem. Rise above them and do what you know that you are capable of doing, and if it creates insecurity, that is not your concern but theirs.
