Column: Crushing Low Self-Esteem With Confidence



Hey there, superstar! Thanks for joining me at the beginning of my weekly columnist journey that has been tagged Time Out With Harrenta Brown. I already envision an exciting ride in this dairy and I know you too will find our discourse super interesting!

Today, we will be breaking the ice by talking about how you can overcome low self-esteem and reinvent yourself as a superstar. Do you sometimes feel like your self-esteem might need a little boost? You’re not alone. Together, we are diving into the universe of low self-esteem and how to give it a swift straight kick in the confidence department. Get ready because we’re about to turn your self-sabotage into self-discovery! Shall we?

What’s the Deal with Low Self-Esteem Anyway?

Okay, picture this: negative self-talk, doubting your abilities, and feeling like you’re not measuring up. Yep, that’s the low self-esteem gang making themselves at home. Recognising the signs is like pulling back the curtain on that sneaky self-doubt wizard.

Shower Yourself with Self-Compassion

Time to treat yourself like the amazing human you are. Imagine giving your best friend a pep talk when they’re down—now give yourself the same love. Let those self-critical thoughts take a hike and replace them with kind and encouraging words. You got this!

Bye-Bye, Negative Nelly

Negative self-talk is like that annoying song stuck in your head. But guess what? You can change the station. Catch those negative thoughts and challenge them like a pro. Swap them for positive affirmations that’ll make your self-esteem soar.

Superhero Goals: One Step at a Time

You’re not trying to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but achieving your goals can still feel like superhero status. Break them down into bite-sized chunks, and with each little victory, you’ll feel your confidence growing faster than a plant in a sunshine factory.

Show Yourself Some TLC

Common, you too deserve that tender loving care (TLC). Self-care isn’t just bubble baths and face masks (although those are awesome too). It’s about giving your mind and body what they need to thrive. Hit the gym, curl up with a good book, or just chill with friends who make you feel like a million bucks.

Positivity Posse, Assemble!

Ever heard the saying “you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with”? Surround yourself with the kind of folks who lift you, cheer you on, and remind you of your awesomeness. You may also wish to stay away from thse who make you feel less of your true awesome self.

When in Doubt, Reach Out

No shame in calling in the reinforcements. If low self-esteem is giving you a run for your money, don’t hesitate to team up with a mental health pro. They’re like the coaches of confidence, helping you tackle self-doubt head-on.

Growing Pains? Nah, Growing Gains!

Life’s path can be very bumpy, but it’s all part of the beautiful race you are on. Accept the struggles and bumps as opportunities to level up and change for the better, and watch as your self-esteem transforms from a small scared caterpillar to a beautiful thriving butterfly.

So there you have it, my friend. Low self-esteem doesn’t stand a chance when you’re armed with self-compassion, positivity, and a dash of superhero confidence. Remember, it’s not about being perfect—it’s about recognising your worth and celebrating every step you take toward a more confident you. You’re on your way to rocking your self-esteem like a pro!
