SAB's Low Self Esteem Symptoms
My low self-esteem signs come from...
Doubting how others see me
After losing 8 stone in the past 2 years I find myself still doubting what I see in the mirror as being the "new me"; I also think that other people see me as the obese person I was.
So if anyone is chuckling or talking with someone and they're looking in my direction then I feel like they are making fun of me!
I know, deep down, that I don't look bad these days, but there is a slight niggle deep inside that tells me that I am still that obese person who I was.
Thank you for sharing your low self-esteem signs SAB. I'm sure there are many who read this who know just how you feel. Just shows how powerful body image is, I guess, that even when your body 'improves' your body image might not.
Thank you for sharing, SAB - this is the first step in you finding your own strength to challenge the way you see yourself! Would others like to comment?...
A New Way of Seeing Self-Esteem?
Steve here, and for the last few years (since Oct 2012, actually) I've been seeing (and thinking about) low self-esteem in a different way. Not as a problem to fix, but as feedback to notice (and nothing more). That's right: nothing to fix, everything to notice. And all this became obvious to me after being introduced to the Three Principles behind life (in Oct 2012).
I created a free 1-page Self-Esteem Guide that explains more, anyway. You can read about it here (NO EMAIL REQUIRED) - SMNash.com/self-esteem-guide/
Thank you - Steve
