Building self-esteem involves concentrating on your strengths and accomplishments. To begin, it’s helpful to set small, achievable goals and acknowledge your successes, regardless of how small they may seem. Incorporating positive self-talk and challenging negative thoughts that undermine your confidence is beneficial. Additionally, surrounding yourself with supportive individuals who provide encouragement and support is important. Engaging in activities that bring you joy and enhance your feelings of self-worth is also advantageous. Over time, these strategies can help you cultivate a stronger sense of self-worth and the confidence needed to pursue your goals.

Here’s an example illustrating how to build self-esteem: (one of my clients story with the name changed)

Anisa, struggling with low self-esteem, decided to focus on her strengths. As guided by the therapist. She set small goals, like finishing a book each month, and celebrated each success. Practising positive self-talk and spending time with supportive friends boosted her confidence. Engaging in activities she loved, like painting and trekking, further enhanced her self-worth. Over time, Anisha’s efforts helped her build a stronger sense of self-esteem and confidence.

Low self-esteem may impede your ability to pursue opportunities and take risks. When you question your abilities, you are less likely to step out of your comfort zone and reach your full potential. This lack of confidence can result in missed opportunities as the fear of failure or judgement prevents you from taking on new challenges. Over time, low self-esteem can affect your mental health, relationships, and overall quality of life.
