Looking over my life and the lives of family, friends and others I’ve worked with in PLM (now My Tattered Brim) low self-esteem is a an ugly, choking common thread that is in the root of many unwise decisions. Who am I kidding flat out bad decisions and bad choices.
As much as I thought I didn’t have esteem issues, I can say with honesty that it was at the heart of:
- Succumbing to peer pressure
- Staying in that relationship
- Accepting less when I deserved more
- Becoming something I’m not to fit into the mold so I can be accepted
But people……YOU ARE MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN YOU THINK!! I love the Dove campaign in this video, it really shows that what we see, is not what we present to the world. So the GFQ of the day: Why is it hard for us to accept this truth? How can we stop self-sabotaging and build our self-esteem & confidence?
