Self Esteem

Monday, October 31, 2016

I am struggling with significant low self esteem and self confidence. I have lost weight- people notice but I just don't feel good about me. I thrive on my husband/friends/strangers comments and attention, it makes me feel good about myself. I went out this weekend, dressed up and even put make up on (rare, i am more natural), and I got zero compliments. I felt awful. Seriously, I didn't think I looked that bad but not even a "you look nice tonight" was said. I realize I shouldn't leave MY self esteem up to other people, but it is hard to turn it around to me. What do you do to make yourself feel better?

    I took anatomy. Your human body is amazing. That's just a start . Try reading Soul Without Shame. Byron Brooks. It helped me shut up my inner critic.
