A good self-image is the key to success, healthy relationships, long-lasting friendships, and a better lifestyle.
Steps to Achieve Better Self Image:
It is OK to take care of others. But sometimes we take ourselves for granted. We forget to take care of our appearance, our mental health, and our priorities.
It is best to remain balanced and prioritize yourself first. Groom yourself, feel good, look good, and don't be afraid to pamper yourself now and then.
Stop Self Shaming:
Society has made specific standards of beauty. We are addicted to social media and following the lives of celebrities/bloggers/influencers. If we do not fall into those certain stereotypes, we fear that we will not be accepted.
Do not shame yourself—no matter what color, size, sexuality, ethnicity, country, or race you are. Accept yourself as you are. Your little flaws and imperfections make you beautiful.
Leave Toxic People:
One of the root causes of having lower self-esteem is that we think we are lesser human beings. We do not deserve love, and if we get love from someone toxic, it makes us almost impossible to leave them.
Toxic and narcissist people do not deserve a spot in our lives. They only make us even more miserable. They will destroy our self-image with their manipulative tactics. It is best to get out of such damaging relationships.
Be Your Best Friend:
Although best friends play a vital role in our lives, it doesn't mean that they will stay forever.
Do not cancel your plans if your friends are busy. Go on, take yourself to the movies, have a cup of hot latte, hike to the top of mountains, dive into fresh streams, and party like you have never done before.
Yes, you can do it all by yourself, my friend!
Lose your past self to gain a more confident and unapologetic newer self. Do not regret anything. Seek happiness in small deeds. Help others.
Talk about your mental health to people who care about you. Make yourself proud by achieving smaller goals. Run for peace of mind, not money.
If you want to change this world, you must change yourself first. There is no obstacle in the way. Just remain faithful to your inner self!
