Believing in yourself as you!

An earlier blog was about being honest to yourself, and this is also about being honest in yourself with a slightly different perspective. Many people who have been ill, or suffered trauma, or from other various reasons can lose self esteem. This causes all sorts of problems and sometimes because we don’t feel we are good enough, we may give in to others, be vulnerable and do things we didn’t really want to do, but do it to please others. This can be significant issues right down to little details like going out when you really didn’t want to, buying something you really didn’t like but others persuaded you. Sometimes this can work out well because you may have needed a push to go out and socialise, that garment may look fantastic on you, but at other times you have probably reflected and wished you hadn’t been persuaded.Again this is just my personal view and from experience, and I say take a step back, look at yourself, you are a worthy person in your own right and have the confidence to be yourself. Many people when they have lost self esteem sometimes act and behave as they think other people want to see them behave. We all do this to a certain extent, but when you have been to rock bottom and climbed up again, it is another step that has to be taken, as the easiest route is to do what others want as you haven’t the strength to disagree.
I genuinely believe that people should be true to themselves, and be themselves, and to do this, you need to believe in yourself as a person who has rights and their own principles and morals, that the more you do this you will find your confidence grows, and that others around you probably share many of the same principles and will also admire and respect you, and love you for the person you are.

  1. So true…i have believed for many years when i looked in the mirror i looked like a gargoyle and could never understand why anyone would want me”guess this goes back to my father” because i was a hell of an ugly little kid huge buck teeth and a squint in my eye.So when your told your ugly and a freak in your childhood you then take it into your adult hood…Took me a long time to believe in who i was. I was engaged 3 times when younger all good looking ladies but i did anything to get rid of them so i would cheat on them because in my mind they had ulterior motives because why would they be with me. Maybe it was just my way of pushing people away because of my mistrust in females as one of my abusers was a women and i thought they were all the same..Thankfully i met a wonderful lady who has been at my side when i was drinking heavy doing drugs and has always been faithful loyal and always in my corner “lol but every now and then the thought comes into my head why is this beautiful lady still with me” lol 26 years and she is still here and is still the same loyal and loving person who has helped me through so much…..PAT..
