4 Tips to build up her Self-Esteem
Talk kindly to yourself
Don’t put yourself down when you make mistakes. Lift yourself up and talk to yourself as you would your best friend! Use affirmations!
Don’t compare yourself to others
You are your own person with your own strengths and values. No two people are the same, so don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Comparing brings you down and hurts your self-esteem. Try not to do this!
Find things you love to do and do them!
Do you love to paint, draw, dance, fish, journal, sing? GO AND DO THOSE THINGS! When we discover things that lights us up and make us happy, we immediately can feel good about ourselves and what we are doing. Having something you love to do and can get excited about changes our mood, boosts our confidence and our self-esteem.
Surround yourself with friends that lift you up.
Make sure that your friend group is positive and kind because if you are around others that make you feel bad about yourself or make you feel less, then you need to find another friend group. Those behaviors will hurt your self esteem and confidence. Make sure you are surrounding yourself with friend’s that make you laugh, lift you up, make you smile and feel good about yourself.
