People
who have low self image, and low self esteem, are unhappy
with whom they are in life. Things that are done well are
often taken for granted. Where as mistakes are heavily
looked upon. One\'s position in life and previous
experiences can also add to negative feelings. Constantly
being told you\'re headed no where or that you\'re nothing
but a failure can lead to a low self esteem and low self
image. There are many things that can be done to raise self
image, and self esteem. Responding to criticism positively is
very important. If someone points out a flaw in something
you\'ve done, strive to fix it. They are not trying to belittle
you. They are just helping. Be positive and confident in
yourself, and listen to your own opinions. What you have to
say is just as important as anything else anyone has to
share. Hard work to improve the things you\'re not good at
is another way that can help you feel better about yourself.
Finally always remember your only human, you can\'t be
perfect at everything you do. The process that I have
created to help resolve mental and emotional issues
consists of two steps. First it is very important to get your
emotions out. Expressing your feelings through poetry or
drawings are two ways to resolve mental and emotional
issues. If you don\'t feel artistic, try to let your feelings out
through other means. Let your anger out on a punching bag
or even a basketball court, rather than repressing it.
Sigmund Freud labeled repression as the number one
bodily defense mechanism against fear. Franklin D.
Roosevelt once said "you have nothing to fear but fear
itself." Not letting your emotions out never allows you to be
free of them, therefore hindering your happiness in life. The
second aspect of our process is to be happy. Do things that
make you happy. If you think about it, when you\'re happy
nothing really matters. No matter how many times you have
done something wrong or failed when you\'re happy these
things don\'t bother you. The second process that I have
created is intended to lead others and myself to mental and
emotional satisfaction. I think if you view the world with an
optimistic eye you can only receive satisfaction. Being
happy with who you are as a person is very important. As
phony as it may sound I strongly believe that it is true. If
you are happy with who you are there is no need to rob,
steel, or put others down. If everyone was happy with who
they were, the world would be the ideal utopia, where
everyone can achieve peace of mind.
