Low Self Esteem is a Road Block to Happiness
Do you beat yourself up with critical, negative, judgemental thoughts?
Do you sometimes feel worthless and defeated and give up before you try?
Maybe you have noticed that you tend to withdraw from others and have difficulty expressing your feelings or putting yourself first.
Are you reluctant to trust your opinions and make decisions?
Is accepting a compliment difficult for you?
Self Compassion is the Breakthrough you Need
Improving your sense of self-worth, self-acceptance and self-love is at the very heart of all progress towards a happier, more meaningful life.
Enjoying a better relationship with yourself is the foundation for more fulfilling connections with others in your life.
Self compassion has three components:
- Self-Kindness instead of Self-Judgement allows you to be gentler with yourself, and learn from your experiences rather than let them define you.
- Acknowledgement of our Common Humanity helps you to understand that we are all in this life of suffering and inadequacy together. You are not alone and you don’t have to be perfect in isolation.
- Mindful awareness of your thoughts and emotions lets you be more accepting of what is, and less influenced by self-doubt. You don’t have to believe everything you think and be swept away with overreactivity.
Therapeutic approaches for Self-Esteem Therapy and Self-Compassion Therapy may include:
