Swish… Swish
Taking-in the air greedily like it would be my last breath, you wouldn’t know why, but there is a connection between the SEA and ME.

Swish swish
Here it comes again,
This time it has succeeded in washing away my worries, making the heavy heart of mine feel relieved.

The burden was going to weight me down, but I have found a listening ear with the SEA, oh how it listened with joy and gave me peace of mind

Do you know, it’s the most creative of all nature, I find my melody in it, beautiful ideas to take the world in awe, you have just won yourself a tittle….. My best friend. Thanks for the soothing affection tenderness you give out.

Following my previous post https://okatchy.wordpress.com/2020/05/12/becoming-you/, I’ll be talking about how best to get over low self esteem on the journey of becoming you.

In psychology the term self esteem is used to describe a person’s overall sense of self-worth or personal value. Self esteem plays a major role in your success journey in life.

We have various types of self esteem which are as follows

  1. Low self-esteem
  2. High self esteem
  3. Healthy self-esteem.

    Low self-esteem may hold you back from doing what needs to be done in other to be successful. It’ll make you feel like you can’t do it and even if you eventually do it, you’ll still see it as not good enough.

    High self-esteem brings about over confidence, pride, and makes you feel you can do it all by yourself neglecting those around you, forgetting that no single tree can make a forest.

    Healthy self – esteem brings about success, because you’ll find yourself going through life with a positive and assertive attitude which makes you feel like you can do all things that you set your mind to do.

On this post I will be talking about low self-esteem and how to get rid of it to achieve a healthy self-esteem without jumping over board to high self-esteem.

Having gone through this sickness known as low self esteem myself, I can boldly give you the things I did that worked for me. It’s not easy but I will be discussing with us few steps to overcoming low self-esteem.

Before proceeding to the first step, you’ll need to first identify what it is you are battling. To proffer solution to any situation, you’ll have to first identify the problem and the root cause of the problem, after which you’ll proceed to solving the problem.

I can say, that our experience most times forms the basis for overall self-esteem.

How to know If you suffer from low self-esteem.

BECOMING YOU

The little me was filled with freshness, joy, happiness, and energy.

At the time I always felt like the most beautiful creature that ever existed because I was unique, I felt that I could fly because I believed in me than anyone else. But then change set in. I became cautious of myself, my body, my face, my stomach, because I started seeing the opposite of me in the paintings people showed me with respect to how they saw me. The boldness was gone, the energy was nowhere to be found and I was gone, I saw me as impossible, I saw me as a girl that couldn’t achieve her dreams until I become perfect in the definition of others. 

In the quest for a perfect look, I started searching for solutions to problems that never existed. I forgot about me and started wanting to be like the girl next door. I wanted to be slim, lost focus, and chased vanity,  took everything and anything that would enhance weight loss, but I failed woefully, Instead of losing weight, I gained more weight.

Low self-esteem was the captain of my boat, I never believed I deserved anything good and felt I was not entitled to happiness. Why? Because I listened to what people thought, but I didn’t realize that their thoughts were wrong.

Low self-esteem is an unworthy and incomplete feeling about one’s self. 

What if I never listened? What if I didn’t let the names people called me get to me? What if I  never stopped believing in myself? What if I  knew who I was?

You are what you say you are and not what people say you are

Many of us have found ourselves in such a situation, some already committed suicide based on what they allowed to get to them. Now they see less of themselves and wish to be someone else other than themselves. If you find yourself in this situation or state, I am happy to let you know, you are on the right page. On this page, we will be going on a journey of becoming YOU. 

 In this journey of BECOMING YOU, I’m going to be sharing with you 

  • What you need to know to get off low self-esteem 
  • How to discover your life’s  Purpose  
  • How to discover who you are. 

I want to hear your story. I’ll like to hear about your experience, 

You are welcome.

Shared knowledge

My life experiences have taught me quite a bit of lesson, I will be sharing some of my thoughts about them. This is to help others who might be going through similar situations learn from, especially the teenagers and young adults.

As a teenager turned adult, you’ll realize that adulthood is probably the most challenging stage in life because one gets to learn the most difficult lessons in life such as; the act of sacrifice, the act of decision making without someone to depend on, the overwhelming desire to survive, etc. In light of this, we naturally seek for individuals who might have gone through similar situations like ours, to talk with or to hear them out for direction, ensuring that we are not on the wrong path. Man always seeks for answers. 

Okatchy’s post will be helpful to both parents, teenagers, adults, and couples. This I intend to achieve as I continue putting down my thoughts.

So feel free to drop your thoughts or experience in the comment box below, we love to hear from you.
