Get Over Yourself
Iâ€™ve found that when people are struggling with their own self-esteemâ€¦or when they just feel bad about themselvesâ€¦One of the best things they can do is to get out there and do something for someone else!
Now that might sound a little weird, but Iâ€™ve found that helping other people helps me get the focus off of myself and how crappy my own life seems and it gives me a new perspective.
Serving other peopleâ€¦even when I donâ€™t feel like itâ€¦helps me in my battle with my own self-centeredness. It helps me feel better because Iâ€™m doing something to serve someone else.
I donâ€™t know about you, but itâ€™s kind of like Christmas time for meâ€¦when I was younger, I enjoyed receiving gifts a lot more than giving them. But now I love givingâ€¦especially when I donâ€™t expect to get anything in return! Thatâ€™s good for my soul. And it works the same way when I serve someone without expecting anything back. It helps me re-focus my life and get back on center.
If youâ€™re struggling with feelings of low self-esteem, why not give it a shot? What have you got to lose?
