Increase Your Self-Esteem In 10 Days. Day 2: Your Psychological Self-Portrait

01-07-2012I am offering you the chance to change. Follow a series of posts and increase your self-worth and esteem. Low self-esteem is like a weight around your neck and stops you moving forward but it is not your story. It is the result of believing false stories and having a “I am bad” mental filter. Join me for the next 10 days and I would be happy to give you input on your answers. Send them to me using the contact form at the end of this post for free no-obligation advice. Details of my online therapy packages can be found on drnjenner.com Good luck on your journey to the new you!

Here is Day 2:

Many of us carry a distorted view of what we are. Quite simply, this could have come from one or two bad memories that outweigh many more good ones, leaving us unable to recognise our strengths. Negative memories and concepts draw our minds attention and we focus fully on them, giving an unbalanced view. In the end, we only remember what fits that picture in a process called confirmatory bias. The result is that our positive qualities are subdued or pale into insignificance. This exercise looks at remembering your positive qualities in six key life domains. Please note your positive points only under the following headings:

Personal appearance

Relating to Others

How others see you

How you do your job

Your performance of daily tasks ( money management, food preparation, personal hygiene, protecting your health, self-care)

Mental functioning ( facing issues, relaxation, lessons learned)
