Self-esteem is the light in which we see ourselves. This light can be beautifully rosy, or dimly drab. When you have a bright outlook on yourself, your life tends to brighten up as well.
When you feel yourself coming down on yourself (and lowering your self-esteem to boot), repeat the following affirmation.
I am worthy. I am beautiful, amazing, and sublime. Everyone I encounter reflects the beauty I see in myself and they each help me to better myself even more.
Above all, remember that you are a beautiful person. You’re unique and that makes you special. Feel that every moment you exist, and whenever you meet someone, they will feel it too.
