I am amazing just for being me

Low self-esteem and low self-worth can stop us from feeling self-confident, which can often lead to anxiety and depression. This can also lead to relationship problems and a lot of stress in life.

  • Do you ever give your power away to another person?
  • Do things for other people and compromise yourself?
  • Dress yourself in a way that you think another person will like?
  • Sacrifice yourself to get feedback from other people?
  • Do things you would prefer not to do but don’t want to upset another person?

Why do we sacrifice ourselves for another? It is very easy for us to become needy of affirming feedback from other people! We are very quick to modify our own behaviour in hope of getting recognition from others.

What if: We learn to live in a way that knows we are amazing just for being us! We are not amazing because of what we wear or what we do, or the feedback and recognition we receive from other people … We are already amazing! This would really build self-esteem.

What if: People were taught to live knowing that no matter what choices they made people knew they were amazing just for being themselves?

Why is recognition from other people so important? Is it possible that: A contributing factor to many people’s issues in life is that they start to seek feedback from the world from either what they look like or from what they do? This feedback soon becomes very needed by a person and they soon forget to value how they feel about themselves - this leads to low self esteem and low self-worth.

When a person forgets that they are amazing for who they are, not what they do or what they look like, the feedback from the world influences how they feel about themselves.

What is sad is that it is this feedback that has significant psychological impacts on a person and can influence their whole life.

One of our most important roles not just to building self-esteem, but in every day, is to teach any person you spend time with, including yourself, that they are awesome, amazing and loveable just for being them.

A person is not awesome for the grades they get at school, they are not amazing because of the clothes they wear or how pretty they look, they are not loveable because of the way they cuddle you and bring you a treat ... they are awesome, amazing and loveable just for being them.

By introducing this language in your daily life you will be supporting people, including yourself, to know that no matter what, you will always love them just for being them. You may not always like their behaviour choices but you will always love them just for being them. The value with this language is that it has the potential to impact a person’s life forever! With this language a person’s opinion of themselves becomes based on who they are, and not what they do!

Remember, a person’s opinion of themselves is of far greater importance than the opinion or feedback that comes from the world. It will significantly influence a person’s psychological well-being both in the short-term and long-term.

I Am Amazing, Awesome and Loveable just for BEING ME

When we live this way we can reduce low self-worth, stress and anxiety and build self-esteem. This leads to better relationships and a sense of purpose and joy in our lives.
