How you feel about yourself – your sense of self-esteem – influences your life more than you might think.

It’s important to not only confident about yourself in your life, but to really have a good level of self-esteem, it’s what can not only make you more relaxed and happy, but also keep you and your loved ones safe from harm.

Of course, you already knew all of this. But for some of us: self confidence isn’t easy to come by as it is for others.

You might feel stuck – like you’re a victim, like the triggers that make you feel helpless are just too overwhelming – but the truth is that you have all you need to overcome feelings of low self-esteem or self-confidence. From children and friends, to the small things in life that make you feel good. Everything you need to overcome any trial is right at your finger tips. If you’re feeling stuck, if you’re feeling down or blue today, or if you are a victim of an abusive or restrictive situation, here are a few places you can look for help on building up yourself and getting out.

Your children

Children are incredible at being naturally self-confident. If a child wants something, they will continue to ask for it repeatedly until they get it. Children aren’t as exposed to certain situations that many of us adults are, so they’re a great place to look for inspiration and guidance on building self-confidence, believe it or not.

Your friends

Friends – even just the friend you see once a month at the grocery store – can be remarkable sources of helping you build confidence and self-esteem. Reach out to a friend today if you’re feeling in need of a boost. Ask for a hug or just a hand on your shoulder and you’ll be amazed at what it can do.

Yourself

We’re all born with confidence, it’s something that is natural for our survival. However we may have lost our confidence as we grew up, it is undoubtedly still there. If you’re looking for a bit more confidence today, consider these tips on instantly building self confidence and go on knowing you can change things.

It’s not an easy road, going from low self confidence to feeling some sense of worth. But if you’re a victim (especially as a parent): you deserve to get out and feel good about yourself. Starting today, right now.
