Self esteem problems
and their solutions

Here is a list of five problems that most people don't associate with having low self esteem. But I've not only listed the problems I've also listed the solutions.

So I hope you find this article beneficial and useful to you in some way. And please pass this along, I know I could have used this information 10 years ago and it would have saved me a lot of pain and discomfort.

Self esteem problem #1

Overweight or obese

Usually the #1 reason why people are overweight or obese is because they don't love themselves enough to take care of themselves.

Think about it, when you truly love and accept yourself you want to physically take care of yourself.

This is a huge problem that effects millions of people.

The solution - look yourself in the face in a mirror and say, "I love and accept myself fully and completely just the way I am."Do this exercise until you believe it with all your mind, body and soul.

Self esteem problem #2

Allowing others to take advantage of you

If you let people walk all over you and you never stick up for yourself then your suffering from low self esteem.

If this is your pattern, then sometime in your life you decided that you were unworthy of acceptance and appreciation. Now's the time to reclaim it.

Make a decision right here and right now that you're not going to allow another person to treat you unfairly. You'll be so glad you did.

The solution - look yourself in the face in a mirror and say, "I love and accept myself fully and completely just the way I am."

Do this exercise until you believe it with all your mind, body and soul.

Self esteem problem #3

Depression:(

So many times in our life we feel sad or lonely and we have no idea why. We couldn't of just woke up one day and decided that life wasn't worth living anymore, could we of?

Depression does have a way of sneaking up on you. It starts off real gradual and slow. Then one day you find yourself sitting on the couch with a carton of ice cream watching some sappy movie and crying.

It's because you've lost that deep reason to live. You've allowed yourself to slip away from you unnoticed - until now.

This is one self esteem problem you need to get a grip on before it's too late.

The solution - look yourself in the face in a mirror and say, "I love and accept myself fully and completely just the way I am."Do this exercise until you believe it with all your mind, body and soul.

Self esteem problem #4

Negative thinking

Once you get stuck in that rut of negative thinking your whole life seems to follow that same path.

Your life starts to become so packed full of negative energy that you literally don't have any energy left over to do anything else.

This usually happens when you allow yourself to watch the news, read the newspaper, gossip with co-workers, argue with family members, be dishonest to your partner, etc. All this negativity starts to erode your entire life.

The solution - look yourself in the face in a mirror and say, "I love and accept myself fully and completely just the way I am."Do this exercise until you believe it with all your mind, body and soul.

Self esteem problem #5

Feelings of anger, frustration, and resentment

When your suffering from low self esteem you begin to take everything personally. Anytime someone does something rude or inconsiderate you dwell on it for days sometimes weeks, or even years.

This drains your emotional energy and causes you to feel anger, frustrated and resentful the majority of the time. I bet you can think of a lot of situations that left you feeling that way. We all can.

The solution - look yourself in the face in a mirror and say, "I love and accept myself fully and completely just the way I am."Do this exercise until you believe it with all your mind, body and soul.

No, you're not reading the same solution to each of these problems by accident. I totally meant to do that. Why?

Because the solution to all these problems are the same. If you completely love and accept yourself from the inside out with no if, ands, or buts about it, you'll be shielded from all this external stuff.

Yes, these negative things will still happen to you but you won't dwell them anymore.

When you don't dwell, you can easily move right through these issues. To me that's considered high self esteem because that deep sense of knowing that no matter what anyone else says or does to you, you'll never take any of it personally again.

If someone is having a bad day and you run into them and they try to put you down and make you feel just as crappy as they do, you can just brush it off and keep going about your day because deep inside you know it has nothing to do with you personally.

You'll be a lot happier and a lot less likely to suffer if you simply just realize that most people are hurting and they lack the confidence to make changes.

Don't be one of those people who take everything out on others just because your so upset with life that you don't know what else to do.

Deal with your own self esteem problems and you'll provide the world with one more happy person ready to share a smile.:)
