I was just wondering if people could give me tips and tricks of battling self esteem issues? I've read random things online on 'we think this way, so do this...' I don't know, to me it just feels like faceless info in an article... I wanted to see if I could get more personal feedback on maybe things people personally do to stop the little voice in your head when it's thinking of negative stuff, haha
I'm 21 and have low esteem - I am, of course, overweight and it probably stems from that and bullying I endured in high school. I'm in my third year of a course at university and only now accepting some traits in myself... But I still have a lot of trouble viewing myself as worth of anything - I dress and get called 'cute' a few times laterly, yet I just can't bring myself to accept people's compliments... I worry a lot on what others think or how I look at the time. For example I have a lot of trouble with photos - someone has a camera my brain automatically thinks I'm going to look horrible in the next shot and I'll then tense up and end up just not looking natural in anything.
I would just like advice I getting your self to stop beating your self up haha.
