Being able to love oneself, imperfections and all is one of the best traits an individual can have. But how many of us are comfortable in our own skin? The irony is that in spite of individuality being encouraged so much nowadays, we are still trying to desperately fit into moulds that are just not made for us. In the end we often like the idea of how we want to be, rather than who we are.
Having a negative image of oneself can seriously affect self-esteem. If not dealt with in the early stages, low self-esteem can lead to serious problems such as anxiety, fear, and depression. Low self-esteem is usually the result of negative experiences that can cause an individual to doubt his/her self-worth. Experiences play a major role in deciding one’s self-esteem. And all successes and failures in life are built on the foundation of self-worth. But this doesn’t mean that people with self-confidence never experience failures. Self-confident individuals treat failure as a valuable life lesson instead of letting it consume them. They focus on the moral rather than the story.
