How to Build your Self Esteem?

Ask Free Question

Do you believe that the world is a hostile place and you are a victim? Are you the one who often doubts his or her abilities? If so, you might be showing signs of low self-esteem. Interestingly, self-esteem has nothing do with your actual ability or talent. Your looks, weight or skills are not responsible for your low self esteem. It largely depends upon the fact that how you value yourself.

It has been observed in most cases that self-esteem is often affected by a number of reasons, including ill-health, unpleasant memories from the past, and termination of relationships. Low self-esteem is generally marked in survivors of physical or sexual abuse, victims of racial discrimination or people who have had a traumatic past life.

If you don’t pay attention towards this issue, you might end up developing certain serious mental disorders. Low self-esteem is also the root cause behind the occurrence of mental disorders like borderline personality disorder, depression, etc. However, there is nothing to worry about it. There are certain simple things that are useful in building up your self-esteem.

Here’s all that you need to do to start believing in yourself and be confident about your capabilities:

1. Remember your strong points: Make three separate lists of your strengths; achievements and your qualities that you admire. Take help from your friends, parents and other well-wishers for preparing these lists. These lists will help you in understanding your abilities and goodness. You will be able to believe in your strengths. You must read through these lists at least once daily.

2. Be positive: Optimism and a positive approach towards life are the key to success. Your self-esteem is influenced by the fact that how you look at life. Life is not a bed of roses. It is unavoidable that you will have to face critical situations or problems in life. But, what is important is to face them with courage and a faith in your own abilities. Be positive and stop developing negative thoughts about yourself. Get rid of thoughts like ‘I am a loser’; ‘I can’t get rid of this problem’; etc.

3. Take care of your body: Your outward appearance sometimes works wonders in lifting up your inner-self and spirits. Keep yourself clean, trim your beard or hairs; cut your nails; don’t forget to floss your teeth and maintain overall personal hygiene to develop a feeling of goodness.

4. Sleep well: A good night’s sleep is essential for boosting up your self - esteem.

5. Eat right: A balanced diet is a key to good health. Eating the right food in the right way keeps your mental and physical health all right. Include minerals and vitamins in your regular meals. Avoid distractions like television or radio while taking meals.

6. Exercise: Regular workouts keep you away from mental-ill health.

7. Be cool and comfortable first: When it comes to your dressing, try to put on attires that you can carry well. Wear stuffs that you love the most. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

How to Deal with a Person Suffering from Borderline Personality?

MPhil Clinical Psychology, Masters in Psychology
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
If someone in your family or your partner is suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder, your mental health is at stake too. You will have to take care of yourself and your emotional needs first. Life can be frustrating for you all the time. But, you need to identify your feel good activities and take some time out of your daily life to relax and calm down. Remember, you can succeed in the critical task of appeasing or pleasing your dear one with BPD, only when you are at peace with yourself first. Destress yourself to fight back the depression or emotional drainage caused by handling a BPD patient.

Here are few things that can help you have a better life while being in a relationship with a person suffering from BPD:

1. Don t isolate yourself: You must be in touch with people you like to be with. You need emotional support from friends and family to deal with life. Spending some quality time with friends and family members can add little happiness to your life. It will boost up your energy level to fight back the dark side of life. You must remember that you have a life as well.

2. Take care of your health: Sometimes, relatives of BPD patients forget to take care of their physical health. They forget basic stuffs like having proper meals, exercising, etc just because they are caught-up in a stressful relationship. But, remember you can help your loved one better only when you are physically fit.

3. Manage stress: Don t get anxious or depressed with the ongoing stress in your life. It will only add to your existing problems. Keep your nerves cool to have a better life for yourself as well as your sweetheart with BPD.

4. Believe in the 3c s formula: Well, it is a formula recommended by most of the mental health practitioners. Don t blame yourself for the irrational behaviour of your friend or dear one. The patient with BPD is solely responsible for his or her destructive behaviour or abnormal outburst. You will have to remember these 3c s: I didn't cause it; I can't cure it; and I can't control it.

5. Careful communication: You have to be very careful while communicating with BPD patients. Don t argue or try to convince them, when they are already in a disturbed frame of mind or agitated. They might end up getting destructive. Listen to their words carefully and patiently. Occasional nodding in between a conversation is advisable to let them feel assured about the fact that they are being heard and understood.

Don t forget to acknowledge their feelings. It is also important that you stay calm when the patient is angry and has turned destructive.

How to Become Resilient?

Life is full of challenges. We all have our own ways of dealing with stress and strains of life. But, a strong sense of resilience can make you different from others. Winners don t do different things, but they do it differently. That s what you need to keep in mind. While there are hundreds of strategies to deal with stress, you need to learn the best ones to increase your sense of resilience. The more resilient you are, the better is your chance of succeeding in life. Your power of resilience is like an armour that will guard you in the battlefield of life. Here s all that you need to know about how to become more resilient. From personal tragedies to occupational hazards, you will be able to deal with everything under the sun by following the tips below:

1. Acceptance towards change: It is important for all of us to accept a simple fact that life is dynamic in nature. Nothing in our lives is permanent. Situations and events change in our lives, bringing occasional bliss or sorrows. Therefore, if you realize the fact that change is an indispensable part of life and be a little flexible, you will automatically become more resilient.

2. Be realistic: You must have a realistic outlook towards life. Don t let your mind be preoccupied with fanciful ideas or build castles in the air. Realism and pragmatism are the fundamentals to a healthy living. If you have a pragmatic mind and understand the real problems in life, you will not lose hope too soon. Therefore, you will be more resilient than others as you have already prepared yourself for the worst things in life by understanding the reality.

3. Control your emotions: It has been often noticed that when scuba divers drown, they are still left with enough oxygen in their tanks. It is because they have pulled off their oxygen masks at the time of danger. Researchers believe that most of us, when in danger, lose our senses and start panicking. This worsens the situation and aggravates the problems in our lives, destroying harmony and peace. Therefore, a person with better sense of resilience has better control over his emotions as well. Don t freak out or panic at the time of danger or get depressed over an issue for long. You must have a fighting attitude in life and be prepared to face the worst.

4. Be a good communicator: It is quite true that most of our problems can be sorted out by communication. If you maintain proper communication with people and yourself and keep all channels of communication open, you will have solutions to various problems in life. This boosts your confidence and sense of resilience.

Try and know what about his home situation is making him angry. It looks like he is displacing his anger outside which he may not be able to express within family. You can help him understand that you are noticing changes in his behaviour off late and encourage him to seek help from a professional to deal with his anger as well as family situations. I don't know much about situations at his home but communicating with family can solve some things for him. As a friend you can be present for him and try to make him see things from different perspective.

My wife is always irritating and frustrating We have just completed 4 months of marriage. She is not happy with my mom's interface and behavior. She always cry in 2 days for some reason. I try to make her feel good but she is always in bad mood. How should I make her feel comfortable and not feel frustrated.

It looks like she is going through adjustment difficulties in the new household. In this house, you are the only person on whom she is depending. Encourage her to communicate openly with you to tell you what is bothering her, what would she like to do in the present situation, try to know the reason that what about your mother's behaviour is bothering her so much. It would be good if she can directly talk through Lybrate or any other source to a professional. You can take her out, and when her mood is better then ask her these things. Generally the tendency is that whenever someone is complaining against our own people we become defensive. I will suggest you to be objective and try to understand her from different perspective. And then you can talk to your mother later on but not taking your wife's name.

Medication helps you in managing your anxiety. If you are feeling any symptoms after medicine, you should contact your psychiatrist. He can revise your doses. I can't say what is the level of your anxiety so I won't suggest you any alternative to it. But yes you can start meeting a clinical psychologist for therapy. It is seen that with therapy, dose of medication can come down. Go to somebody who can start cbt with you. All the best. Feel free to contact me.

After reading what you have asked, i would say that its not easy to tell you in few lines what to do to help yourself, I think the good idea would be to meet a counselor and discuss your concerns. There seem to be complicated things in your life and a counselor can help you learn skills to cope with these issues. It can take few sessions of intervention.

Why Having a Sibling Is Good for Your Health?

MPhil Clinical Psychology, Masters in Psychology
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
The World Health Organisation defines health as "A state of physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." And, this state of physical, mental and social health is obtained when we surround ourselves with happy people who love and care for us. A sibling is one such person. Ever since our childhood, siblings are the ones we depend on. We fight them, argue with them and even torment them at times. And, with time, our love for our siblings only grows stronger.

How can your sibling help you achieve good health?
An elder or a younger sibling can help you achieve good health. How? Let's find out.

1. Physical exercise is extremely important in order to maintain good health. Whether it is tennis or badminton or any other sport for that matter we need at least two people to play. These games help you keep fit. In fact, siblings can partake and compete in different activities together like running, hopping and skipping.

2. The competitive approach between kids while playing helps them become more sportive and playful. It helps them treat failure or loss in a positive spirit.

3. With the growing technology, the human generation is becoming lazy. And, a single child will be much more interested in staying indoors, glued to the television than go out and have fun. His physical activity is more or less suppressed. But in the company of a sibling or a friend, people tend to lean more towards going out. Hence, keeping their lifestyles healthy and fun.

4. A single child will find it boring to even occupy a swimming pool or stroll down a hill for fun during holiday tours to other places. A holiday trip with a sibling makes swimming at the hotel pool, or strolling down the pathway a lot of fun. Swimming and strolling are in fact physical activities which help a person keep fit.

5. Over a period of time the generation gap between the child and parent becomes so vast, that the child is not able to share emotions and feelings with the parent. This under severe circumstances leads to depression and in worst cases suicide. This is a case of mental ill health. Generation gap between siblings hardly exists and they find it a lot easier to share their emotions and private feelings with each other. They support and guide one another to boost each one's morale, and thus contribute to one another's mental wellbeing as well.

So, having a sibling may seem troublesome at times, but, it sure does have its boon!

This is a hard time for you. Please tell yourself that these are all valid feelings. It is a loss for you and your mind will take its time to cope with the loss. Give yourself that tie and don't be in a rush. In the meanwhile, try to seek support from your closed ones, read stories of people who have suffered loses and what helped them come out of it, make healthy friendships, follow your interests etc. When gloom and grief takes you over, quickly remind yourself that these are normal feelings and it too shall pass. Nothing in the world is permanent. It would be a good idea to do lot of physical activity at this time. For further help you can contact me.

There is no substitute to timely intervention for mental health problems. Every state has government hospital catering to psychiatric illnesses or there is psychiatry opd in most of the government hospitals. So taking your brother to any of these would be good idea.

Hi. Even if our thoughts are no longer existing we still get affected by them. A lot depends upon our perception of situations and events. It can make us feel depressed. Yes one can overcome depression if one change one's thought process. Many times it would require help of a psychologist to help one in changing our thoughts and perceptions. So it would be a good idea if you discuss with the psychologist about helping you change thoughts.

Hello lybrate-user. I can understand from you that it must be tough living with this condition for so long. And you also seem to be concerned about taking medications. I would say that nowadays there are psychological interventions which can help someday who has anxiety and depression as a condition. You need to start meeting a mental health professional who would tell you whether you would require medication or not. Psychologists are trained to deal with most of the psychological problems. It would be good idea to get in touch with psychologist soon.
