#4 Get rid of the people who pull you back
Sometimes people do not realize how much they are influenced by the people around them. You could have plenty of friends, but not all of them are your real friends. Or there could be people in your office, who pull you down and repress you. And sometimes you may not even realize this.
Think about all the friends, acquaintances, relative, or coworkers who do not make you feel good about yourself, but actually make you believe that you are not good enough. Once you realize who these people are, get rid of them as soon as possible. Stop meeting them and talking to them. Get the out of your circle of close people.
And most importantly stop allowing them treat you in a way you do not deserve. It is time to stand up for yourself. You will soon notice that you feel much better about yourself and that your self-esteem is much higher than it used to be.
#5 Treat yourself as your best friend
How do people treat their best friends? They are nice to them, they complement them on their looks, and you are very careful not to hurt them. So, why do not you do the same thing to yourself? You could treat yourself the same nice and polite way and you will see that soon your self-esteem will become much higher than it used to be.
The most important thing is not to feel guilty about yourself and not to blame yourself constantly for your flaws. Like yourself the way you are because people come and go, but you are the one who will always be with yourself. Remember that.
