When it comes to bullying, self-confidence disappears. As a person keeps pushing you down, it is important to try to find ways to get yourself back on your feet. Focus on all of the wonderful things that make you, you. Here are some tips to help you out!
Emphasize strengths. Applaud yourself for trying, instead of focusing on what may feel like failures. Giving credit to yourself for trying something new let’s you feel a sense of pride.
Take risks. Doing something new things opens your sense of self-acceptance. Look at new experience as opportunities to learn, instead of seeing them as a win or lose situation. Every possibility could turn into an opportunity for failure, which could often prevent personal growth.
Use Self-Talk. Nobody is perfect, and you cannot push yourself to be perfect. Use this method to counteract harmful assumptions you may have against yourself. Think of three positive features of yourself whenever you’re in doubt. Remember, you’re striving to do the best that you can and you’re improving with each passing day!
Self-Evaluate. Relying on the opinion of others is unhealthy. Evaluate yourself independently. Always needing to hear opinions from others comes with a feeling of turmoil. Learning to compliment yourself will relieve that feeling, as well as make you strong. Giving yourself positive feedback on your work, behavior, etc., will give you a healthier, positive outlook of yourself.
