Get rid of the assholes that surrounds you! Works wonders for me.
I take action and accomplish something.
practice security, every minute of every day. We women are great at practicing insecurity and we need to do the opposite. Every single thought we have that is negative/insecure we need to counter it with the opposite...
For example: I'm ugly. counter with "my dh married me because he loves me for me, he thinks i'm beautiful"...etc. It's hard. But if you can do it every single time, it becomes habit and your life will change.
Plus, i love what ReadWriteLuv said...it is sooooo easy to get moped out by the sweats and stuck in the house. I get dressed "nice" daily, brush my hair, put on shoes (very important) and even walk outside for a second even if is it just down the driveway.
Practice every day - if you can't say something positive about yourself then try to just recognize and stop any negative talk. Just when you start in on yourself, say "Stop, I wouldn't say that to my best friend or worst enemy" and soon you will know you don't deserve it.
So much good advice already. I do agree with the getting dressed each morning - taking the time to make yourself look presentable will motivate you to do well in all you tackle that day. I also completely agree with the moms who encouraged you to practice security.
What do I do when I have low self esteem? I usually cry, and then talk to my DH about it and he is always there with the right things to say. :)
