How well do you like and appreciate who you are?
How you feel about your self-worth is generally your self-esteem. When nothing seems to be adding up, it’s normal to feel broken, weak and defeated.
However, it’s another thing to always feel like others are better than you whether it’s in terms of their achievements or physical appearance.
If you got some issues with your self-esteem, you need a boost with these simple tips:
1. No comparison
You can never be like anyone in the entire universe and that you should get in your mind and appreciate your uniqueness. People are beautiful and talented in their own ways and you only need to make the best out of whatever you already have.
2. Love yourself more
If you don’t love yourself, who will? It all has to start with you. Be kind to yourself and stop that inner voice that reminds you that you are incapable of doing something.
3. Your appearance

Make an effort to look great every day. This way, your confidence goes up and it makes you feel good about yourself. With that sharp look, walk upright and confidently with a broad smile on your face.
4. Human is to error
Don’t strive to be a perfectionist. It’s dream you will never achieve. Mistakes make us humans and they help us learn and be better people. Just because you made a huge mistake doesn’t mean you have to pay for it with guilt for the rest of your life.
5. Handle failures with positivity
So you invested all your money in a project and it failed. You failed and you should only learn from the mistakes rather than shying away from starting again. You can do it and do it better.
6. Help someone

Be kind to others too and help those that you can. Helping others comes with some sort of inner satisfaction. It’s also a way to remind you of how important you are to the world.
7. List your abilities
Regardless of how terrible you feel about yourself, you must have some abilities. List them down and add your achievements too. You will get a reason to even love yourself more.
8. Do what makes you happy
