    There are many ways which lead us to raise our self esteem. the first thing to raise one's self esteem is that one should stop pinpointing other's mistakes and faults. One should overcome his flaws first then one will find others GOOD FRIENDLY and FLAWLESS.

    If someone tries to put you down on purpose, defeat their purpose by letting it just fall flat. Dismiss the negative communication by saying out loud or silently to yourself, "That's just one person's opinion. " To make it even better for your self esteem, try saying something to the effect, "I disagree with your opinion and I know many other people who really know me, they will disagree as well." This technique works better if you make yourself believe what you say.

    A prophet in the East, lived from hand to mouth and didn't hold any earthly possessions. At meal time he would knock on the doors and collect food for just that meal. One evening, the prophet, was knocking on the doors in the neighborhood for his dinner. An unkind lady who answered the door was enraged to see a beggar, and she let him have it. She unleashed a barrage of insults and choice words at him.

    The prophet thanked her and "returned" her what she had "offered" him. As a enunciate, he told her, he did not keep what he could not use right away. At the time, he said, all he needed was food. So he "gave her back" what she gave him and left with a smile on his face.

    Don't we wish we had a self esteem like that?



    If you want to really feel good about yourself, you have to do just two things:
    One, stop criticizing others, and second, stop criticizing yourself.
    Accepting others helps one to accept oneself. When we love others and open our heart to them, we really like ourselves more than we ever did before. If we are at war with ourselves, we are at war with others.

    Criticism and intolerance creates barriers between us and the others. Feeling connected with others brings down the inner tension. Stop judging others and it may help you to quit judging yourself.
