Having a low self esteem can be disguised in such subtle ways that perhaps you don’t even realise you may have a tendency to under value yourself.
It’s not uncommon to be so used to feeling undervalued, that it feels normal, and it’s not registered as something that could be made better.
These guided meditations are specifically created to help you connect and identify with a greater part of yourself that you may be unaware you possess.
This has the potential to shift the way you see yourself.
What kinds of behaviour or actions could be an indicator that you under value yourself?
Your honest answer to the following questions may bring this to your attention:
Do you tend to put other people’s needs before your own?
Do you have times when you think your opinion is not that important?
Do you sacrifice having time for yourself because there are more important things to do?
Do you say yes when you really want to say no?
Do you feel pressure to meet other people’s expectations?
Are you worried about what other people think of you?
Do you force yourself to go to social events when you’d rather not go?
Do you feel uncomfortable voicing how you truly feel?
Are you uncomfortable showing the real you to others?
Do you hide behind a persona?
Have you built a wall around yourself to keep other people at a distance?
Do you find it hard to accept gifts?
Do you find it hard to accept acts of generosity from others?
Do you feel obliged to return a favour?
Do you find it hard to accept a compliment?
If you answered yes even just a few times, you may have a tendency to under value yourself.
You might be someone who doesn’t need a questionnaire to figure out if you have low self-esteem. You might just know that you do.
You might do this in ways like:
– Always putting yourself down.
– Constantly beating yourself up over the smallest of things.
– Wishing you were someone else.
– Wishing you never existed.
Low self-worth can be so ingrained inside you that it can feel like it would take a momentous task to get yourself to a place, where you could even start to get a glimmer of self-love.
If this is you, don’t lose hope. Don’t give up on yourself. Persevere!
Sometimes you just have to chip away at it, and do a little bit each day.
Sometimes, finding your self-worth can be more a journey about discovering who you really are, rather than making attempts at masking insecurities with positive thinking or affirmations.
Some questions that can help you with this discovery include:
Who are you really?
Is there more to you than meets the eye?
How willing are you to discover the depth of who you are?
How many layers lay hidden within you, waiting for you to become aware of?
Is there a higher aspect of yourself, and can you connect with it?
