An Open Letter to the Person with a Low Self Esteem

An Open Letter to the Person with a Low Self Esteem


Dear Genius,

Do you know 85 percent of people in today’s world suffer from low self-esteem? It is a sad, gut-wrenching fact, isn’t it? Let’s get straight into the rabbit hole and find the light at the end of the tunnel.

Have you ever reached a point where you have lost control of the negative chatter, and you can’t stop criticizing and defaming yourself?

Fighting a demon that lives inside your head can be your biggest strength and tragedy. Feeling of complete hopelessness, detachment even from your loved ones, self-loathing are few of the signs of the demon inside you winning.

Open LetterThe sole reason you are going down the pit of self-loathing is the negative chatter being played on a loop. Whether it was one horrendous childhood incident or a terrible relationship; any pain you are going through this moment is because you are living in that past.

All you need to do is let go and embrace the present. Because when you do, your light will dazzle your own being and the world around you

The problem isn’t the issue or the other person, but it is your own thinking. There isn’t anyone in this world whose life is perfect and hasn’t gone through their share of pain. If you see someone smiling and happy, all it means is that they are consciously choosing to be happy.

One of the biggest causes of comparison and feeling bad about your self arises from social media. We see others happy, traveling and smiling and our own life appears dull, imperfect and inadequate. But the truth is social media is just a trailer, a highlight reel of their own life. No one puts their tears, their pain, and their struggle for the world to see.

The solution is also not complete detachment from the world around you and existing like a cave dweller. If you choose to do that you will be a complete fool, wasting your time, talent and creating a truly dull life written with the ink of regret.

Go out, lift some weight, spend time with people you love and create what you are born to. As Mahatma Gandhi said, “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”

The lesson is to keep going forward and not get bogged down by the negative comments being thrown at you. Learn a new language or a musical instrument, celebrate every small step forward and bask in the spilling dopamine of happiness.

Our brain is our superpower, and it all depends if we use to create pain or happiness. You will only feel beautiful when you actually believe it. Wearing attractive clothes, makeup will not take away your attention from feeling unattractive. On the other hand, if you feel beautiful irrespective of your clothes, makeup, and looks, you will shine.

Instead of superficial makeovers, direct your energy in evolving towards a better you. When you feel unworthy, you subconsciously send signals to the universe, manifesting that as your reality. When you feel a victim, you project the blame onto everyone else instead of owning up your actions.

Quit putting yourself down, release those negative patterns. Remember only those words have a power that you choose to believe in.

Dear friend, there is a lot of struggle that you have to endure in your life, and the last thing you want is you against yourself. Believe that you are meant to achieve greatness, excel at whatever you choose to do and let these words play on a loop in your head, forever

Yours
The person who was once exactly where you are now.
