    Through high school quite a few people have chased me, and some of them were absolute bomb shells. One asshole told me in my face that he thought I was ugly and somehow I took his word for it, while ignoring the fact that some pretty people liked me. What he said to me stayed with me my entire high school and even now when girls talk to me I still think about what he said to me and then I would question their motives behind coming to talk to me. God I wish I had never met that fucking asshole.

    Beautiful woman, beautiful soul, beautiful story. As a 20 year old woman, I am struggling to accept my life and my self. Ive been insecure all my life…it’s like a battle I can never win but it’s just within. I hope to discover the beauty of myself. I hope to radiate it to the universe. I know I am good hearted, kind, funny, loving soul. I deserve to be happy…time to introduce myself.

  15. Lucentio on February 7, 2019 at 7:21 pm

    I want to ask: what can I do to help a friend who has a very low self-esteem? he keeps blaming himself about anything, avoids socializing because he thinks people’s life would be better without him.

  21. YIKE HAN on February 7, 2019 at 7:27 pm

    in my culture, people used to become modesty. people just like to follow others, if others are modesty, they will be modesty too, even if they are unique and beautiful. i am a typical example of low self-esteem. in public, i am out-going and brave and positive. but the real me is actually self-abased, weak. follow whatever others say. i totally forget how unique and right myself is . i have been fighting against low self esteem for 3 years. i am still on the way to find my own self, i know it takes time but i will never give up. although i have lots of negative thoughts in my mind, i will try best to delete it . i do not find my "julie" right now, but maybe i can be the julie of myself. i;m glad that i see so many people have the same concern as me. let’s fight against low self esteem together, let’s never give up ourselves. we define ourselves, others will NEVER define us. always believe, you are unique you are great you are admirable you are admirable you are admirable you deserve all the love, kindness, you deserve every good things.

  22. Level1 Mallow on February 7, 2019 at 7:27 pm

    Why not just acknowledge the self-criticisms we have of ourselves as true and either resolving them or forgiving ourselves for them? Trying to block them out with positive thoughts is being fake and deluded and inwardly we all know this, that’s why it doesn’t work.

  23. Aditya Mehra on February 7, 2019 at 7:28 pm

    so , i wrote 4, but now i am blank

  24. OG Loc on February 7, 2019 at 7:28 pm

    negative schemas cannot be broken without rationalization of whats wrong with it.

  36. Paul Braiden on February 7, 2019 at 7:48 pm

    "So I checked it out with the other girls …. " Women are lucky in this way because in a group of men I would never have been able to do this. (I do know that women are not "lucky" in other ways in our society …. .)

  37. dealingwithkatherine on February 7, 2019 at 7:49 pm

  41. dikbjdfh g on February 7, 2019 at 7:57 pm

    I want to have good self esteem and truly love myself but I don’t know how to start and I have to heal but I dont know where I should go. And I don’t know how to start convos and meet people when I don’t know anybody. I don’t have anyone to talk to in my classes. And I just can’t make myself to talk them and I don’t know why bc they they don’t seem that rude. But i just can’t try to talk to them. It’s like im going to try but then I just don’t.

  42. Ali Pashazadeh on February 7, 2019 at 8:01 pm

    She inspires me to become an encourager of people. I feel like I have a gift to make people feel good about themselves.

  44. Kiran kamesh on February 7, 2019 at 8:02 pm

    self-esteem can be an important part of success. Too little self-esteem can leave people feeling defeated or depressed. It can also lead people to make bad choices, fall into destructive relationships, or fail to live up to their full potential. But what about too much self-esteem? Narcissism can certainly be off-putting and can even damage personal relationships.

    Self-esteem levels at the extreme high and low ends of the spectrum can be damaging, so the ideal is to strike a balance somewhere in the middle. As you might imagine, there are different factors that can influence self-esteem. Genetic factors that help shape overall personality can play a role, but it is often our experiences that form the basis for overall self-esteem. Those who consistently receive overly critical or negative assessments from caregivers, family members, and friends, for example, will likely experience problems with low self-esteem. This speaker in this video has a perfect fulcrum that develops balance between the two extremes, so stay positive and stay bright.
