You Have Low Self Esteem 92% of the Time You're definitely in a low place right now, but you also know deep down that you can get out of your funk.
Take a chance and make a new friend or try a new interest. Shaking things up will give you the self-esteem boost you need!

Well, I ticked every single box ecxcept the first and the last, so I shouldn't be surprised!  :'(

Hey, my friend. :)<br />
I'm a little confused actually.. <br />
Thanks for commenting, I appreciate that.. but of course this story was from Feb 16th, and I had just lost my best friend on EP, the one who called me her big brother. I was fairy low at that time. <br />
bout you coment.. it the words "Accept yourself and Love yourself" but I have always had difficulty understanding this, and even come to hate hearing it, as I really never knew HOW. I lacked technique.<br />
Before I joined EP I was at my worst. In mid January, I had no contact with anyone. Nobody thought anything of me at all, soopinions did not make a difference, they were absent. I spent all my time in the company of my SELF. I tend to judge myself harshly, as a lot of people do. I keep seeking-out and adding new friend on EP. They (you) do accept me, but I think I can only get a part of the way through the flattery of social acceptance.. I still spend the majority of my time alone with myself. I needed to develop specific techniques of raising my self-esteem through retraining my thought-habits.<br />
I have detailed these in the answer I gave to today's question from SilentlySuffering.<br />
<br />
"you will find that you're only on the outside around people you probably don't like anyway. Hang around people you like and you quickly become on the inside." ~this whole bit has me totally confused... become what on the inside?

New friends, new interest, new adventures. Anything where you can accomplish something will raise your self esteem. And try to not have negative thoughts about yourself. You are fine just the way you are. Low self esteem comes from caring what other people think and you don't really know what they think and even if you did, why would their opinion of you matter. You can only be you and thats fine. Accept yourself, love yourself and your self esteem will soar. Seek out people who accept you the way you are and you will find that you're only on the outside around people you probably don't like anyway. Hang around people you like and you quickly become on the inside. Raise self esteem by accepting you. Hope this helps. :)

New friends are great for self-esteem. :)

hmmm.. hmmm... what to say.. lol..
