5 Ways To Feel Better About Yourself
What is self-esteem? Self-esteem can be defined as our overall assessment positive or negative of ourselves. What factors affect our self-esteem? The psychologist Jennifer Crocker has developed a concept called contingencies of self-worth , which are areas that our self-esteem is contingent on. For example, you may care a lot about being a good parent, being a student, being a friend, or being an athlete. If so, each of these areas are ones that your self-esteem is contingent on. In one study investigating this, research participants were asked to report on their acceptances and rejections when applying to graduate school.

I struggled with self-care for a long time. Back then, I was solely focused on numbing myself. I was in too much pain and too ashamed of what had happened to me. It hurt too much to think about it. In the process, I had completely disconnected from myself, my body, and my needs. What helped was when I learned about the long-term impact of trauma, what the long term impact of toxic stress on my body. I could easily see how the abuse I suffered made me not want to talk about the past, feel my feelings, or want to take care of my body.
I genuinely liked me. This thought was like a seed that was then planted in my brain. And every time I thought about it, I watered it. Soon enough, that seed sprouted and feelings of not being enough were just a part of who I was. I was really good at disguising those thoughts, though. Most in my circle had no idea of how I really felt. At this point, I fully acknowledged that I had some serious work to do.
