Hey guys! Welcome back. I think this is something that most of struggle with. We talk very negatively about ourselves and we put ourselves down because we don’t want to come off as arrogant. It makes sense in our minds, but it can often lead to low self-esteem and low self-worth. So today I wanted to share with you some tips on how you can stop being so critical of yourself. Because it’s really important for confidence and self-worth that you learn to value yourself. Therefore, here are six ways to stop criticizing yourself.
1. Start believing in yourself.
If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will either. It is really important that you have faith in yourself and your abilities. If you don’t, you won’t take the steps and the risks you need to take in order to find the success you want. So it is vital that you believe in yourself. If you want to stop criticizing yourself so much, work on believing in yourself. Write out a list of your skills and talents, a list of things you have accomplished, and a list of things you want to accomplish. And then start believing that you are capable of all of that.
2. Stop comparing yourself.
The more you compare yourself to others the harder time you have with not criticizing yourself. Because if you are comparing yourself to someone else, you are probably focusing on what they have that you do not have. So another way to stop criticizing yourself is to stop focusing on what other people are doing and focus more on yourself. Work on improving yourself based on what you need and want, not on others.
3. Stop focusing too much on your size.
Physical health is important and should be a priority. But the more you focus on that, whether you think you are too small or too big, can really lead to a lot of criticizing yourself. So it’s important to focus less on your size and more on just being healthy in general. Focus on what you are eating and doing and be kinder to your body. It’s not always about size, but more about taking care of yourself.
4. Stop putting pressure on yourself.
We often put a lot of pressure on ourselves to do more and be more. It can cause a lot of stress and can cause us to be really hard on ourselves. So it is important to put less stress on yourself and know what you can handle. The more you put on your plate, the more you have to eat. So go easy and take things a little at a time. That way, you will feel less guilty because you aren’t getting everything done.
5. Stop undervaluing yourself.
If you don’t see your own value, it is easy to criticize yourself and be negative about your self-image. So if you are working on criticizing yourself less, then it’s really essential to start recognizing your value. Because the more you undervalue yourself, the easier it is to point out the flaws and the negativity that you are trying to steer away from. So find your value and focus on that as much as you can.
6. Start looking at how far you’ve come.
It’s not easy when you are so used to focusing on the negative, but to overcome criticizing yourself, it’s important to focus on the positive. So start recognizing your accomplishments and successes. Celebrate them. Write them down. Allow yourself to be aware of all that you are doing and how wonderful that is. You will start to feel a lot better about yourself that way.
