Being a woman is incredible and amazing, yes? We are sometimes the rock of the family, the sought after friend and the go to person in our workplace. It’s also tough and frustrating being a woman too. We often feel like failures and that we’re just not good enough. 

Sadly, many women have low self esteem and low self confidence. Too many of us compare ourselves to the ‘other girl’ in the office or to ‘John’s wife’ who is simply amazing. 

Why can’t we be like her? She’s full of confidence and she oozes self-worth. You can almost feel it when you’re in the same room as her. How can we be like her?

Jealousy is the destroyer of self-esteem

It’s easy to get caught in the jealousy trap especially when we have little to no self confidence. We think everyone is better than us and we become jealous of all they have and who they are. 

When we stop comparing ourselves to others, we can look deep inside and realize that we too are amazing and beautiful. It’s important to remember one thing, people only show you what’s on the outside and what they want you to see. 

John’s wife may not be that amazing behind closed doors. Her life might be a total wreck and full of chaos and sadness. No one knows for sure. We compare ourselves to what people want us to see and we need to stop doing that.

Being jealous of another woman only closes the door for us to be happy in our skin and love who we are. That won’t happen as long as you keep comparing yourself to the next woman. Jealousy will kill your self esteem and self confidence. 

Go away, jealousy. No room for you here!

We are the products of our upbringing

For many women it’s hard to have any self worth or self confidence when we were told our whole lives that we’re worthless, stupid and will always be a failure. Being in and out of toxic relationships will also destroy any self worth or self respect. 

So many of us have toxic negative thoughts about ourselves plugged deep in and it’s hard to wipe out years of belittling and bullying. Rewiring our brain will take some work and some time. 

But it’s not impossible!

Positive affirmations have been around since the beginning of the 20th century and there’s no doubt they work. Ask anyone who uses them daily to bring about happiness, abundance and joy in their life. 

The power of affirmations and uplifting quotes 

How many times have you scrolled through Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest and read an amazing quote and said out loud “hell ya”? The problem with that is we read them and then dismiss them. 

Affirmations and uplifting quotes are only effective if you actually affirm them and repeat them throughout the day. You need to feel those words in your heart and soul. Write them out and tape them to your bathroom mirror, your coffee maker, your computer monitor or any other place you will see them often throughout the day, and then read them aloud again!

That’s how they work. And they will improve your self-esteem and emotions if you work them.
