self esteem

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Hi guys, my posting really isn't as frequent as it used to be eh?

any tips on boosting self esteem, i feel really shit about myself especially appearance wise and need to get it sorted instead of wallowing in self pity. Don't want life to pass me by. Also at university, don't want those I like to get sick of me.

Practical suggestions ie books, exercises

Thanks

    Get your slap on, wear a short skirt, get your tits out and get pissed. Believe me it works wonders.

    you dont have to go out and buy short skirts and make yourself look like a slapper. Ive been feeling shit recently and im going to get my hair done today, its the sillyest littlest thing but i know i will feel a bit better when i come out. Treat yourself to something, something you've had your eye on for a while but always put off buying. Go buy a new batch of makeup, just treat youself!!!!! :D

    This is not what TheSite.org is all about, please stop it.


    To the person who started the thread: look in the Info section in the Health factsheets. We have two articles about self esteem that may be helpful to you.

    Okay what i originally said was meant to be sarcastic. Its not my fault she gets on my tits. But yes i agree what i said was wrong. Bah.

    Hi leese, I completely agree with you, getting dressed up like a sad slapper and getting pissed and making a complete fool out of yourself might make you feel good about youself for like a couple of hours but the next morning you'll feel really bad.

    Coming from someone who sometimes suffers from lse, you should go on a shopping trip with your girlfriends and buy some really nice flattering clothes that make you look and feel good. Not to attract men, but to make you think "I look great!" Then wear these clothes to school and you'll be a sassy student! Do you belong to any clubs? I joined Taekwon-do last year and it honest to God did wonders for my self-esteem, just knowing I could kick the butt of someone who crossed me was brilliant! J/k. Doing a martial art is excellent for gaining confidence, especially when you gain a new belt.

    Why don't you go out on the town with your female friends, not to pull, but just to look great and have fun! I do that sometimes with my friends and its brilliant.

    And coming from another "angry feminist" you go girl!

    errr this is a simple trick and it dont work permenently but just think of 3 things that you are really good at. simple.
    ie:
    im good at:
    Maths
    Science
    English

    they dont have to be about school i could be anything ie: good listener but i was just a bit bored and those three came to my head the fastest. you can even go on and do loads more. just makes you feel better about urself in the long run. anyway it works for me but perhaps because im a guy im not so deep and therefore i dont need as much to cheer me up.....
