I learned a long rime ago that everyone has a self critic in their head.There is a constant voice that criticizes much of what we do.It reminds us of where we have failed, and frequently prevents us from experiencing a more joyful life. I have given that voice a nickname. I refer to it as “gloom and doom Sal”.I have learned to limit the effect on my self esteem by utilizing the words”Delete,delete delete.”
A good place to start with raising your self-esteem is by learning how to handle and to replace the voice of your own inner critic.That voice cannot own you unless you believe what it is saying. You are more than your feelings, and for every critical remark you can substitute positive speech and new beliefs.You cant completely stop the frequent reminders of your fears and failings.However you can minimize the damage it does and in the process more fully enjoy who you are.
