Have you ever felt uncomfortable when someone gave you a compliment? Many people have a hard time accepting compliments from others. When you have low self-esteem or hear a kind word from someone, it may contradict how you feel about yourself. To get over this dilemma: 1. Accept yourself. Acceptance is the ability to unconditionally love all of who you are. Not some but "all" of you. That means you acknowledge all of yourself--the good and the things that you need improvement on. For most of us, self-acceptance can be hard. You can't fix everything about your physical appearance because God created you. Create words of affirmation for yourself to build up self esteem. 2. Learn to get a rid of biases Whatever thoughts, concerns, hate or negative views that you have of yourself, let go and put it aside, and concentrate on what you love about yourself. 3. Overcome your fears from what others think of you: Don't let what others think of you--stand in your way. Do something unique in ways you think are best for you. * Read scripture * Pray and talk to God *Develop a relationship with him. * Take yourself out or do something nice. Remember that no one can Love yourself more than you could first but God.
