For many of us, self-esteem can be a challenge. We find ourselves filled with self-doubt, hesitation, and reluctance to try new things. Taking the time necessary to understand why you are struggling with self-esteem may be a great first step in working towards fixing it. People with a healthy level of self-esteem share several traits. These traits are explained below.

#1: An Attitude of Humility

Those with positive self-esteem tend to show humility. There will be times when you are not the best at something. That is perfectly understandable and okay. That is when you can look to those who may have more experience. Having humility will help you as you work towards higher self-esteem.

#2: Keep the Past in the Past and the Present in the Present

Staying in the moment can have many benefits. You may have had previous experiences that make you second guess yourself or think you are not good enough to do or try certain things. Try not to think about those past experiences. Stay in the moment, and try to step outside of your comfort zone.

#3: Confident Decision-Making Skills

Many of us struggle with decision-making. Even small choices can take up excessive time and energy because of our indecisive attitude. Learning to believe in our ability to make decisions can be powerful for us in gaining self-esteem. For some, indecision stems from the fear of making the wrong choice. We worry that if we pick the wrong thing, something will go wrong, or that we will look bad or uneducated. Believing that you can and will make the best decision for you is powerful and vital.

Developing a healthy level of self-esteem will improve every area of your life. Low self-esteem can impact our relationships, employment, and daily activities. We may be afraid to try new things or step outside of our comfort zones. Working to examine underlying emotions will help people to understand why they feel a low level of self-esteem.
