Being unique is amazing. Everyone is different, and you should be proud of everything that makes you a unique individual. Often when people suffer from mental health issues, it can create feelings of shame or isolation. Learning to embrace all that makes you unique is powerful. Work with a mental health professional to begin your journey of better understanding your mental health issues and to learn to celebrate all that makes you special and unique. Here are a few tips to get you started as you begin that healing journey.

Avoid Making Comparisons

Nothing hinders your uniqueness more than comparing yourself to other people. It is natural to want to compare your journey with the journey of other people. However, if this comparison is beginning to hinder your ability to see your worth and damage your self-esteem, then you should stop comparing yourself to others.

Focus On Your Strengths

When you focus on your strengths, you will begin to see your worth. If you are someone who struggles with your self-esteem, focusing on areas where you excel can be a great place to start. Try to determine where your struggle with self-esteem comes from. Acknowledging your uniqueness and learning to love it can impact every area of your life in a very positive and powerful way.

Stop Judging Yourself

Stop judging yourself for mistakes you make, past decisions you have made, or any perceived lack of abilities. Often we are our own harshest critics. You probably judge yourself more harshly than anyone else judges you. Treat yourself like you would treat your best friend.

Pursue Your Interests

Taking time to pursue your interests will help you appreciate and acknowledge your uniqueness. Focus on what you enjoy and what makes you unique. Take time to do what makes you happy, even when those activities are different from those around you. Learn to pursue those interests and celebrate what makes you special and unique.
