The Best Way to Increase Self-Esteem
How to gain confidence
So you are looking into ways and techniques to enable you to gain confidence and increase self-esteem. Well guess what? You have come to the right place as in this article I will be providing free tips and advice about this very subject, I hope you enjoy the read.
I spent the first twenty-two years of my life having to cope with a stuttering problem. To say that this had a negative affect on my life would be a massive under-statement. I was a person that often settled for second best and who often found himself in a rather depressed mood. I was less than impressed with the hand of cards that I had been dealt and was full of self pity. I believed, in my negative way, that I would struggle at the dating game, I would struggle to forge a successful career and that I would therefore have a rather unhappy future. What was the point? Where was the hope? Why should I even bother to get dressed in the mornings? These were questions that I asked myself on a regular basis. I became in a form of rut and could see no way out.
No longer loner
It was not until my early twenties that I was to emerge out of this negativity. No longer was I going to accept second best, no longer was I going to be a depressive, no longer was I going to fear social situations and no longer was I going to be a loner.
What did I do to gain this new found optimism? Well alcohol of all things is the answer to this question. Ever since I had become a young adult, aged 16 or 17, I had been drinking rather too much alcohol. When intoxicated I could speak as fluently as the next man, I was happy, I was fearless, I was confident and I was care-free. Now do not worry the solution to your confidence and self-esteem issues is not to become drunk every night but what had this experience with alcohol taught me? Well quite simply it showed me that I was able to speak fluently and that I could be happy.
I just had to live life when sober as I did when I was drink. For example I had to learn to be far more positive, far more care-free and far more stress-free. I am a decent human being, I am kind and I am honest.
The future looks brighter
I have also now realised that I have actually been dealt a very good hand of cards, I am one of life’s lucky ones. The future sure looks bright now!
I have certainly come a long way and I am sure that you can also do the same.
