International Boost Self- Esteem Month ~ by Gabby

This is a good subject! So when I stumbled on this fact, I thought it was a fine idea for a post. Well, self- esteem is very important and worth drawing everyone’s attention to. February, this month of International Boost Self- Esteem is one we all should pitch in with. Do you know somebody lacking in self- esteem? Are you yourself in need of a boost of self- esteem? I think we all should pay close attention to keeping our self- esteem on an even keel. It keeps us emotionally healthy and well.

When the self- esteems suffers people can tend to do some not very wise things. I believe you all know what I’m talking about, it can be a sad thing. Making some not so smart decisions. Sometimes in relationships, sometimes with the picking up of some not so good habits. There are so many ways the lack of self- esteem just can destroy a person. I just wish it wouldn’t work like this, but sadly it does. I think another idea is, if you do know someone who could do with just a little boost…Try and help them!

I am all for helping others and so is Autumn. I think one thing we could point out to somebody in need of a boost of self- esteem is point out their good qualities to them. The things you admire about the person. You know state some positives about this person. We all need to be comfortable in our skins, it’s very easy for some and quite difficult for others. Anyway since this is boost self- esteem month, let’s all take stock of our own. If we are doing fine, let’s look at some of those who need a boost! I am not saying we should take it upon ourselves to be a therapist, physchologist or anything of the kind! Some things are better left to the professionals, you all know what I’m saying.

Just give a little boost here or there, it could help somebody out…It never hurts to try! Just spread some positives vibes, they are catching…Trust me, they really are! Spread a little here and there and everywhere, that is what the Twinnie has to say. Notice she had to make sure it rhymed? Who is with us kind readers? Any thoughts on boosting self- esteem month? Feel free to share, because sharing is always nice! 🙂 🙂

  3. 😆 Gabby its a wonderful post..but got to tell you it took me some time to stop laughing over the first image…
    loved the post…self realisation is the key…untill you love yourself you will never be able to love anything or anyone else….So agree with you..somedays you have to really push someone to get up and go and somedays just let them know you are there no matter what….
    Its such a lovely and powerful message…
    Hugs 🙂

    • Soma, the first image of the self-esteem prescription bottle is funny. 🙂 I know when Autumn found it we were laughing, but pleased with it, too. It sure makes a statement, doesn’t it? I am happy you loved the post, your words were so right on and we do have to love ourselves first. I was hoping for a good and strong message to send out there for people to read! Thanks so much for your support Soma, it means a lot. 🙂 Hugs back to you! 🙂

  4. Nice writing about self-esteem. I think it is great to be encouraging to others whenever we get a chance. When my kids were growing up, I remember in parenting classes that I “volunteered” to take, well, they told us to catch the kids doing things right. So many times parents can focus on the negative, so it is great when you can catch kids doing things right and compliment them on that. I think that is a good thing to focus on with other people, too. Catch them doing things right and let them know! I will be aware of that thought more, too. Thanks for the inspiration with your writing. Sincerely, Connie Webb

    • Thank you so much Connie, I am glad you agreed with what I wrote about self-esteem. I do try to be inspiring and thanks for mentioning it. 🙂 We do need to be encouraging to others, it’s so important. That is a wonderful point about catching kids doing the right thing and complimenting them. It’s the way to go, if you concentrate on only the negatives, it just won’t help promote good self-esteem. It does some very bad damage to the kids and they need to hear positive and good things about themselves. The same does apply to grown ups, too and just some kind words and a compliment can make a difference! Take care Connie and I appreciate your kind words and feedback! 🙂

  5. Inspiring post Gabby! “Just spread some positives vibes, they are catching…Trust me, they really are! Spread a little here and there and everywhere”, I agree…Be kind to anyone because you’ll never know if that person is having a hard time and if you are kind, somehow you will uplift her/him.

    • Thank you so much, I am so happy you liked this post! 🙂 I love to be inspiring and we really can make a difference, I just know it. It’s a good thought being kind to anyone because it can be so uplifting for someone who’s having a hard time. So glad you are with Autumn and me and some of the others to help boost self-esteem. 🙂
