If You Don't Feel Good Enough, You Need To Remember These 5 Things

The truth of the matter is that we experience a fair amount of both really good days and extremely bad days simultaneously. Sometimes it can seem like one is happening more than the other and can either put us in a really good mood or make us hate everything entirely.

It is important that we remind ourselves that things are not so bad when we are feeling our lowest of lows.

Despair is a very horrible feeling to experience. Here are some reminders that you should remember when you are feeling your lowest in your self-esteem.

1. Keep Moving Forward

It is important that you do not dwell on the past for too long. You can send yourself in a spiral of despair if you are constantly thinking about the "what if's" in your life. Remind yourself that it is okay to move forward with your life, forgive the past for all of it's previous mistakes, and realize that there is nothing more that you can do about it. Move on with your life and focus on the present moment.

2. There Is Nothing "Wrong" With You

Thinking that there is something "wrong" with you, is a horrible way to view yourself as well as the current situation. Everyone makes mistakes, you are only human when it comes to basic instincts. You did what you thought was right and have learned through trial and error what is right from wrong. It is an experience that we all must learn from at some point in our lives.

3. Positive Thinking Can Do Your Brain Wonders

Just by switching your overall thinking into a positive "mode", your brain will begin to see the bright side in everything that happens in your life. It's important to remind ourselves that we are not limited to just the negative thoughts in our heads. Even though the pain may still hurt, the healing process is going to require that you learn how to cope with adversity by looking at things with a much more positive view.

4. Be The Change You Desire Most

There are times where we must recognize that we are the only person who can truly make ourselves happy. No one knows you quite like yourself does. It's important to remind ourselves that even though we wish for some kind of drastic change in our lives to make ourselves happy, we have to become that change that we so desire to happen. This is easier said than done, however, the more hard work you put into yourself and your happiness, the more likely you will claim it as your own.

5. Don't Beat Yourself Up

It's important to remind ourselves that this isn't the end of the world. Sure, it may seem like everything is collapsing around you right now, but this is an opportunity for you to rebuild some of those things brought down. You can recreate yourself from the wreckage and come back even stronger because of it. This moment in your life does not define who you are today and you should never feel bound to those unfortunate experiences. Be the world you so desperately want to live in.

Hopefully this has boosted your mood and self-esteem into doing better things for yourself. For the sake of your physical and mental health.
