The way to build true self-esteem lies in facing challenges and overcoming them. Self-esteem is simply believing yourself to be a competent human being who can handle the hard stuff as well as the easy stuff. People can tell a child how wondrous and perfect s/he is forever, and it won't build one ounce of self-esteem. The only way to feel truly self-confident and assured is to face down challenges and rise up to meet them.
You build self esteem by learning to love YOURSELF. Do nice things for yourself. Get a manicure, a pedicure, heck go get your hair done. Buy a cute outfit that you love, that makes you look good. Do nice things for other people. Look in the mirror, and instead of pointing out your flaws, tell yourself all the things you love about yourself. Smile, you ARE worth it! <3
