In the past, I have allowed myself to be disregarded, disrespected and just generally treated poorly by friends, family members and boyfriends. I’m still learning how to feel good about myself and recognize the difference between fair and unfair treatment. But, I’ve also learned that I’m not the only one who struggles with self-confidence.
So, these days, I surround myself with people who lift me up. I make sure I am spending my time with people who remind me of the value I bring to the world. And, I strive to be that kind of person for my family and friends.
When you surround yourself with people who make you feel good, people who can make you laugh, everything becomes easier.
How Often Do You Laugh Each Day?
What I have found is that lots of laughter in life is a sign of how well things are going, and can ease my struggles with self-confidence.
It may seem simple, but pay attention one day to how often you laugh. I’m talking real, belly laughs that make just make your soul feel good.
If you aren’t having many days full of that kind of laughter and joy, dig a little deeper.
Laugh With Your Friends
I have friends who can laugh with me when I do or say something silly. If I’m embarrassed about it, you won’t find my best friends laughing at me.
Laugh With Your Spouse
I have a wonderful husband who never gets tired of my company. We can spend days together at a time without leaving each other’s sides and by the time we need to part ways for work or other obligations, we’re still laughing together and telling jokes.
Gain Support From Your Family
Even when they don’t understand, my family supports me wholly in everything I do and everything I am.
Facing Struggles with Self-Confidence Through Love and Laughter is the First Step to Healthy Living
Living joyously and surrounded by love is the best way for me to remember that I am lovable. Remembering that I am lovable helps me to remember to take care of my whole self.
The journey to health needs to start from the inside. You need to heal your soul and address your struggles with self-confidence before you can begin to heal your body.
