Try this exercise. Take every letter of the alphabet and find a positive quality you have that starts with it. I did that once and found it helpful. You can also write down some affirmations and tape them on the bathroom mirror.

many people think that change is a huge, one-time deal. it's not. it's little by little, bit by bit, adding up. and remember, the mind magnifies what it's focused upon; so try to turn away from those things you don't want to feel and do and hold the good thought~!

here's a little recipe for change that i was given, and it's worked for me:

1) DECIDE to change;
2) Decide WHAT to change;
3) CHANGE as much as you can every chance you get;
4) PRAISE yourself for every bit of change you make~!! (MOST important~!)
Great advice!

Remember hat you are not living life to impress anyone.Just be yourself.There is someone somewhere who is having the worst kind of low self esteem.You are suffering from inferiority complex and this is curable.You need to control your thoughts.Be positive,do the things you love most.It could be your favorite hobby....avoid friends who make you feel worthless...be happy.
Great advice!
