ThePeopleAlchemist Edit: Be your best self – #SmashYourCeiling, change starts from within -Business & Lifestyle Experimentation for #TheWomanAlchemist
Understanding the importance of Self-appreciation before Self-esteem and beyond Self-Acceptance is a crucial step in the journey toward your Best Self.
We talked about how, whilst Self-acceptance is the key and doorway to true power, Self-appreciation brings true transformation and can change your life.
But why is Self-appreciation important?
THE IMPORTANCE OF SELF-APPRECIATION
Self-appreciation can instantly change how you view yourself and overcome external situations by identifying where you are at now, with kindness and (self) support.
Self-appreciation is not self-esteem or confidence. It goes deeper.
Self-confidence is the belief we have in our abilities and talents and is externally focused, e.g. what you can do. Self-esteem is the core belief about who you are as a person and, normally, how you view yourself (at your best). Both Self-esteem and Self-confidence are very important to wellbeing and mental & physical health (Self-esteem more so).
But Self-appreciation is all about valuing yourself even at your worse and when lowest.
It is accepting who you are right here and right now – with no judgement. No matter how much or how little you have accomplished. How far or near you are from your goals. Or how other people value you or make you feel.
Self-appreciation is recognising all the goodness in you, even in your darkest moments when it is the hardest to recognise it.
Whatever happens in your life, still pat yourself in the back for showing up and doing your best. Seeing the positive not just in the situation but in yourself.
When you learn the importance of self-appreciation, you gain the best supporter that you could ever have: yourself.
