  1. Personally, praying can help. Although, I think dressing up and trying to prove yourself to others is not the way to go. I struggle with self image, and I don’t even have a good answer to this question… 😂🤷‍♀️

      1. To be completely honest I was in my second one and feeling great when I commented on your post. Hence the lighthearted comment😆😆

  2. Personally, I think we know we’ve reached a state of full self-synthesis when we feel there’s nothing we can do to feel better about ourselves, because we already know we’re no better or worse than any beautiful, unique blade of grass.

    1. Yes, that’s right! But we need to work hard to get to that level of self-fulfillment because even though it’s real, we often refuse to see it due to low self-esteem, low self-confidence, the fear of other people’s opinions and so on.

  3. Praying to God and Our Savior Jesus Christ is the place to start finding happiness within ourselves. Being honest with them will bring the changes you desire.

  4. In all honesty Im not sure there is anything I can do. I feel pretty broken, destroyed, crumbling to pieces and without hope.

    I pray and beg for mercy but… There is none. I have let everyone down. I wish God would take me. Then I wouldn’t be a burden.. Maybe my family wouldn’t be starving right now.

      1. It’s a rather long story. This past June, I got caught up in a situation where I felt compelled act in defense of my wife and three year old son. I was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. My family already below the mean poverty line in the United States, could not afford an attorney. As such I have been dealing with a public defender who is at best not qualified. I can not in good conscience agree to a plea that would not only take me away from my wife and children for four months, and also take away the piddly 600 dollars I bring in a month. Thus it is going to trial. As it stands this moment my family will suffer the next 7 days with little to no food. (There are no funds) I genuinely feel bereft and as if I have lost all favor with God. Thus my answer.

  5. At the end of the day, find things to be grateful for. And I like to “congratulate” myself when I “accomplish” something like I don’t like to exercise so when I do I cheer myself up, when I study it is the same. I try to find things to make myself proud of!

      1. My true strength is in the heart, not in the mind.
        I used to be very competitive, but now I care most about the connection with the others. If I can make a difference in someone’s life only with a hug, a good word or with a nice gesture, is enough for me.

        I feel best about myself when I am not in a competition of any kind.

  6. Cold showers, A good espresso made with an aero press, meditation.. stretching.. body weight squats.. 5 or 10k jog .. u pick.. we all have and can make choices 😎
