The big problem with having bad self esteem is you can not just get rid of it overnight. It is something that has to be worked on, and it could even get worse. Before I let it get worse my plan is to start believing in myself no matter the outcome. Do the best I possibly can in sports and school and if it still is not enough I will see that It is
For many this acceptance is the hardest part of letting go, but without it there is no way to leave the past behind. It also helps to look at the past from a different, more positive angle. For example, instead of berating yourself for failures give yourself credit for getting through them and survived the
Opportunity brings desires and expectations in people’s life. However, never-ending opportunities or choices not only bring frustration in people’s lives but also make them saddened for prolong period. In “The Paradox of Choice” by Barry Schwartz argue that more is less, for to have more doesn’t mean it will meet people expectations. Every little thing is developing so vastly in today’s time, and people are running behind to achieve it. However, they don’t understand the fact that they are putting themselves in a pressure, where they have to make a decision.
It is possible that your plans might still fail despite doing all that is required to achieve them. You might do everything that is necessary to achieve your plans, and yet your plans might still fail dismally. And if this is the case, what might be the reason behind your failure? Your plans will fail if you do not consider life in totality. Life is more complex than it may appear.
It is unbelievable how this weakness has been growing during the years. This is a weakness I have to struggle every day, and not necessarily in school. But I do know this is something I have yet to fix, and I've been reflecting alone about it every now and then, but still come to the same conclusion as always, is too difficult to let it go that easily. There is a saying my family used to always say, ‘'there is no bigger enemy to a man than a man himself''. It is fair to say this phrase/saying goes perfectly to my lack of self-confidence situation.
I used to believe that studying and working at the same would bring me professional experiences and substantial benefits for my future and careers. On the other hand, in real situation, since I have started working, I have realized that when the tasks are loaded I could not manage the time properly not just for my work but also my study. On account of these problems, I have no time to review my lesson which will then affect my grade in a negative way. For example, I supposed to review lessons for my upcoming exam which is approaching, yet I could not concentrate well due to the distraction of a project launching on the same date as the exam. This is the worst role conflict I have ever endured with; it brings not just tiring days but also pressure, less self-esteem and sleep
Another weakness of mine is having too many ideas; it gives me a hard time to organize my work. I will always spend a lot of time organizing my thoughts as it is hard for me to cut out some of the ideas that I know is unnecessarily but I still think I could make them all fit in the big picture. However, it does not work that way and I have grown out of that idea and have been trying to improve myself for the better
I wasn’t honest; I pushed everyone down so I can be at the top. School makes you believe that having good grades is the key to a successful life and human beings, maybe they don’t want you to understand that, but everything they do when awarding and mentioning the ones with good grades is what you understand when you are little. Because when you are at the top of your class they listen to you, but if you weren’t you were just another student in the corner. It is sad, but it is the truth. My feelings and thoughts were a mess.
Anxiety is a feeling of worry and typical uneasiness of situations in life that can have an outcome related to stress. This definition of concern is one that I can easily relate to because while journaling for the past week, I realized whenever I become anxious, it leads to immediate stress. The experience that I have had with anxiety in the last seven days have veered toward my education, relationships, and self-esteem. The concern I had with school work this week was worry, regarding whether I was smart enough to be in the major I applied for, or if it is what God has planned for me. I struggle daily with whether I am fulfilling God’s purpose in my life by studying the major I am, and I worry that I will never be good enough to live up to the expectations my education demands from me.
I didn’t know who I was as a person or who I wanted to become. I represented myself in different ways every other week and was worried about what everyone else thought. As a junior I struggle with ability confidence on a regular basis. I’m told that I am good enough to accomplish my goals, but I still worry about if I can actually achieve what I want to. I am at the point now where I recognise that I am unconfident in my abilities, and I try to push myself to greater things, but there is a part of me that is still unsure if I am good enough.
