It's already extremely trying to get your self-esteem boosted during the normal times, but what do you do when you are going through the hard times? How can you make yourself feel better in your self-esteem?

When life happens, such as the loss of jobs, loss of relationships, or illness, you can experience a loss of self-esteem. The first thing that we do, is to blame ourselves. We feel that if we were simply "good enough", this wouldn't have happened to us. We might get to a point of clarity to realize that this isn't true, but we still need a way to feel better!

So, here are some ways that you can boost your self-esteem during the hard times:

1. Focus on the good, and the positive. Yes, life will hand you some hard blows. But believe it or not, there can be good that comes from the bad. Focus on those things.

- Think about your family's love, that you have a home, or what ever else is good or special in your life.

- You will start to feel better, and you will see that you had a big part in making the good come to pass.

- You need to realize that you are needed in the lives of others, and you are loved. Remember, the bad times do pass.

2. Take time to nurture yourself. You are going to be stressed out during the bad times. This isn't going to help your deflated self-esteem. But now more than ever, you need to take care of yourself

- Fit in some relaxation time to take care of yourself. You need to hit the reset button for your mind. Do the things that you like to do. Do it with family, friends, or plan a retreat for yourself.

- Pamper yourself. This is the time to read that book, soak in the tub; do the things that make you happy, and that make you feel nurtured.

3. Know that things will get better. If you believe that things are hopeless, then they will be. But if you believe that there is light at the end of the tunnel, you can create it for yourself.

- When you know that things will get better, is that you will start to feel the confidence again. You will feel that you are on the right track in your recovery.

Life sometimes hands us a bad lot in life. But during these times, you have to make it your place to take your feelings away from the relationship, and you need to focus on positivity. You will feel stronger in your self-esteem, and you will start to feel light, and strength from within. Boosting Your Self-Esteem During The Hard Times
