10 Proven Ways to Improve Self Esteem

8. Not looking for others’ approval is a proven way to improve your self esteem

We often tend to think about what others think before we do something. We’re social creatures, and it’s natural for us to want to be accepted. However, this becomes a problem when we look for approval from others for everything we do. Maybe we dress ourselves a certain way, or we listen to a certain type of music, etc., just because we want to be accepted. When we do this, our own opinions and likes get lost because we’re afraid of what others will think.

What can you do: Think about what you’re doing and ask yourself, am I doing this for other people, or am I doing it for myself? If you’re not sure about the answer, you might be seeking approval. Really listen to yourself and try to step away from seeking approval.
