journaling to improve self-esteem

March 1, 2020

Building your self-esteem is a journey, long or short, that you deserve to go through. You deserve to feel good looking, smart, capable, and strong. This journey may be hard but it’s worth it. You are worth it.

Journaling can help you start the process of building your self-esteem. You can write about goals, dreams, current life ordeals, and so much more. Getting everything down on paper can be therapeutic and good for your sense of self. Try two or three journals to keep your thoughts straight such as one for everyday life, one for self-esteem and another for goals.

Here are some starting points to help you with your journaling.

Your Self-Esteem Journal

This journal is going to hold your innermost thoughts. A safe place for you to release all the negative thoughts and plant the seeds for your positive self-esteem. For you to go over your day to day or write your thoughts on a difficult situation. This journal should reflect who you are as a person. Draw on it, write positive quotes, color it, or decorate it with jewels and such. Make it a reflection of the positive you.

Self-Esteem Prompts

Sometimes writing about your day or how you feel or even where to start can be overwhelming. Prompts can help you focus your thoughts as you write them down and guide you through your journey. Below are some prompts that you can use and you can find more all over the internet.

  • What makes you unique (positive comments only)?
  • What words or beliefs do you or do you want to live your life by?
  • Make a list of things you want to do before next year.

These are made to help you dig deep and find the good qualities about yourself as well as give you goals and expectations to live by.
