When a woman experiences an abusive relationship for a long time, her confidence can be completely shattered and this can make it very hard for her to feel like she can trust anyone again because she is not even able to rebuild her self-confidence. In this article Life Coach and author Robert Moment is going to tell you 10 important tips that will allow you to build your self-esteem right back into optimal shape.
This might seem like a step that might not be too important but it’s extremely important for a woman to regain confidence of herself. If you start practicing a sport or join a gym, you will not only be getting in shape but you will also be socializing with others.
9- Eat healthy
Believe it or not this is also essential because your self-esteem will never get better if you keep eating junk food and packing on more weight. You should also be aware of the fact that eating healthy also has a huge impact in the way you feel through the day. Your mood and your appearance will both improve.
8- Pick up a hobby
You could do anything you want and be able to make the most out of it, but try to look for an activity that you can do at least a few times a week. It could be sculpting, painting, singing lessons, whatever you want as long as you are able to have fun and feel happy doing it.
7- Open up to your family and friends
Do not shut yourself from communicating how you fell to those you love. Always try your best to let everyone know that you are not feeling well and you will see that they will be more tolerant and cooperative when you need it the most.
6- Allow yourself to feel sad
If you don’t allow yourself to feel sad you will never be able to overcome the self-esteem issues. Do not hide from the feelings that you can experience during the first stages of recovery. Let all of it out and this will allow you to feel much better.
5- Spend time alone
Analyze how you are feeling and spend some time alone with your thoughts. Do not feel afraid of the things you will experience during the time you spend alone. Embrace it all and learn to move on.
4-Cut all contact with that person
The person that hurt you emotionally or physically should no longer be part of your life. You need to cut all contact and if you have children in common you should keep things as civil as possible.
3- Accept your flaws but change the things that have hurt you
We all have flaws but we can learn to change those things that cause pain in our lives. This is very important and it will allow you to grow much more.
If you have the opportunity to do it, you should also travel and this is going to make it a lot easier for you to grow as a person. Traveling can be a huge confidence booster too.
1-Avoid conflictive people
At this point you should be able to recognize people who are not worth your time and people who are problematic too. Avoid them as much as possible. If you continue to be friends with conflictive people you will suffer for the rest of your life.
Recovering your self-esteem can be a long process, but as long as you take things slow and follow those tips you will recover successfully from all of the abuse you suffered in the past.
