What's Your Self Esteem Like?

I'm fat, I'm ugly, I can't do anything right, why don't people like me? I wish I were skinnier! Do any of these statements sound familiar to you? Are you used to insulting yourself? Well I'm here to tell you that you are not the only teen or even adult who struggles with your self esteem. If you're a teen, you are going through so many changes in your life such as growing, moving place to place, school, or maybe your parents are getting divorced or have gotten a divorce. Teens all over America and other countries struggle with their looks, personality, or life.

If you want to build your self esteem, try this. Go into a bathroom or your room and look at your self in the mirror. Then, say these 4 things... Make a joke if you want :)

  • (Your name here), you look fantastic and God made you just like He wanted you to look like
  • I'm a beautiful/handsome guy/girl
  • Dang, I'm lookin' pretty good today ;)
  • Oh, I am so awesome!
Comment if you tried this! 

Girls, do you take a lot of pictures and post them on Facebook, Tumblr, MySpace, and Twitter? Do you try to have or get a boyfriend like "everyone else?" These things aren't quite normal I'm sorry to say! Yes, yes, taking pictures is really fun, but some things have their limits. Girls tend to try to be all that or at least act like they are, and I'm here to tell you that guys aren't impressed with it. I've been there and done that. If you want a boyfriend try this. 

When you wake up in the morning for school, instead of dumping a load of makeup on, only put a little let him see the real you. Then, when you get to school, hang with your friends and don't try to hang out with his (guys need their "guy time".)The most important thing to do is to let him come to you. If he's interested in you he will go for you. Now, back to the taking pictures part. Most girls do this because they're insecure, don't worry a lot of people are even adults! Try to just take ten pictures of yourself, then choose three of the best out of the ten you took. Also, when you take your pictures don't try to be all "sexy" or desperate looking. Most guys hate that as well.

Guys, do you try to show off to get girls? Do you obsess over sports or video games? Don't worry, lots of guys are like you! here are some tips: 

If you want a girlfriend, always act interested in them. For example when she says "I had the worst day!" don't say "Oh, I'm sorry!" you always want to ask her what happened so she can get it out. 

When it comes to video games and sports, don't sit and play video games all day, girls want a guy who is a hard worker and can earn a living one day. Sorry guys, you can't really earn a good living by playing games. Sports on the other hand are a great exercise and are good for you, but you can't do that 24/7 either always try to be interested in your surroundings and other people around you.
