Self-Esteem Habits in Your Family

 By Liv Miyagawa


To keep your self-esteem high you need good self-esteem habits. Just taking a self-esteem course to raise your self-esteem once doesn't keep your self-esteem high for the rest of your life. By creating good self-esteem habits in your family you will not only help yourself to maintain a high self-esteem, but you will help your husband/wife and your children to raise their self-esteem too. This will maximize their performance and well-being now and build a good base for maintaining high self-esteem in the future.
Here are three self-esteem habits that you can introduce to your family.
1. Give compliments. When you give your family members compliments you will help them to raise their self-esteem. Try to not just give them compliments when they have done something good, but also compliment them on their personalities. For example, you can tell them that they are kind, helpful, happy, social, punctual, fun to be with etc.
2. Talk about your own positive qualities. When you talk openly about what is good about yourself you show your family that it is ok to think positively about yourself. It is important that everybody learns that loving yourself is something positive.
3. Tell your family members how you want them to treat you. Tell them what you want them to do in order to show that they care about you and love you, and tell them how you do not want to be treated. When you do this you set a good standard of showing yourself respect by expecting people to fulfill your needs of being loved and cared about. You are also a good role model in terms of not accepting bad behaviour. Your children will grow up as strong individuals who do not accept being bullied or stepped over by others. They will take responsibility for their own happiness.
Although I do not want to put it on the list, the most important self-esteem habit that you can have in your family is to show each other love every day. You do this by listening carefully to every family member and showing that you care and respect them. This is the most important self-esteem habit.
