Tackling Your Inner Opinion Of Yourself

Many of us will reach a point in our lives where we feel fractured with an opinion that we have generated about ourselves. It might be because you have a native mindset right now, maybe struggling with depression or anxiety. Or it could be outside influences such as a bad relationship that has helped from the opinion, or surrounding yourself with people that are bringing you down instead of raising you up. No matter how it has happened, we can all be in this position at some point in our lives. It isn’t as easy as mind over matter, and so sometimes taking actionable steps can make a big difference. With that in mind, here are some of the things you can do tackle your inner opinion of yourself.

Ask for evidence

One of the first things that you can do is ask for evidence. It may sound a little strange, but this can really work to you advantage. You may think something flippantly, for example “I am not a good wife” or “I am a rubbish mum” but then ask yourself in your mind what evidence there is to support that. Are your kids clothed, fed and happy? Yes! Is your husband smiling when he gets home or you see each other at the end of the day? Likely. Has he said anything to make you think that way? Possibly not. Once you start to question yourself wanting fact, you begin to see that there isn’t any truth to the thoughts.

Take actionable steps

Sometimes taking actionable steps can be a great way to help you feel better about yourself and they can often be very simple. It might be doing something for charity, such as taking it upon yourself to sponsor an orphan child, give to Cancer Research or set up an affordable direct debit. It could be that you want to take a little more action and physically raise some funds, be that running an event or doing something specific. Often actionable steps can also be taking better care of yourself, so exercising, taking time out for you and just indulging in a little self care. Even getting out in the fresh air can help change your opinion.

Meditation and mindset

Some people think that your mindset isn’t that important, but actually it controls a lot of how you think and act. A negative mindset will automatically give you negative thoughts, and negative actions. So working on your mindset to focus on positivity, gratitude and how you feel, such as questioning your thoughts as mentioned earlier can be a big step in the right direction. Meditation can be a great way to clear your mind if you find it is getting a little cluttered.

Figure out the main causes

Finally, it might be time to start thinking about the main causes and what it is that is causing you to feel this way. Sometimes it is a traumatic event or something you have gone through, other times it can be things like work or relationships. Take the time out to figure out what your triggers are that cause you to feel down about yourself. You can then take the right steps to feeling better and potentially feeling more at ease.

Let’s hope these tips help you to tackle your inner opinion of yourself.
