Many of us experience it.
Its the feeling you get when you want to ask someone out but the words just don’t want to leave your mouth. Or, maybe it involves the feeling of being taken advantage of when you don’t know how to say no. Be mindful of the underlying feelings you may be harboring. A fear of rejection could mean that you are actually feeling unlovable, or unworthy. If you find yourself struggling with these feelings, there are three things you can do today that will boost your courage and increase your sense of self-worth.
Start a gratitude journal
A gratitude journal is a collection of the things you are grateful for. It provides a healthy reminder that life isn’t all that bad. The key is to write down three things your are grateful for, at the end of each day. Each day you will write down three different things from the previous day. These can be qualities about yourself, about other people, or things happening around you.
Positive affirmations are words of encouragement and support that motivate you to move forward. For example, “I am lovable,” “I am beautiful and smart,” or “Today will be a great day.” Write down great things about yourself and post them separately in places you will notice them throughout the day. You will begin to feel more positive about yourself, and more worthy in no time.
Talking to someone about your fears can help you to rebuild your courage. In fact, just the simple act of going to see a counselor proves your bravery and boosts your self-esteem.
