Mental Health Matters

As many of you know I’m a therapist. I have a Masters Degree in Counseling and Psychology. I love sharing about my field, but most of all I am blessed and humbled to be able to serve in a field where I have an opportunity to give people the tools to make their lives better. I figured there’s no better time than now to kick off a Thursday series about mental health called, Mental Health Matters. Today I’m going to be sharing with you 5 tips on how to improve your self esteem. Instagram is great, but you only see perfectly curated feeds and you never see the raw, messy versions of people. Adversity is truly what makes or breaks a person. And, this leads me to my first tip… 1) Comparison is the thief of joy. Stop comparing your life to other people’s lives. You never know what someone has to walk through on a daily basis to become who they are. 2) Know your worth. Now this is tricky sometimes because we live in a world that defines people by their marital status, careers, wealth, fame and looks. So, even though the world may say one thing… It’s important you always remember there is value found inside of you. You were created by a God who makes no mistakes. 3) Let go of the past. Yes, you read that correctly. You can never move forward in life if you continuously playback all of the mistakes you’ve made or revisit all of the bad breaks you’ve had. Your brain can only hold on to so much information. It’s time you realize that your future is in front of you, not behind you. 4) Surround yourself with people who bring out the best in you. Let go of anyone that doesn’t bring peace in your life. If your friends don’t support you and pray for you, it’s time to get new friends. Don’t spend your time convincing people to believe in you. I’m a firm believer that your squad will eventually find you. 5) Be a supportive person. Love is a verb, friends. And, the more you willingly serve and support others, you will begin to realize that the only competion you have is the person you see in the mirror. Jealousy and hate have no place in the life of a person who has a healthy self worth. Beautiful people cultivate an attitude of gratitude and choose to see the good even when their worlds are crashing down. -Anita Ford
