How you Communicate and your Self-Esteem
Who you think you are and your evaluation of your own worth are impacted by communication.
Who are you?
Think about defining who you are and all the things that impact the characteristics that describe you. Think about your social roles, moods, feelings, physical condition, appearance, talents, intellect, and career.
We all identify ourselves in many different ways, and this impacts our self-concept and self-esteem.
Take some time to fill out the Who am I questionnaire. The overall objective is to enhance your understanding of yourself and any interpersonal relationships that you have that contribute to positives and negatives in your self-concept.
This activity makes a way for you to understand what is around you and the influence that it has on you.
Self-concept, self-esteem, and Communication
How you feel about yourself is a key element of who you think you are. What we think and ultimately feel about ourselves contributes to how we communicate. Self-talk and the messages we communicate adds to our self-concept and self-esteem.
Often low self-esteem surfaces when the person constantly puts others down. They believe that is the only way to feel better. Their low self-esteem signals hostility and they manifest it through communication.
High self-esteem is seen often as irritating because people believe they have exaggerated self-worth. Research shows those people are perceived as being condescending by people of low self-esteem. Those people appear to be know-it-alls.
Find a happy balance that encourages active positive communication and positive thoughts. This aids growth in your self-concept and is mandatory to increase your self-esteem and self-worth.
Create a positive cycle of thoughts and words to yourself and others and eliminate the negatives.
We self-impose distortions on ourselves. Read my blog entitled “I AM”
Change is good and possible.
Embrace a positive self-image, self-talk and improve your self-concept.
Know Your Mountain!
I truly believe in the concept that you need to know your mountain. Honestly, I need to feel those people around me and acknowledge how they contribute to me being me. I, in turn, work hard to be there for others.
