Many people suffer serious blows to their self-esteem at the holidays. Dealing with difficult or abusive family members, needing, but not getting extra support and romance form a partner, not fitting back into those favorite pants come January all have the possibility of bringing down even the strongest of self-confidence. People tend to be both more sensitive and face more unusual challenges to their self image during the holidays and the resulting wounds can affect every other part of an otherwise joyous season, not to mention the new year to come.
It is important to recognize what hurts you at the holidays, what has negatively affected your self-confidence, and how long-lasting its effects may be on into the new year. Once you recognize and accept the parts or people who are the most difficult for you to deal with, you can take a stronger approach to combating those effects.
You deserve to feel good about yourself no matter what the holidays throw at you. You deserve to feel good not only about what you do during this season of celebration, but after it winds down as well. Your loved ones deserve to experience the self-confidence you have within you. And most importantly, you CAN boost your self-esteem and you can start right now.
