Your facebook updates can sum up how you value
yourself. In a recent study which is yet to be published in
Psychological Science, researchers found people with low self esteem
updated negative tidbits about their life and this made them less
likable among their peers.
People with high self esteem were
more positive and were liked mostly by all. In a direct conversation you
get the instant feed back of the listener when you talk negatively. But
in a social platform such as facebook everyone tends to keep their
feelings about the negative updates to themselves, the study found.
So what is self esteem? A person’s overall estimation of his or her own self worth and so how would you raise your self worth?
proper care of yourself, identify the triggers to low self esteem and
curb them down, think positive about yourself, be assertive and
cultivate hobbies. You should sleep properly, exercise, eat good diet,
practice meditation, stop comparing yourself with others, accept
compliments and surround yourself with positive people.
