Self-Esteem Tips: Dealing with Body Image Issues

Self-Confidence is the degree to which you trust yourself and your ability to deal with challenges, solve problems, achieve goals and engage successfully. Self-confidence and self-esteem are often used interchangeably, as if they mean the same thing when in fact, they do not. They are very different. Self-confidence is outward-facing and often easier to build than self-esteem. It is possible to be confident in your abilities and have low self-esteem.
Whether or not you have self-confidence issues, check out the videos below to learn and understand more about it and how to tackle it.

Self-Compassion is being kind, warm and understanding to yourself when you fail, suffer or feel inadequate rather than ignoring your pain or bombarding yourself with self-criticism. It’s the ability to turn understanding, acceptance and love inward. Treat yourself the same way you’d treat your best friend if they felt bad about something, with love and understanding.
