Fear of public speaking, fear of
asserting yourself, social anxiety - signs of low self esteem
manifest themselves in many ways. There are plenty of courses, worksheets, and other tools, that can help you feel better about yourself.
Self Esteem Worksheets can serve as an excellent resource to get you started on the path to better self esteem. Like self esteem assessment tests, worksheets are also self help tools - whose objective is to identify areas of low self esteem.
Questions Found in Self Esteem Worksheets
While the actual questions found in self esteem assessments and worksheets vary across the board, they usually fall into TWO typical categories:
1. know yourself
What do you think about your
appearance? Are you happy about the way you look? Do you think you have
less attractive features than others, in general? Or more?
do you think are your physical or intellectual skills, or your positive
personality traits? What about your weaknesses - skills or personality
traits that you think you lack, that may be needed for more successful,
How about your career, or your other
achievements? Are you happy about where you are in your career and
life, right now? Are you proud of your current position, or
Or do you feel you haven't reached up to
your potential yet? If so, why do you think so? Do you generally feel
you are not good enough to do certain things? Are you afraid to try new
stuff because you think you might just bungle it all up?
A relationship could also mean any other generic relationship, in which another person is involved - like your work relationship with your colleagues.
Is there any dissatisfaction arising from your association in any of your relationships? If so, why do you think?
Is it because you find it difficult to assert yourself in your relationship, or in social situations?
Is it a common occurrence that you are talked into doing things you don't want to do?
Do you find yourself frequently apologizing for your actions, in any of your interactions with your partner, or others?
Answering the above questions to the best
of our ability, in quiet surroundings that ensure reflection and
maximum concentration, can give us a good picture of how we see
That knowledge and insight can then help us point to areas that might need some improvement.
Maintaining Lists of Our Positives
Self Esteem worksheets can further focus on remedying certain low self esteem situations, with few more suggestions along the following lines:
Listing our accomplishments - even not so big ones - like passing high school.
Listing compliments and positive feedback that we receive from others.
our skills - even relatively overlooked ones - like driving a car. If
you can't find many, asking others is a good idea, as you may be
surprised at all the good things they may say about you.
your positive personality traits - even little ones - like being extra
patient with elderly who cross the street. Or listing the positive
adjectives that you or others use to describe you.
And putting a positive spin to the negative things
you say about yourself, or hear others say about you - and rewriting
them in a positive way. Like saying "I tend to details very well",
instead of saying "I am picky".
Such continued positive
feedback is essential for self esteem building, so it is a good idea to
keep such lists close by; this lets us quickly look at them to bring up
our morale, during the times we feel a bit low about ourselves.
There is a link to some sample worksheets in the tools and resources section below. But over time, it is also a good idea to get into the
habit of developing your own self esteem worksheets, tailored to your
specific needs, as that can increase their effectiveness.
Once such worksheets help you drill down your exact self esteem issues, it becomes easier to address them.
