Self-reflection in his practice as a case manager and also clinical counsellor within a Family Service Centre. As I grow older for example, I find that gratitude is a core practice that I would like to do more consistenty. If you've never had the opportunity to visit a Kindergarten classroom, you should find time to do so.
Self-compassion is the extension of kindness, care, warmth, and understanding (instead of beratement and criticism) toward oneself when faced with shortcomings, inadequacies, or failures. Self-compassion is the care and nurturing we offer ourselves when we make mistakes, embarrass ourselves, or come short of a goal we were hoping to achieve. Having self-compassion means to honor and accept your own humanness and accept that in life, you will encounter a number of unfortunate circumstances, sometimes where you’re the one at fault.  Self-compassion is having grace for oneself. Now, consider for a moment: how you respond to yourself when you’ve messed up or haven’t done something quite right?
One way to practice is by taking five minutes at the end of the day and writing about the worst thing that happened to you during the day.  Pretend like you’re writing about it from the stance of someone who cares about you.
If you’ve been around children’s sports in the last ten or fifteen years, you might have noticed a strange trend, there is no score-keeping. So why have we shielded our children from experiencing losing the game or getting a “C” in math?  Self-esteem. While one could argue a lot of reasons for an increase in the use of anti-depressants, I believe our culture has defined self-esteem and the basis for it incorrectly. If you listen to our culture, it tells you that how you feel about yourself is the most important part of self-esteem, but our feelings will carry our mind and attitudes from highs to lows and back again, day in and day out.
Do you see how extremes of self-esteem lead to a selfish heart and ultimately a “me” focused attitude?
In the next two lessons, I will focus on this last point a lot more, and in the last lesson, I will examine our ultimate example of someone with perfect self-esteem, Jesus Christ. About Latest Posts Erynn SprouseErynn and her husband, Jeremy serve with the Patrick Street church of Christ in Dublin, TX . The controversial Self-Portrait in the Uffizi is very similar to the Blessing Christ, but its poor state of conservation has prevented critics from attributing it objectively and definitively to Raphael. It helps children develop respect for themselves, which in turn leads to being respected by others. Children and young people with low self-esteem are more at risk of developing anxiety, depression, self-harming and other mental health problems as they grow up, and will often find the ups and downs of life in general harder to get through.  Moreover, it can be extremely difficult for a teenager with low self-esteem to cope with pressure from peers, school or society. Help your child discover and develop their talents through clubs, groups and activities – your child may gain new skills to be proud of.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a process that helps you to identify how the way you think interacts with how you feel, and what you do as a result. CBT focuses on thoughts, beliefs and opinions about oneself (which are likely to be self-critical, self-blaming and self-doubting), and also provides a practical approach for changing them by changing behaviour. Many children with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), have self-esteem vulnerabilities. Low self-esteem ALWAYS forms in childhood when the individual is developing an initial view of how he or she, as a person, fits into the world. Signs of low self-esteem: social withdrawal, sensitivity to criticism, hostility, excessive pre-occupation with personal problems, physical symptoms like head aches, fatigue and insomnia (sleep disorders). 3. Some people may require talking to a counselor or an expert, especially those who went through a more challenging past.
A person should not allow the low self-esteem to hinder him or her from realizing the true potentials. If you think you are suffering from a low self-esteem, you can chat anonymously to a facilitator on the MobieG LIVE CHAT. What he said that day struck a chord with me as it reminded me of the value of self-reflection especially within the context of everyday life. This is because increasingly I feel that how we feel about everything in our lives also stems from how we have been conditioned to perceive them.
The best that I can say about self-reflection is that its akin to the feedback that is required for any system to excel. Any open system, and we are all open systems unless you tell me that you live in an isolated cave and do not interact with any other human being, requires an accurate feedback mechanism to relay to it crucial information so that the system can adapt and thrive. But how do you as an individual system made up of yourself and all your fears, expectations, hopes, memories etc obtain your own version of valuable feedback system? Here I will share my thoughts on education in an effort to improve schools by helping Educators to reflect upon their current practices and beliefs.


Compared to those who try to use guilt, shame, or fear as motivators to complete a project or goal, the ones who practice self-compassion are the ones who spend less time dragging their feet when it comes time to perform a task.
Those who are accepting and caring towards themselves after a perceived or real failure will be much more likely to “get back on the horse” and keep going. Contrary to what some might assume, self-compassion does not relieve someone of their ownership of a problem; rather, self-compassion actually serves to assist someone in being able to make a more realistic assessment of the role they played in problem process.
Those who are more compassionate with themselves will not crumble if they receive feedback from others. Being self-compassionate is not an innate quality, and it’s often learned in our family of origin. In one study, participants who did this every day for one week reported experiencing a greater sense of happiness toward their lives. Please enjoy and carefully consider this first lesson in our new series on Biblical self-esteem. We must train our thoughts to anchor our self-esteem so that it is not tossed about by feelings. There are two extremes when it comes to self-esteem, those with too much and those with too little. She doesn’t feel like she should have to do anything for the church unless she gets the starring role and lots of recognition.
I pray that you might find these lessons encouraging and a radically different message than what you hear in our world. We are dealing with this a lot with our teenage girls at church right now and I needed this!
It is important because it helps the individual feel proud of who they are, and what they do. Sometimes children develop low self-esteem after a divorce, bereavement or being bullied or abused.
If you make a mistake, admit it and say sorry, to show them that getting it wrong is not the end of the world and happens to everyone.
Give criticism calmly, in a constructive way – focusing on the behaviour you want to change instead of criticising the person.
If you are worried that your child’s low self-esteem is affecting their day to day life, relationships or ability to learn and develop, it is worth seeking professional help. It is an ideal approach to tackling low self-esteem, as it provides a framework for understanding; 1. These are often due to the consequences of their behaviour, and also as adolescents, their realization of the mismatch between actual achievement and potential. This is to reassure the self of the many capabilities and potentials that may be developed. Hugging may be a very simple act, but this could very well give warmth to a dampened spirit. Specifically with the ever increasing pace of life, we all need to consciously find the time to sit down and reflect on our day, our week, our relationships, our current stage in life, our life philosophy and what we hope to achieve. Well you can do so by harnessing the power of self-reflection where you practice contemplation, wearing other person’s perspectives, do thought experiments etc.
The opinions expressed here represent my own and may or may not represent those of my current employer. Take for example, a homeless man on the street; when encountering him, you may notice his pain and wonder if under different circumstances your life could have turned out the same way. This is because those who practice self-compassion know they have inherent value and abilities to recover— even if the feedback is not positive. When you’re tempted to be self-critical or judgmental, try to speak to yourself as someone who cares about you would; consider what they might say to encourage you. Depending on our childhood circumstances, this may or may not have been a skill that we learned from our parents. God does not expect us to feel good about ourselves; He expects us to feel right about ourselves. The world tells you self-esteem is found in externals, looks, children, intelligence, husband, marriage, home, job, etc.  But God tells us that our self-esteem is found in the cross and what it represents. It seems that I quickly become frustrated with my family and myself, and that leads me to questioning is there a problem with me or my family. The soft light which pervades the portrait certainly recalls Leonardo, but the restless and problematic elements which Leonardo's complex figurative research present are absent. Self-reflection can also be a moment we accord to ourselves to honour, accept and yes console ourselves even.


So I believe that by practicing a gratitude mindset, we will start to shift our conditioned perspective towards positivity. Perhaps in another blog post we will explore further what is the exact process of self-reflection or at least the process that I employ.

Most of the time feeling right about ourselves should lead us to positive thoughts, but sometimes feeling right about ourselves should lead us to repentance. It requires constant dedication and attention to our moods with Biblical thoughts to counteract feelings. High class on Sunday mornings and leads the Children’s Bible Hour program on Sunday nights. I think a lot of poor choices that we make as women come back to believing Satan’s lies about who we are and what we should be. Gratitude alone does wonders for the soul as it allows the mind to relieve itself off some burdensome thingking when achieved.
You are a system made up of the interaction between your awareness, your relationship with your memories, emotions, expectation, conditioned perspectives, fears, etc. For now, it is good to note the invaluableness of self-reflection and start your own self-reflection practice in the best way only you know works for you.
Compassion for her and her situation leads you to offer a listening ear, a comforting hug, or maybe some kind words of encouragement. Once you actually spend a day paying attention to the things you say to yourself in your mind, you might be shocked at how much your feelings hurl insults at your self-worth. You might find it odd to read a verse talking about humility of mind when self-esteem is the topic, but the two are completely intertwined. But we should find ourselves becoming more and more like Louise and less and less like Mary and Sandy. She is a full-time mom who homeschools their three children: Grace (8), Sophia (4), and Levi (2). On the contrary, it communicates a serene observation of reality through a pictorial rendering rich in synthetic capacity. Sometimes, self-reflection can also partly be used to practice gratitude or remind ourselves of other practices that we want to set aside for daily practice. Within each of us sometimes resides a vast complexity that mirrors the complexity of our external relationships. We go to therapy or take medications if we don’t (I am not talking about clinical depression!). Something described as “deceitful” and “desperately sick” in God’s word is not something we want to heed in our lives!
Everything should be focused on them, their abilities, their lives, etc.  The second group has low self-esteem. Thanks so much for writing this series and helping us get back on track with a Christ-centered esteem. You would think in the richest, most free country in the world, we would have more self-esteem than anyone else in history. The cross will tell you that you are undeserving and a sinner, that you still have things to work on that God wants to perfect in you. My husband is always amazed by our daughters’ ability to be extremely upset and sobbing one minute, then laughing and smiling the next! If only they had been prettier, a better mother, a better wife, a better whatever, then xyz wouldn’t have happened. You are a Christian woman made to serve a God who wants you to realize that you are fabulous, wonderful, and purchased at a great price so that He can make you into what He wants you to be. She doesn’t necessarily like cleaning, but she does like helping others and the Lord’s kingdom. She knows that she is defined by more than the job she is doing tonight, so she goes about cheerfully doing what needs to be done even if no one thanks her or even notices.
