Much about your self-esteem has to do with your past and being happy with where you are now. Its easy to come up with excuses for not liking yourselves, when it comes to body image or maintaining sobriety. Your first years of recovery are always the worst, you’ll go through a lot of changes, gain weight, that’s a normal process healing. When you finally achieve youre ideal mentally and physically again you’ll be proud of yourself, just give yourself time to heal. Its not by likes or rejections you should feel good about yourself, not go by who likes you, but go by how you feel about yourself, no one knows you better than yourself, you cannot judge a book by its cover, assume that just because someone does not look well or is overweight that that means that they are unhappy with themselves, sometimes people are harmed in the process of loving others, and by those rejections or failures in life experience hardship either by use of drugs or alcohol to feel better about themselves. To better oneself, without competing with others, means to be the best version of yourself, absent minded others, what others think of you, or whether they are judging you now as well or being bad on purpose and that’s why you look bad, is because of your own faults in life, there is lack of empathy for people who are not strong or who do not appear well, don’t be so judgmental, acceptance of self is key to build a greater acceptance of others, who not by appearances do well in life, but by their hard work and effort put toward their own self-esteems and the esteems of others, achieve well.
