What is Self-Image and How to (Really!) Improve it

What is Self-image

Sam suffers from a poor self-image.

He believes that no one likes him and no one will ever like him. He believes that he’s ugly.

And on top of it all, he doesn’t believe that one day he can reach his dreams. Like, he doesn’t deserve success.

Sam’s ideal is extreme. He believes that he should be liked by a specific type of people; the people who rejected him when he was young. You know, the cool kids!

He should be fit and athletic. Also, he should look so good that when he passes around, people notice him and drop their jaw in the sight of his gorgeous face.

Are You Living In A Circus?

The circus is fun.

Well, I don’t know much about circuses and this article isn’t about judging the circus and its people.

However, there’s an imaginary circus that we sometimes create and live inside of it.

We create it inside of our minds, of course. And we act as if we’re living in it, and as a result our general behavior is guided by the fact that we’re living in that circus.

I Get Defensive When People Judge Me

I was at the gym.

Hesitantly, I tried to perform a shoulder workout that I’ve seen on YouTube.

Because I didn’t have the best physique, and because the exercise was a bit weird, and because I was nervous, I grabbed some people’s attention.

And I was doing it wrong. The form was shitty and the weights were too heavy.

 I’m a perfectionist. And, no, that’s not a good thing.

I used to think that being a perfectionist is linked to being a genius and doing an excellent work.

But it’s not.

It’s linked to fear, shame, and seeking approval.

I would do anything to avoid being seen as imperfect. Not because I want to do an excellent job; because I’m afraid people wouldn’t like the imperfect version of me.
