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.

 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.

Hard confession. I wish I can omit that last paragraph. But no, I want to suck and I want to do something imperfectly.
