What you need to know is that of all the judgments in life, none is more important than the one we have of ourselves.
So what's self-esteem? In a nutshell, it's the ability to identify negative events and do something about them because it's our response to these events that are shaped by who and what we think we are in other words 'our self-esteem' and to put it into context, having healthy self-esteem allows you to reach goals because you feel confident enough to express yourself well, you feel clear about your journey in life, your relationships are nourishing and equal and you feel more ambitious in a career or financial sense - you would also be able to emotionally, intimately, intellectually and creatively express yourself better.
When your esteem is low you're more likely to seek the familiar and undemanding which invariably keeps you stuck, you might do what others want you to do and you tend to seek unhealthy experiences such as being in toxic relationships and situations or mechanically doing things which can lead to malaise and underachieving. So what's it to be? do you want to stay stuck or does the first paragraph sound like a better option? because if you'd like to be able to cope when your sense of self has been violated and you're left feeling compromised then practicing to react differently will help you make choices that work well for you without the worry of what others think of you and feeling guilty about it.
I'm not going to pretend that it will be easy to move away from your current mindset but the aim is to essentially work from a place of self-respect because once you see that you no longer need the worry and anguish some situations bring you can go forward in all aspects of your life with a renewed sense of purpose.
About Lynn and why I used movies
I lost my self-esteem when after many years in a financially challenging relationship I was made to feel unworthy and consequently, I lost the ability to protect myself. As this needed to change, I set about building some resilience, and even though I was inspired by some people in real life, I discovered that my lack of assertiveness was mirrored by movie characters especially when it came to intimate relationships and as their outcome by the end of the movie was that of empowerment I challenged myself to act the same way until I got the result I wanted which is that I no longer feel the emptiness I once did as I've lost the urgent need for validation because I feel like myself again and I'm clearer about money.
Why work with me?
I've learned to change my approach and that's exactly what I want for you because if you're open to seeing yourself differently then this will have an effect on how others see you and this experience will set you free to make better choices and help you achieve your goals.
I'm a qualified movie therapist, mentor, and life coach who'll give you the tools you need to succeed so you overcome the barriers that you and others put in your way. I've worked with a diverse range of people by helping them use movies as a vehicle towards increasing their self-esteem through the support I received from organizations such as Wirral Mind and The School for Social Entrepreneurs where I graduated from as a fellow on the Innovators for Health program.
