I have a strange problem (or so I think). Sometimes, I have
a positive attitude about myself and feel great. Other times, it’s the exact
opposite – I feel bad about myself and my attitude is so negative.
Sounds human to me. Everyone’s confidence goes up and down, and everyone feels
insecure at times. To strengthen your self-esteem, do things that make you
proud. Deepen friendships, build skills, volunteer, be helpful, play sports,
whatever you love to do. In the fall, get the best grades you can. And practice
listening to the little voice that says, “Way to go!” rather than the one that
says “That was lame.”
