Good relationships don't just happen. You have to put forth the work and effort to build and maintain a great relationship. Let me share with you what I mean...
Self esteem is affected by physical ill health, negative life events such as losing your job or getting divorced, deficient or frustrating relationships, and a general sense of lack of control. This sense of lack of control is often particularly marked in people who are the victims of emotional, physical, or sexual abuse, or of discrimination on the grounds of religion, culture, race, sex, or sexual orientation.
Sometimes poor self-esteem can be deeply rooted and have its origins in traumatic childhood experiences such as prolonged separation from parent figures, neglect, or emotional, physical, or sexual abuse.
People with long-term low self-esteem generally see the world as a hostile place and themselves as its victim. As a result, they feel reluctant to express and assert themselves, miss out on experiences and opportunities, and feel helpless about changing things. All this merely lowers their self-esteem even further, and they end up getting caught in a downward spiral.
Thankfully, there are a number of simple things that women can do to boost self-esteem and, hopefully, break out of this vicious circle. You may already be doing some of these things, and you certainly don't need to do them all. Just do those that you feel most comfortable with.
We live in a world where we often feel out of control.
We stress about news stories that we can’t change, relationships we can’t salvage and other more personal issues as well.

If you are interested in learning how to think positively, then check out the 7 critical steps in this guide.

We have all run into them before. No matter what we do...there is always someone looking to make your life miserable. Don't give up...there's help.
You’re walking along a dark, winding street on your way home from the bus stop. Suddenly, you sense rather than hear the presence of someone close behind you – matching your every step. Tiny hairs on your neck rise in a frosty chill that permeates your body. Fear has you in its grip.
Quickly, you think about your options. Fight – or flight? You can stay and face the danger or run as fast as you can to safety. It’s a human feeling as old as time and is usually accompanied by a racing heart, rapid breathing and muscles tensing.
If we didn’t have that innate ability to sense and react immediately to fear, the human race likely wouldn’t have survived. Fear begins with a stimulus that’s transmitted to the brain. How we respond to the fear triggers can be automatic or a series of communications that lead to action or thought.
Unfortunately, fear is a product of our unconscious brain and the result of millenniums of scary past stimuli that we can’t undo. But, we can learn to control our fears. This book explores fear and how it can render us helpless or provide us with the positive stimulus we need to move on.

Because of this, it is imperative that we begin to change the way we look at ourselves and the way we look at the world.
