Me on twitter vs me in real life aren’t too different, but online I can portray an ALWAYS-confident-positive-happy-go-lucky-guy.

Truth is, it’s not always like that, BUT building self esteem/love is a skill.

Since I’m 29 I’m gonna do a mini thread on 29 ways I build myself up:
1. Sing and dance naked. Make a hype playlist and sing in the shower. No inhibitions, your naked, you’re feeling yourself; sing loud and proud until you don’t feel weird anymore.
2. Don’t just be optimistic, but be annoyingly optimistic. If you can convince your mind to see the worst in things, you have to unlearn that and convince your mind to see the absolute best in things.
3. Text your mom/dad/parents/guardians/aunt/uncle/grandparents. Whoever helped raise you and you still have good ties with: theyre you’re ultimate hype people.
4. Learn how to communicate when you’re angry/sad etc. it’s tough to not project outwards but taking a breath and thinking twice before saying something hurtful will teach you resolve.
5. Find something physically active, build it into your routine and congratulate yourself for moving and making your heart happy.
6. Take selfies and send them to friends/partners/twitter and get positive affirmation from multiple sources.
7. Like selfies, share your art or your creations the same way.
8. Buy yourself clothes that you like and donate the ones you don’t. Double dose of positivity and you help yourself and other people.
9. Donate your time if you don’t have funds. Volunteer for those who are less fortunate, be a mentor, or tutor for an after school program.
10. Being a mentor or someone that people look up to, especially our youth, can do wonders for your self worth. Your value is exemplified ten fold when you have someone asking for your advice.
11. Go to work excited. I know it can be tough but at least you have the opportunity to work.
12. If you don’t like your job, make steps to start moving on. It’s a privilege to have that option, but utilize it and get that paycheck to find another way to get a paycheck.
13. Use your talents to get your paycheck. It feels good.
14. Your talents don’t always have to be flashy. Being amicable, a leader, a friend, a parent; those are all talents that don’t get the spotlight.
15. If you have a spotlight talent, aka art, dance, acting, singing, use it for fun too, not just to try to make a buck.
16. Share your talents intimately. Use your talents to give a friend a gift or sing for a loved one or create something wonderful for your family.
17. Share your talents frivolously. Meaning, put it out into the world. Put it on blast on social media. You never know who you can connect with.
18. You never know who you can connect with, and you should always welcome their compliments.
19. Learn how to accept compliments graciously. Start off with a simple “thank you” rather than self deprecation and denial of how awesome you are.
20. Self deprecating jokes can be a tool for comedians, but if you aren’t a comedian and you’ve already used that joke with a friend, I encourage you to stop it.
21. Be kind to yourself.
22. Seriously, be kind to yourself. Let yourself make mistakes and learn how to realize, it’s *just* a mistake, not an end-all-be-all of who you are as a person or a reflection of your character.
23. If you make mistakes or feel embarrassed, let yourself go through the emotions but also self reflect on why you feel those emotions. Is it because you care too much about what others think? Or maybe you’re too hard on yourself.
24. It’s 100% okay to care what others think, just make sure the “others” you’re caring about actually care about you.
25. Don’t be so hard on yourself. It’s not that serious and if you need a reminder of that, hit me up.
26. Don’t be so hard on other people. Your partner, your family. Learn to express your concerns.
27. If you have opposing views with other people, that’s fine. If their views take away the rights of others, that is not fine.
28. Have a list of positive affirmations that you run through your head daily. Something you genuinely, truly believe that you are, 100%.
29. Learn to love and let love. Loving others, loving your pets, loving your partner or partners. Learning to love ideas that are new to you and challenge your own.
