I used to have that constant mental battle with my self. I was picky on what was not perfect, I was constantly judging and comparing, and I didn't see what was actually good about being me. This didn't happen through school actually this happened after school. I am a 100% a true believer of being kind to your self and having positive affirmations. Before I lose you on the 'this chick is weird' thing, note that t I also had that view, and it has taken me a a bit of time to accept that this is what I do and this is how good it makes me feel. Weird or not, it works and I take the time in a day to write it down.
Every morning (okay maybe not every single morning, I do have my lazy days), I write 10 things that I am grateful, it can literally be anything! By doing this, you acknowledge what you have in the world and on what you have that day. This also takes away the un important and distracting thing that your brain makes up. By doing this, I became more focused on what I had, than what I didn't have or what I wanted. This helped in so many more ways than you can imagine. In surfing, in self image, health, training, family, the list goes on.
Im not a life coach but these are the little things that have helped me get a little further in every aspect of my life. The battle of self image was a biggie and I will be surprised if you are a woman and have not experienced it. Constantly comparing myself to others was something I did a lot. Even with my sister, I would beat my self down for not having her body!
I hope that these little things that I note will make a difference in what ever you are trying to achieve. Its never too late to start.
