How to overcome poor self image

No one can ever deny how important physical appearance became as the result of the reinforcement done by the media. One of the major reasons for low self esteem these days is a poor self image that results from comparing one’s looks to movie stars. (see Self image and the media)

Lots of people nowadays try to help those who have a poor self image by letting them focus on other aspects other than their looks but these efforts never work and will never work. If the subconscious mind already holds the belief that looks are so important and if all of your peers hold the same belief then you will be fooling yourself if you tried to deny the importance of physical appearance.

So if this is the case, how can someone with average looks overcome a poor self image problem? This is the question I am going to answer in this article.

The truth about self image

According to a survey 80% of American women are dissatisfied with their self image!!
Do you know what does this mean?

It means that while you are obsessed about your looks in the presence of 10 other women, 8 of them will not be examining your looks but instead they will be obsessed about their own self image!!

Courtney Cox, the famous celebrity has even declared once that she is obsessed with the skin she has on her elbow. Another famous model that I can’t remember her name now said that she has never felt beautiful even though everyone thinks that she is gorgeous.

How to get over the poor self image problem

In the Solid Self confidence program i said that the self image ,after all, is not by any means related to people’s view of you but its only related to the way you see yourself and this brings us to two very important points:

  • Almost everyone is not satisfied with their looks: Looks are important but most people are obsessed with their own self image so why do you feel uncomfortable around them then?
  • Even celebrities have poor self image problems: Being beautiful doesn’t prevent the person from being obsessed with his looks. while someone might appear to have perfect looks he may be obsessed by something as little as the acne he has on his face!!

Next time you meet new people remember that they are not super heroes but just humans like you who have self image problems. When realizing that most people are not satisfied with their looks you won’t have any problem feeling comfortable around them even if you have below average looks.
