Developing a high level of positive self esteem

Assalamualaikum beloved brothers and sisters, Developing a high level of positive self esteem can make us be an optimistic person who can handle daily life situations, conflicts, resisting negative pressures, dealing with trials and tribulations and eventually develop good interpersonal and intrapersonal skills as a true muslim in our daily life for the sake of Allah. Positive self esteem is believing in oneself, having self respect, allowing the love to grow in us, developing the ability to accept ourselves in a positive way and the ability to avoid depression and living a tranquil life in Allah’s Love and Light. Besides that, high level of positive self esteem is self-confidence which involves beliefs about ability and future performance. Our inner self will be self esteemed where we are able to balance love, honesty and truth to build self-confidence and be competent to cope with life’s challenges and live a worthy life for the sake of Allah.
A muslim with a positive, high self esteem loves and appreciates life, reflects a positive image from within that often leads to being humble, forgiving and believes in learning from mistakes and striving to achieve potential success in this life and in the hereafter. This can make us reach a stage where we can have the courage and inner strength to actually change the hurting moments of the challenges in life into healing moments by the will of Allah. Psychologist says that almost every aspect of our lives -- our personal happiness, success, relationships with others, achievement, creativity, dependencies are dependent on our level of self-esteem. Hence, having a high level of positive self esteem is essential to us in order to have consistent strength, confidence, and ability to face, deal and go through all the trials and challenges in life effectively with a positive mind-set and live a worthy life for the sake of Allah. May Allah grant us the ability to stimulate our inner feelings, motivate our minds and arouse our spirit in order that our speech, actions and thoughts are reflected positively, optimistically and virtuously as true muslims who are close to Allah, as they are the essence of being a self motivated true muslim with a high positive self esteem level. InshaAllah. May Allah forgive us and place us in the group of people who have good intentions, who love and help each other for the sake of Allah and may Allah place us in the group of As-habul Yamin on the Day of Judgment in aakhirah. Ameen. Wallahualam bissawab With love and du’as,
