According to the 2017 Dove Global Girls Beauty and Confidence report, 9 in 10 girls in the UK will not spend time with family and friends, participate in activities outside the house, or try out for a team or club if they aren’t happy with the way they look.
This shocking report highlights how many girls are missing out on so many opportunities because of how they feel about themselves. Dove recommends the following as ways we can improve our self-esteem:
Avoiding negative talk
Connecting with people who love you
Learn to be assertive
Set yourself a challenge
Focus on your positives
Take care of yourself
Get support if things get too much
If you are struggling with low self esteem talk to someone and please take action by trying the above steps.
