HomeSelf Relationship QuestionsHow can I take myself seriously?
Roy Murray asked 4 months ago

I often find myself making jokes about myself or downplaying my accomplishments.

I don't mean to do this, but it's just a habit that I've developed over the years. As a result, I don't think people take me seriously and it's really holding me back. How can I change this?

If you want people to take you seriously, you need to start by taking yourself seriously.This means respecting yourself and your abilities, setting boundaries, and speaking up for yourself.It might also involve standing up to your critics and learning to take constructive feedback.Remember, you're the only one who can control how people see you.So if you want to be seen as a competent and capable individual, that's exactly what you need to be.
