Why Self Esteem TRUMPS Narcissism!

Take a person who is narcissistic. They need constant validation. They need to always be right. They need to dominate every argument. They need to be seen as strong and powerful by others. ๐Ÿ’ช

But underneath it all is a person with lots of insecurity and fear. Contrary to their self-image, they don’t understand themselves on a deep level. They actually have low self-esteem.ย ๐Ÿ‘€

Now take another person, but this person has high self-esteem. They don’t concern themselves with what others think of them. They understand themselves on a deep level. They are self-accepting of who they are. They don’t have much desire to flaunt themselves.ย ๐Ÿคทโ™‚๏ธ

They carry their own Inner Cheerleader.ย ๐Ÿฅณ

๐ŸŒŸ The difference between narcissism and self-esteem is the source a person gets their self-worth from. Narcissism depends upon their environment; self-esteem is created from within. ๐ŸŒŸ

Can you relate to either of these types of people? Perhaps you can relate a bit of both of them?ย ๐Ÿค”

I admit I do!ย ๐Ÿ™‹โ™‚๏ธ

Yes, I’ve sometimes looked at how many Likes I got on my photos on social media. I’ve sometimes looked to see who Liked my content. I’ve sometimes gotten worried when my posts didn’t get a lot of reception.ย ๐Ÿ˜จ

But then again, I don’t allow myself to depend on Likes and Comments to make me happy. I am genuinely happy with who I am as a person, my sense of self. ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ค

I share this photo above mostly because modeling photos are what people like to see and engage with on social. So, here’s your eye-candy; this is my facetious impression of “modeling”! ๐Ÿ˜

And I present all of this to you with so much love!ย โค๏ธ

๐ŸŒŸย When our self-acceptance and self-worth is entirely dependent on our environment, we’re going to be consistently disappointed.ย ๐ŸŒŸ

Why? Because we won’t always have people on the Internet to validate us. Because we won’t always have people in our lives who are kind to us. Because none of us have 100% control over what happens in our environment. ๐Ÿ™Œ

So we will always have to keep refilling our Happiness Cup endlessly. And if there comes a day when our environment won’t serve us, what are we left with? An empty cup!ย โ˜•

But, if we pursue a path of building our self-esteem instead, one which is rooted from within, we can refill our cups whenever we want! We’ll have full control over them! ๐Ÿ’ช
