Set goals that are reachable so that you do not consider yourself a failure.
Be honest about who you are and where you are going with your family and loved ones.

Do not hang onto tired relationships—they drag your self-esteem down.
Get pets if you need a boost to your self-esteem.
Get a new hairdo. Get a facial and new makeup—even if it is for a day.
