Feel Better about Yourself Now by Overcoming Struggles in Life and Building Self-Worth

How do you truly feel better about yourself when struggles in life are in your face?

What concerns you the most?

Could it be perhaps answering to what is the meaning of my life, or thoughts such as, “Why me?”

Are you operating in the manner you were meant to? I mean by always creating the life you want while in this world?

Below, you’ll find out how to begin building self worth and to feel better about yourself all the time.

I’m saying getting over life challenges and struggles in life just by your thought process.

I mean thoughts and perceptions that become a language you made for yourself for how to live your life.

Keep in mind as you accept this article for its value to you, this spiritual metaphysical principle from the Course in Miracles:

  • “You who speak in dark and devious symbols do not understand the language you have made. It has no meaning, for its purpose is not communication, but rather the disruption of communication.”

Where does shifting to feel better about yourself come from?

Everything you experience as real, or think is real, is either a reflection or projection of the thought system you choose to live by.

Is it of the real or unreal about you?

I mean are you operating from the Holy Spirit, which is your inner divine Self, Who is conflict free and whole-minded with God?

Or, are you operating of the ego which feels separated from your Creator? Likewise, has a thought system built on doubt, fear, guilt, and judgement?

Is your own identity separate from God’s, or do you feel connected?

If you’re not feeling connected you are projecting yourself away from or outside of God.

If you choose to experience inner peace, you must choose to change everything you now experience that feels uncertain.

It must be real and certain.

You’ll need to usher in new ideas and ways of being that will extend the love which you are. Yes, rather than projecting wishes.

Don’t get me wrong, when you project you can still be positive. But you’ll simply have some uncertainties and struggles in life to deal with.

But while you’re extending you will be certain about your reality. So understand the “projection-extension” mix, or ratio going on within you.

Keep in mind that the thoughts you have that are real are from your spirit. Likewise, whatever is from the Holy Spirit extends as an idea which is eternal and infinite.

Real ideas that you contemplate and then share never stop or come to an end.

(I also recommend this other related article: true happiness where we are filled with inner peace even while facing life challenges.)

What do I mean by this?

How can what is always true and of infinite reality turn on itself? Just as well try to overcome the oneness it is?

It can’t.

But this is exactly what you do when you struggle and try to be something you are not.

You make a war against yourself. I’m not speaking about, here, going against the grain which the world laid out.

But I am meaning when you go against your true free will, which is the will of the whole, or God’s Will.

When uncertainty and struggles in life strike you try to focus on the oneness that you are to all that is real.

The Course in Miracles further states: 

  • “The Holy Spirit’s function is entirely communication. He therefore must remove whatever interferes with communication in order to restore it.”

I’m saying to take your emphasis off the body.

Try to see or understand the whole, by realizing an inner-connectedness to something amazing beyond the physical.

Try to envision wholeness behind the dream of form, time and space.

You know it exists, but you’ve been afraid of it. It won’t kill you in fact it gives you eternal life.


Let’s take this deeper now just for a moment or so.

Consider what would happen if God’s Home, the One Mind of creation, projected itself as being divided. As well, summed up sizes of bigger and smaller, truer and less true.

The light that you are would grow dim, always having a combination of darkness mixed with light. It would be, sometimes more, sometimes less.

You’d always be concerned about gaining and being afraid of loss. Does this seem familiar?

Is this where you are now?

Can you see the conflict and all the different forms of illusion that can keep you from trying to feel better about yourself?

They fight to win the contest of being truest.

Why and how do they fight, you might ask?

Illusions meet each other all the time, while truth doesn’t have a meeting place because it’s all there is.

When illusions meet there is conflict. Peace as the shared characteristic of truth extends itself.

Fear multiplies while working diligently to dominate, and is the main ingredient for war.

Peace is the state where love abides, and continues its love by sharing itself. Conflict and peace are opposites.

Where one abides the other cannot be, and where either goes the other disappears.

Let me ask you something that may make you feel nice about yourself.

When you communicate to others in a way that honors their deeper being or essence, don’t you always feel better about yourself for doing so?

On the other hand, doesn’t it feel good when others believe in you, trust you, and support you?

This is the giving and receiving realm of the memory of God. It’s your remembering Him, and you’ve been blocked from it.

The ego has obscured the light with its illusions, mostly, untruths and fear.

Yet, just beyond all this meaninglessness shines the Light of your true Self.

Your radiance sides with peace, and it is seen and felt by everyone because of your right-minded nature of spirit.
