Why is it important to be aware of what you feel in your work to improve your self-esteem?

In working with improving your self-esteem, work with your feelings is important.
I have written some things you can think about when you train yourself to become aware of you feelings. The next step is to work on how to handle your feelings. When you are in a situation that you feel distressed about it is possible that you try to avoid the feelings or may be you act out feelings. Remember what I said about that the psyche likes balance.
Here is a good strategy and I know it´s easy to say but hard to do, but being aware of what is possible to do is a first step.
Let´s say you are in a situation where you feel bad. Try the following steps:
– Observe what you feel and if there is a another feeling underneath.
– Analyze the feeling, does it scare you?, does it overwhelm you? etc.
– Accept that the feeling is there right now but that it will pass as other bad feelings you have had have finally passed. This is important part. A trap can be to be so caught in the feeling that the impression is that it will never pass and that you can´t endure it, so repeat to yourself that it will pass, because both good and bad feelings always pass after a while and get replaced by other feelings.
