I’ve had the intention for sharing tips on building self esteem for a long time.
In fact, it took me years to even realise that I was suffering from poor self esteem.
I assumed that the critical way I felt about myself was normal!
I Never Seemed To Have Self Confidence
In fact I do remember one uncomfortable experience from when I was about eight years old.
For many people, I guess it wouldn’t have affected them. But for me – it spoiled my whole night
It was around Christmas time and my uncle and aunt and cousins were at our house.
They had come for what we called “tea” which was a meal starting at around 5 o’clock in the afternoon.
Because it was a special occasion the adults had decided it would be a good idea for the children in the family to entertain the rest of those present by singing a song or reciting some poetry.
That was one of my most hated activities.
I managed to put off having my turn for a long as possible and finished up being the last one to “perform” by reciting a poem.
I couldn’t get out of saying my piece… And so what did I do?
I insisted that I would only say my poem if I could sit on the floor behind the settee where no-one could see me – and the lights were turned out!
The poem was called, “Jonathan comes when Jonathan hums when Jonathan mends the mat” and it has been burned into my memory forever through that experience.
Looking at me now you wouldn’t credit that that was me back then. And I’m telling you the Johnathon story so you can see where I am coming from.

Incidentally, Dean Holland would say it differently, he would say:-
