On the converse, they might have a high regard for the person more if he or she seemed to meet the challenges of arthritis with particular grace and guts. Yet it is not uncommon for those affected people to judge themselves cruelly. For them, personal struggles with illness and arthritis pain can be a blow to their self-esteem down.

The mental picture one has is coloured by many factors and arthritis pain is just one of them. At times, it can start to overshadow all the rest. Some people feel irrational guilt, as if they must have done something pretty bad to feel this terrible pain. Others feel as if they should be able to control their own body better from pain and this start mental illness. Many people find it easier to focus on their negative personality rather than their positive ones. To see how this may be affecting their own self-image, the experts have made a list of 10 things one likes about them. Next, make a list of 10 things one dislike about then or would like to change. Then, ask own which list was easier to complete. Now, focus on the list of likes for a minute. How many are internal qualities and how many are external are there which can help to boost self-esteem. Good self-esteem is built on a balance of both, if the external side is heavy then this can cause problems. Behaviors that are external are more susceptible to the judgments of others and to losses, including the loss of good health.
If self-esteem is sagging, another way to give it a boost is with affirmations like thinking of short, positive statements that one repeat often during the day for inspiration, motivation, or comfort. Affirmations tend to be short and to the point. They can be brief quotes, prayers or proverbs. By focusing on the positive personality and using affirmations to boost the self-esteem, one can meet the challenges of arthritis. Always think positive and arthritis will no more be the illness to bother.
