How Facebook Is Ruining Your Self-Confidence

Why do so many women give their power and self-confidence away to Facebook?

What used to be a fun place to connect and share, has now become a place that leaves so many women feeling depressed, isolated, exhausted, jealous, ugly, anxious and powerless.

Single Women, Moms, Female Doctors, Teenage Girls, Successful women, Millionaires, Teachers, Fitness Instructors …you name it…women of all sorts of backgrounds are ruining their self esteem and self worth through Facebook.

Unfortunately, the same platform that can leave women jumping for joy and inspired to live a great life, so often it does just the opposite. They walk away from our computers feeling like CRAP!

So…why are some women’s feelings of self-worth and self-esteem so dependent on the likes and shares they receive?

Research has shown that…

People who are more goal oriented and feel a sense of purpose in life are less sensitive to their Facebook or social media’s responses.

Why? Because people who are more goal oriented are more likely to think of their empowering future and what lies ahead. They don’t need the quick fix of a like to prove that they are progressing towards their dreams. If you have a dream and a plan and you are taking action towards that plan…you are able to see into your future.

People who lack goals often suffer from the need to get their emotional needs met in the short term vs long term. They want success now and they are unwilling to pay their dues for love, health, money, a dream home, dream career etc. So, when they see someone else on Facebook that has what they want… they become jealous, sad, and self-sabotaging.

When we have a sense of purpose, our life has meaning. We feel a deeper connection with people and the outside world. We know that we have something to contribute. So, if you know you have a purpose, you aren’t so bummed out when your Facebook posse doesn’t “like” your posts.
