Overcoming low self-esteem is not an overnight change. And if your low self-esteem is especially burdensome, understandably you are eager to overcome it. But though impatience can motivate you to practice and to do exercises, being overeager can lead you further away from your goal. The more you pay attention to the lack of self-esteem, the more it will dominate your life.
Therefore it is advisable to take a break from working on your self-esteem, from time to time. You may even discover that your self-esteem is better than you think. Now your real, true self can shimmer through and you are able to experience your natural self-esteem. At least you can use your break to take stock and re-organize your practice. Then, after one or two weeks, have a fresh start and practice with new vigor.
