In brief: Be Productive

Find something you can do through volunteerism; start a home based business.
Anytime you are helping others adn making an income you will have good self-esteem. I have seen a couple of people that were born with no legs and no arms that became motivational speakers and learned to do many things for themselves.

Being kind and gentle with your thoughts, which begins with paying attention to them. That inner critic can be harsh, however they has been with you for a long time to keep you safe. Thoughts often determine our feelings, which can determine our esteem.

In brief: Acknowledge yourself

In general focus on your talents and abilities than your difficulties.
Avoid "should"ing. If you fail at something try to remind yourself that you "made a mistake" and that you are "not the mistake." be realistic in your goals for yourself.
