How To Boost Your Self Esteem

How To Boost Your Self Esteem – Offspring’s “Self-Esteem” – The album “Smash” is considered to be The Offspring’s break-out record. It was what really catapulted the band to fame.

The said album was released in 1994 by Epitaph Records and has sold eight million copies which also made it the highest-selling record ever produced by an independent label.

Incidentally Epitaph Records is also owned by Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz. He initially had his misgivings about the band but when he heard their single “Baghdad” produced in 1991, he changed his mind and signed them up.

The following year, they released the album “Ignition” and its success has put them on tour together with No Doubt, Pennywise and Voodoo Glow Skulls.

By 1993, they returned to the studio to record “Smash” and released it the following year with little knowledge that this was going to create a niche for them. The album was catapulted to fame by the singles “Self-Esteem”, “Gotta Get Away” and “Come Out and Play.”

The band is composed of Bryan “Dexter” Holland on vocals, Greg Kriesel or Greg K on bass guitar, Kevin Wasserman, also called “Noodle” on lead guitar and Atom Willard on drums. Prior to joining the band, Kevin Wasserman was the school janitor recruited by Dexter Holland and Greg Krieser reportedly because he was old enough to procure alcohol for them.

The Offspring’s “Self Esteem” is the second single released from Smash and speaks of being trapped in an emotionally abusive relationship and having full knowledge that one is not getting what one deserves but is too weak to get out of it because of a very low self-esteem.

The lyrics of the song are as follows:

(The Offspring)

I wrote her off for the tenth time today
And practice all the things I would say
But she came overI lost my nerve
I took her back and made her dessert
Now I know I’m being used
That’s okay man because I like the abuse
I know she’s playing with me
That’s okay cause I got no self esteem
We make plans to go out at night
I wait till 2 then I turn out the light
All this rejection’s got me so low
If she keeps it up, I just might tell her no

When she’s saying that she wants only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she’s saying that I’m like a disease
Then I wonder how much more I can spend
Well I guess I should speak up for myself
But I really think it’s better this way
The more you suffer
The more it shows you really care
Right? yeah yeah yeah
Now I’ll relate this little bit
That happens more than I’d like to admit
Late at night she knocks on my door
Drunk again and looking to score
Now I know I should say no
But that’s kind of hard when she’s ready to go
I may be dumb
But I’m not a dweeb
I’m just a sucker with no self esteem

When she’s saying that she wants only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she’s saying that I’m like a disease
Then I wonder how much more I can spend
Well I guess I should speak up for myself
But I really think it’s better this way
The more you suffer
The more it shows you really care
Right? yeah yeah yeah

The Band Offspring’s Song on Self Esteem

Any fan of rock music would be familiar with the band Offspring. The band’s album titled SMASH was what gave them the first taste of true success, and it sold over eight million copies around the world.

Self Esteem was one of the tracks on this album, and as the name suggests, it speaks of the importance of self-esteem. To be precise, it speaks of the destruction that low self-esteem can cause in your life.

Here is a little more about the song:

This song speaks about a man who is trapped in a relationship that is destructive to his own self. The relationship is with a woman who he loves. It speaks of a woman that the man has written off and wants to leave, but being an emotionally weaker person, he just cannot do it when he is faced to face with this woman. Rather, he spoils her when he sees her, thinking that he may have been wrong about her all along. The man then goes on to say that later he is confident that she is using him, and he still doesn’t do a thing about it. He has begun to enjoy the feeling of low self-esteem. Although this man knows that the woman is just playing around with his emotions, he does not do a thing about it, because he himself has written himself off as a person with low self-esteem.

The singer then speaks of the man making plans to take his lady friend out in the evening. She totally disregards his plans and does not care to even tell him that she doesn’t want to go out. After waiting till the middle of the night, the man feels rejected and abused once again, and feels that he may yet leave her if she keeps treating him this way. So, we see a repetition of feelings of rejection and abuse, and still no effort on the man’s part to help himself get out of this destructive relationship.

We then are told that the woman lies to this man that she loves him, while she sleeps with his friends every now and then. One can only imagine the destruction this piece of information can cause to the poor man’s psyche. The man fools himself into believing that the more he suffers the more his love for the woman is proved, and so he remains stuck in this vicious cycle of abuse and forgiveness.

Yes, this is only a song, but you would be surprised to see the number of people who are stuck in such a cycle of events, and the popularity of the song is proof of the existence of this enormous number of people.

This song well explains the state of mind of a weak person who is in an abusive relationship with an emotionally stronger person. The truth is that no one can hurt you unless you let them. Forgiveness is not wrong. But forgive for the right reason, not because you are too weak to leave the other person – that is just insecurity and not the right motive for forgiveness. Make sure your self-esteem remains intact, and you will never see such a situation in your life.
