Self esteem usually refers to how we view and think about ourselves and the value that we place on ourselves as a person.
Having the human capacity to judge and place value to something is where we might run into problems with self- esteem.
What is Low Self- Esteem?
Have you ever been dissatisfied or unhappy with yourself on the whole?
Do you ever think that you are weak, stupid, not good enough, flawed in some way, inferior to other people, useless, worthless, unattractive, ugly, unlovable, a loser, or a failure?
Everyone uses these words on themselves at times, usually when they experience a challenging or stressful situation. However, if you often think of yourself in these terms, then you might have a problem with low self- esteem.
the Impact of Low Self- Esteem
Low self-esteem can have an affect on various aspects of a person. A person with low self- esteem probably says a lot of negative things about themselves. They might criticise themselves, their actions, and abilities or joke about themselves in a negative way. They might put themselves down, doubt themselves or blame themselves when things go wrong.
Often, they might not recognise their positive qualities or brush away compliments they are given. They may focus on mistakes they have made or things that they could have done better.
People with low self- esteem might expect that things won’t turn out well for them. They might often feel sad, depressed, anxious, guilty, ashamed, frustrated and angry. They might have difficulty speaking up for themselves and their needs, avoid challenges and opportunities.
Low self- esteem can also have an impact on a person’s performance at work or at school and so it is important to get some help to overcome these feelings that can have such a negative impact on a persons life.
