Self-Esteem Therapy

Low self-esteem is a negative belief or attitude towards oneself, characterized by feelings of inadequacy, unworthiness and self-doubt. It’s important to understand that low self-esteem is different from humility or modesty, which are characterized by an accurate and healthy view of oneself. Low self-esteem is not a personal failing or something that one is born with. It is often the result of past experiences, such as abuse, neglect, or trauma during childhood. Low self-esteem can lead to depression, anxiety, and even substance abuse problems. Common signs of suffering from low self-esteem include:

  • You feel bad about yourself and don’t think you deserve good things.
  • When someone compliments you, you don’t believe it or brush it off.
  • You let people treat you poorly because you don’t think you deserve better.
  • You get upset easily when someone criticizes or disapproves of you.
  • You try too hard to please others and neglect your own needs.
  • You don’t allow yourself to relax and have fun.
  • You put a lot of pressure on yourself to be perfect and avoid failure.
  • You don’t take good care of yourself and may use alcohol or drugs excessively.
