What is low self-esteem?
Low self-esteem is when we place little value on ourselves. We may have developed a negative view of ourselves and life, which can make it seem hopeless or pointless.
We may spend a lot of time comparing ourselves to others, thinking that we are worthless and that others are much better than ourselves, which affects our confidence and self-worth. This can negatively influence our relationships and life and stop us from going for opportunities and moving forwards.
What causes low self-esteem?
Our self-esteem can be impacted by lots of different things – life experiences, our childhood, our family, our relationships. Sometimes there are particular people who make us feel inadequate.
We develop negative beliefs and they affect how we feel about ourselves and our worth.
Our own personalities can influence these beliefs, but these negative messages can also come from what we see on the media or our interactions on social media, our experiences, the people we spend time with and the world around us.
