Self-Esteem

Self-esteem is a personal evaluation of self-worth. It deals with emotions and beliefs and respect of self. Somebody can feel confident and valuable. But people struggle with low self-esteem, frequently dealing with self-doubt and negative emotions.

Common Symptoms of Low Self-Esteem

• depression
• social anxiety
• frequent embarrassment
• feelings of inadequacy
• fear of abandonment or rejection
• lack of healthy assertion

Causes

Low self-esteem often co-occurs with depression and anxiety. Feelings of inadequacy become overwhelming alongside the need to perfect situations. Self-esteem is usually deep rooted, situated in childhood experiences and development.

Treatment

Treatment for low self-esteem can include medication and therapy. A therapist can help clients establish realistic self-awareness, and nurture feelings of confidence and adequacy. Therapy helps clients to recognize triggers of negative self-talk, redirecting negative thought patterns into positive ones.
