Low Self-Esteem

Low Self-Esteem can be described as when you don’t think well of yourself and you judge yourself to be inferior to others. This can prevent you enjoying life or reaching your full potential. It impacts your life.

Self-esteem can be affected by events such as bullying, losing a job, a divorce or a physical illness – the same things that often cause anxiety, stress and depression, so low self-esteem is often associated with anxiety or depression.

Low Self-Esteem

How to tell if you have
Low Self-Esteem

Characteristics of people with low self-esteem include:

Disliking or hating yourself

Maybe your body, your weight or how you act.

Thinking no-one likes you

Which is not true – but you still think it.

Unable to make decisions

For fear they will always be the wrong decision.

Blaming yourself

For things that are clearly not your fault.

Self Loathing

Unable to identify any good points or strengths.

Feeling guilty

When receiving gists or spending on yourself.

When to reach out…

If, after practicing these techniques for a few weeks, you see no improvement you should seek help. Speak to a friend, family member, your GP or a counsellor. A 3rd party will often help you formulate your thoughts and set realistic targets to change the way you think.

Improving your self-esteem

There are many self-help techniques you can start with; here are five…

Avoid criticising yourself

When you next start doing this, think if we would think the same of someone else? If not, then don’t about yourself.

Avoid negative people

This is particularly true on social media – don’t connect with those that criticise others. You can help yourself by connecting with more positive people.

Focus on positive things

It might be helpful to say and think positive things about yourself, and if this is difficult, write a list you can easily look at.

Avoid criticising yourself

When you next start doing this, think if we would think the same of someone else? If not, then don’t about yourself.

Learn to say No

Make decisions based on what you want to do. You don’t have to always say yes to be liked.
