Low Self-Esteem

 

Self-esteem is the foundation for a fulfilling life, impacting how we see ourselves, navigate relationships, and approach challenges. Conversely, low self-esteem (characterised by a negative perception of worth) can be a persistent roadblock to happiness and success. While everyone experiences self-doubt occasionally, chronic low self-esteem can leave you feeling isolated, discouraged, and hesitant to reach for your full potential.

    If you are experiencing low self-esteem, there are a number of signs to look out for. These include:

    • Negative self-talk: Frequently criticising yourself and focusing on your flaws, ignoring your strengths and achievements.
    • Fear of failure: The fear of making mistakes or disappointing others prevents you from taking risks or trying new things.
    • Difficulty accepting compliments: Brushing off compliments or feel undeserving of praise.
    • People-Pleasing: Prioritising the needs of others over your own, seeking external validation to feel good about yourself.
    • Social isolation: Withdrawing from social interactions due to fear of rejection or feeling inadequate.
    • Sensitivity to criticism: Taking criticism very personally, feeling attacked and further reinforcing negative self-beliefs.
    • Perfectionism: Setting unrealistically high standards for yourself, leading to disappointment and feelings of inadequacy.
    • Comparison trap: Constantly comparing yourself to others, feeling inferior and inadequate.
