Esteem is a lack in self-respect. People with a low self-esteem tend to not appreciate
themselves weather its for their traits or inner feelings. This can eventually
lead to depression, anxiety and even self-harm if it gets to an extreme level.
Self-esteem can be what you think about yourself in many ways.
-Factors that affect your self-esteem and health
Perfection: Usually people with a low self-esteem aim for perfection in
everything or else they think whatever they do is worthless and has no value in
self-image: They only see
the bad in themselves and are never satisfied with how they look. Because of
this insecurity starts overwhelming them.
Failure: They have a fear of failure so they always stay in their shells
and hate coming out of it to try new ideas in life, and so they just stay in
their own boxed mindset and hate opening up to new experiences and risks.
Comparison: Wherever they are in life they always compare themselves to other
people and constantly feel degraded. This worsens their mind set.
Anxiety: Believe it or not low self-esteem can be caused by a past
traumatic experience that someone went through and it starts to take over your
emotions and how you perceive everything.
communication: They are
socially inactive. And have trouble expressing how they feel so they let all of
their emotions pile up inside of them.
blaming: Everything that goes wrong you tend
to blame yourself for it even if you had nothing to do with it you always try
to find a reason to blame yourself for it.
Undeserving: You can’t accept happiness coming your way and you feel guilty for
the slightest things that you do.
