A low sense of self-worth and self-esteem can keep you from believing you are capable of achieving goals and living your best life. I refer to this as the inside and outside feelings. Self-worth is the inside of you and your core self-beliefs. In comparison, self-esteem is the outside of you and you as a person and your capabilities in the world.
Having low self-worth and low self-esteem usually originates from traumatic childhood experiences such as abuse or neglect. If your parents often criticized you as a child, it probably left you with very low self-esteem, not believing in yourself, always doubting yourself, and questioning if you deserve what you have.
Moreover, your parents likely have suffered from low self-worth and low self-esteem themselves hence were unable to model healthy communication, conflict management, assertiveness, and healthy boundaries.
Fortunately, individual counseling or couples counseling can help you discover the root cause of low self-worth and low self-esteem and reverse negative thinking that will ultimately improve your well-being and your relationship.
