What Is Self-Esteem?

Self-esteem refers to how we feel about ourselves and our abilities. It is the way we evaluate our worth and the confidence we have in our skills, accomplishments, and qualities. High self-esteem can lead to a positive outlook on life, better relationships, and a sense of achievement, while low self-esteem can contribute to negative thoughts, feelings of inadequacy, and difficulty achieving personal goals.

Signs of Low Self-Esteem

Low self-esteem can manifest in a variety of ways, including:

  1. Negative self-talk: You may often engage in negative self-talk, such as criticizing yourself, doubting your abilities, or focusing on your flaws.
  2. Avoidance of challenges: You may avoid challenges or new experiences out of fear of failure or rejection.
  3. Difficulty accepting compliments: You may struggle to accept compliments or feel uncomfortable when receiving praise.
  4. People-pleasing: You may tend to put others' needs before your own and prioritize their opinions over your own.
  5. Self-isolation: You may withdraw from social situations or avoid connecting with others out of fear of judgment or rejection.
