Self Esteem is how you view yourself. If you have low self esteem, you view yourself in a negative way and don’t feel confident in yourself or value yourself.
Here are some signs you may be struggling with low self esteem:
- you often feel inferior around others
- you don’t feel like you belong
- you don’t feel valued or worthy
- you don’t believe in yourself
- you talk negatively about yourself
- you compare yourself to others
- you feel hopeless
- you feel guilty alot
- you don’t feel “good enough”
- you struggle with self care and asking for help/support
- you have problems communicating, asserting yourself and setting boundaries
- you tend to people please
If you relate to some of these signs of low self esteem, I highly recommend reaching out to a therapist who specializes in low self esteem. In the meantime, you can journal your thoughts and feelings, recite positive affirmations, practice self compassion, do “inner child work”, meditate, cut off/distance yourself from toxic people, make a list of your strengths and read them every day, and lastly focus on a good self care routine. For self care ideas feel free to check out my other blog post on that topic.
