Self-esteem is your opinion of yourself and is strongly related to how you view and react to the things that happen in your life.
It’s totally normal for people to feel down about themselves from time to time, but when these feelings start to hang around all the time, it’s usually an indication of low self-esteem. If you have low self-esteem it means that you have negative ideas and feelings about your worth and value as a person. There are various signs of low self-esteem, including:
- Being really critical of yourself
- Focusing on the negatives and ignoring your accomplishments
- Comparing yourself to others
- Not accepting any compliments that you receive
- Negative self-talk.
It may be that those around you don’t have enough self-esteem to be positive to you – or those around them!
