Self-esteem relates to the beliefs you have about yourself – what you think about the type of person you are, your abilities, the positive and negative things you tell yourself and, therefore, what you expect from life and your future..
If you have healthy self-esteem, your beliefs about yourself will generally be positive. You may experience difficult times in your life, but you will generally be able to deal with these without them having too much of a long-term negative impact on you.
If you have low self-esteem, your beliefs about yourself will often be negative. You will tend to focus on your weaknesses or mistakes that you have made, and may find it hard to recognise the positive parts of your personality. You may also blame yourself for any difficulties or failures that you have.
Lack of self-esteem often manifests itself in a lack of confidence or a feeling of little self-worth.
Some factors that can contribute to lack of self-esteem and confidence include
Difficult childhood experiences
Difficult life events
A tendency towards negative thinking
Finding it hard to relate to other people
Other people feeding into your low self-esteem, being negative about you or making you feel like you have little worth
Stress and excessive pressure
Discrimination and stigma
Social isolation and loneliness
Trauma, abuse or bullying
