Low Self-Esteem

Self-esteem is a hot topic. People often link someone’s self-esteem to success. People assume that If you have high self-esteem you will be successful and if you have low self-esteem you are more likely to struggle. What most people do not realize is that many people that appear to have high self-esteem really are just the opposite. Inside they look down upon themselves and do not think they are as great as everyone says that they are.

Some people are better at hiding their insecurities than others. Some more obvious signs of low self-esteem are using self-disparaging remarks and taking blame easily. Some other signs are seeking praise from others and fearing rejection. Low self-esteem effects people from all backgrounds and at all ages. Seeking out a counselor can help.
