What lowers people self-esteem?

Generally, any experience in childhood or adulthood that is hurtful belittling personally disfranchising such as bullying and any situation that is physically sexually and verbally abusive will usually have an effect on someone’s self-esteem, especially if it has come from a person or persons in a position of trust such as a partner family or friends, mental health issues like eating disorders depression self-harm sexual issues and problems with anxiety as well as many others can all be linked to low self-esteem.  Self-esteem can be complex. People can have a wide range of reactions to changing levels of self-esteem that will impact on their beliefs about self, for instance a person can be confident in their ability in work and be successful but at the same time have real difficulties in other areas such as dating or not being able to express themselves to their partner or family. A low level of self-esteem will normally affect a person’s ability to get what they need in life by not being able to say no to people so limiting their ability to keep their time for their own needs, having a low self-worth or opinion of themselves can lead to believing that they are unlovable or unworthy of love and in some cases will actively push people away, they may also sacrifice their needs for another’s benefit trying to give their life a worthy meaning and fulfilling purpose while feeling wanted or useful. Beliefs and opinions become facts  when low self-esteem is involved negative thinking leads to unfair and harsh self judgements. I am useless I am hopeless at everything It was just luck not my ability that got me the job I am selfish for wanting more for myself I am not as important as others I am not very smart like other people I always must apologise first I have no opinions worthy of expressing I feel guilty if I say no to people I feel safe following others I am not competitive I am afraid to be assertive If we place a poor value on ourselves as people we will tend to accept our place in life and not try to better ourselves, people with little self-respect for themselves due to a low level of self-esteem will very often put up with people or situations that are detrimental to their lives, leading to feelings of helplessness and experiencing anxiety and depression. Changing your self-esteem, can it be done? People can and do change their misguided beliefs about their own personal value and overtime some people can start to build confidence and gain more self-respect and confidence in themselves.

What may improve self-esteem

Counselling/Psychotherapy. Drama classes. (good for self-expression and confidence) Artistic expression such as learning painting or pottery etc. Learning meditation and mindfulness and yoga. Helping others by working with a local charity. Reading and learning about psychology and therapy. Any activity that makes you feel good like exercising or a hobby you enjoy. Education and learning something you’re interested in. By challenging and changing their old negative beliefs with therapy it will improve their self-respect and inner confidence, as well as gaining a healthier perspective about themselves, people who start to believe that they do have real value as a person will automatically modify all kinds of personal behaviours. In time by continuing to discover that they do have something to offer of value their self-esteem will improve and inevitably start to have a positive impact on their daily life. If a person’s level of self-esteem recovers sufficiently this change will probably end up making the person more augmentative assertive and more confident, they may change their attitudes and opinions feel less anxious and more relaxed about themselves, they will appreciate that they can live life without always sacrificing their personal needs values or opinions, they may change the way they dress and even change jobs and find new relationships that are not one sided and more beneficial for them. How long change will take is very dependent on the person ability to change and the length of time coping with the problem and the circumstances involved, some people take years and some only a few weeks or months before seeing some personal change in how they feel.
