Confidence in one’s own worth or abilities; self-respect.
What is low self-esteem?
Believing there is something wrong with yourself.
Believing you are unlovable or undeserving.
Believing you are withdrawn from society.
Having a low self-esteem can be so painful and can have a damaging effect on your life. There are many physical and behavioural symptoms (seen below) of low self-esteem but help is always here. Talk with the people that matter most, find motivational quotes on Pinterest, take a walk in the sunshine.
- Fear and Anxiety
- Panic Attacks
- Workaholic Behaviour
- Passive-Aggressive Behaviour
You are not alone. Many people in society today deal with low self-esteem on a regular basis. They could have all of the symptoms that I listed above, or they could just have one. Someone can have a panic attack but believe that they have a good self-esteem. We are all different but all the same. We are here to help each other out.
Talking is just one of the options that you and others can talk about self-esteem. There are many wonderful tips out there. Dove Body Products started the Dove Self-Esteem Project for women and girls. This is such an awesome website to help with building body confidence and self-esteem.

Other tips and tricks for building self-esteem are:
Keeping a compliment jar – writing one positive or thing you love about yourself every day for a week or an entire month and putting it into a jar. Read them all at the end.
Writing down your thoughts and feelings in a journal.
Stop judging others around you.
Exercise, practice yoga, or meditate.
I know there are days where I have to ground myself and find my self-esteem. The hardest part of my day is not putting myself down or believing that I did something wrong. Maybe I can even follow my own tips that I provided.
