Transcript of Self Esteem

By Tess Despres Self Esteem Self esteem is
a feeling of pride in oneself. 7 in 10 Canadian girls believe that they are not good enough or don't measure up in some way. Only 6% of Canadian girls that are 15 to 17 years old are comfortable calling themselves beautiful. Low self esteem is
a thinking disorder in which an individual views themself as inadequate, unworthy, unlovable and/or incompetent. Self esteem is not based on how others view the person, but how the person views themself. After a negative opinion of oneself is formed, it will affect every thought and action. Signs of Low Self Esteem Self-criticism

Chronic indecision

Excessive will to




Perfectionism Beauty Body Grades Social media presents photoshopped images of models every day, and these are what people think is expected of them. 44% of girls in high school and 15% of guys are attempting to lose weight. Being unsatisfied with body weight can lead to disorders like bulimia and anorexia. Bibliography Pressure to do well in school is also a factor for low self esteem. Students may be pressured by their parents, peers and even themselves to do well in school. 65% of college students base part of their self-worth on their appearance. Students also try dieting to lose weight, and many diets are more harmful than helpful. Treatment Stop telling yourself negative things

Remind yourself of good qualities

Stop trying to please everyone

Vent your frustrations Do not spend time with people who make you feel bad about yourself 80% of Canadian college students base part of their self-worth on their grades. Nearly half (47%) of
Canadian girls aged
10 to 17 have avoided
social activities such
as going to the beach
because they are not
confident about their body. It can be difficult to have self esteem during high school because of Hormones

Physical changes

Peer pressure Emotional changes

Relationships with peers My Opinion 90% of Canadian women said that they are unhappy with their bodies. When they look in the mirror, they do not like what they see. Having low self esteem may not seem like a big deal for some people, but I know that it is a very difficult thing to go through. Thoughts that are louder than anything anybody could say to change your mind. I think that nobody should feel like they are not good enough. To wake up in the morning and immediately have thoughts start running through your mind. Information youthvoices.net

Because nobody wants to live in a world where they hate themselves. And I wish that low self esteem could be eliminated as an issue altogether.
