right attitude to be successful. Low self-esteem is a thinking disorder where one has a low
opinion of oneself (either
consciously or not). Also having
feelings of being 'worthless'
can contribute. Causes Pros Cons Low Self-Esteem Cons Causes Pros
Anger-anger is a normal emotion, but one that gets distorted when you have low self-esteem. When you don’t think highly of yourself, you start to believe your own thoughts and feelings aren’t important to others. Repressed hurt and anger can build up, so something seemingly small can trigger outbursts of fury. Self-hate- loathing your thoughts and actions is a classic sign of low self-esteem. Self-hate is characterized by feelings of anger and frustration about who you are and an inability to forgive yourself for even the smallest of mistakes. Perfectionism -The drive to be perfect is one of the more destructive aspects of low self-esteem. A perfectionist is someone who lives with a constant sense of failure because their achievements, no matter how impressive, don’t ever feel quite good enough. Poor body image- a negative body image is often linked to low self-esteem and vice versa. This means it can affect everything from how you behave in relationships to how you project yourself at work. Feeling worthless- we all doubt our ability in certain areas of our lives, but a deep-rooted sense of worthlessness comes from believing that somehow we are not as valuable as others. If this sounds familiar, it’s important to understand that feeling worthy isn’t something given to us by others, but something we have to build ourselves.
Oversensitivity- being too sensitive is one of the more painful aspects of low self-esteem. Whether you’re angered by criticism or literally feel demolished by any comment that’s directed at you, it’s important to desensitize yourself. Fear and anxiety- fear and a belief that you are powerless to change anything in your world are irrefutably linked to low self-esteem. People pleasing- one of the biggest problems with low self-esteem is feeling you have to please others so that they like, love and respect you. As a result many people-pleasers end up feeling aggrieved and used. •90% of all women want to change at least one aspect of their physical appearance.
•57% of rock music videos portray women as a sex object, a victim, as unintelligent, or in a condescending way.
•57% of women are targeted for workplace bullying.
•47% of students allow themselves to be hazed prior to coming to college.
•Women are devalued in the workplace, making only 76% of their male peers’ salaries.
•Three-fourths of girls with low self-esteem engage in negative activities, such as disordered eating, bullying, smoking or drinking.
• Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful (up from 2% in 2004)
• Only 11% of girls globally are comfortable using the word beautiful to describe themselves • 72% of girls feel tremendous pressure to be beautiful
• One of the main factors in teen promiscuity is self-esteem. When a teen has little or no self-confidence, he or she will use sex as a means to build confidence.
• More than half (54%) of women globally agree that when it comes to how they look, they are their own worst beauty critic
* More than 90 percent of girls – 15 to 17 years – want to change at least one aspect of their physical appearance, with body weight ranking the highest.
* Girls’ self-esteem peaks when they are 9 years old.
* 9 million teens in America below 15 years are obese, that’s three times more than in 1980. * Obese boys and girls have significantly lower self-esteem than their non-obese peers.
* Up to 12% of teen boys are using unproven supplements and/or steroids.
* 7 in 10 girls believe they are not good enough or do not measure up in some way including their looks, performance in school and relationships.
*80% of 10-year-old girls have dieted. 90% of high school junior and senior women diet regularly. Young girls are more afraid of becoming fat than they are of nuclear war, cancer, or losing their parents.
* The top wish among all girls is for their parents to communicate better with them which includes, more frequent and more open conversations, as well as discussions about what is happening in their own lives. Professional psychotherapy can be very helpful. It can peel back years of hurt and begin a new work towards a rewarding life. Sometimes spiritual counseling helps the best, like a pastor, a spiritual counselor, or a priest, because belief in God has a deep meaning of many people. A rich spiritual life has a huge and positive effect on how someone views him or herself. Professional therapy would be the best for you. Change it!:) Healthy Level-
People with a healthy level of self-esteem are humble and recognize all people’s worth. They’re also realistic. Those with good self-esteem are able to realistically and honestly evaluate their strengths, weaknesses, and potential.
“Love is a choice and a commitment that we make each day, despite our imperfections,” -Glenn R. Schiraldi Sometimes negative beliefs about yourself are caused by experiences later in life as well, such as workplace bullying or intimidation, abusive relationships, persistent stress, hardship, or traumatic events. The beliefs you have of yourself you often see as fact, even though they're really only opinions. They are based on the experiences you've had in life, and the messages that those experiences gave you about the kind of person you are. If you had negative experiences, your beliefs about yourself are likely to be negative too.
As already stated the experiences that affect your self-esteem usually happen early in life. Everything (what you saw, heard and experienced in childhood, in your family, in the wider community and at school ) will have influenced the way you see yourself. Examples of early experiences that could lead to your thinking badly of yourself include:
systematic punishment, neglect or abuse
failing to meet parental standards
failing to meet peer-group standards
being on the receiving end of other people's stress or distress.
belonging to a family or social group that other people are prejudiced towards
an absence of praise, warmth, affection or interest
being the odd one out, at home or at school. I can't imagine there being
any pros to having low
self-esteem. Having low
self-esteem is basically
having low self worth.
It is an unhealthy mind set. As we grow up the things important people say to us stick with us. We may criticize ourselves in their sharp tones, and make the same comparisons with other people that they did. Our experiences create a foundation for general conclusions about ourselves (judgements about ourselves as people.) These conclusions are the negative view of the self that lies at the heart of low self-esteem. It is usually biased and inaccurate, because it is based on a child's-eye view. It is likely to be formed on the basis of misunderstandings about experiences, because you had no adult knowledge with which to understand properly what was going on. Although these beliefs may be unhelpful or outdated now, they come from a time when they made perfect sense, given what you were experiencing then. No one can make you feel inferior without your own consent.
-Eleanor Roosevelt You can serve another by way of job or friendship. But there is no need to be subservient. Stand tall and be counted. Count yourself for you do count.
You are important.

Are you self sufficient? At times you will need help and assistance but, at the end of the day, you have to live by your choices, decisions or actions. You cannot blame another.
Build your life on firm, solid foundations. You would not build/live in a house built on quicksand. Why expect to have a good and stable life if there is turmoil at the base of things. Do something about it. Seek help.

10.You will be better at using to improve yourself. Because your self-image is strong, being criticized is no longer an emotionally crippling event. You can objectively listen to the criticism and decide if there is any truth to it or not. If there is, you can use that truth to improve yourself. 1. more resilient to life’s
difficulties (less likely to
give in to despair or defeat.) 2. More confident in your abilities,
