Do you ever question if you have too little to no self-esteem? Maybe you have found it hard to accept your differences, uniqueness, or have difficulty identifying your strengths?
Do you find yourself to be overly critical of yourself, not feeling “good enough” or always comparing yourself to others? Are you a constant victim of jealousy/envy?
Would you like to offer yourself a confidence boost?
Feelings of failure and disappointment can be hard to run from in today’s culture. In times like these, it is important to place as much focus on your self-esteem, mental health, and give yourself the necessary tender loving care that you need and deserve.
What Is Self-Esteem?
The sense of confidence and self-worth which a person has is psychologically termed as self-esteem. In other words, you can explain self-esteem as the extent to which an individual values themselves.
A combination of beliefs, emotions, appearance, and behavior plays a vital role in building a solid self-esteem foundation. The two most prominent extremes of self-esteem are termed as high or low. In many cases, situations play a central role in determining just how much a person feeling is esteemed about themselves. A healthy amount of self-esteem is all about establishing a certain sense of security in your own capabilities and potential. It also helps you in accepting the appreciation of others as well as in coping with life’s challenges and stressors more effectively.
So how do you know for sure if you have low self-esteem?
Low self-esteem is a personality plague, holding you back from being your best self possible. Not only does a lack of confidence dictate self-disapprovals but also promote false, negative perceptions about yourself. Some warning signs you may be struggling with low self-esteem are as follows:
- Having a hard time accepting criticism, even if it is constructive
- Possess a tendency for self-destructive and self-sabotaging behaviors
- Avoiding reality
- Isolating from peers, social events, and opportunities
- Depression, anxiety, panic attacks and social anxiety
- Feelings of shame, indecisiveness, worthlessness, and pessimism
- Hypercritical of self
The “ups and downs” in self-confidence are usually due to changes in circumstances. However, if you constantly find yourself struggling with any of the above signs or find yourself missing out on the unique opportunities life has to offer, it may be time to consider self-esteem focused therapy. Those who suffer from a lack of personal self-worth and sense of confidence can benefit from therapy . Taking the time to get support in exploring your strengths, identifying overlooked successes, and exploring your overall potential are all critical steps in boosting your self-esteem and confidence.
The Imposter Syndrome
People who suffer from a lack of self-esteem often resort to feeling the need to put on a fake façade to cover what they believe to be lacking. This so-called “imposter syndrome” works as a temporary band-aid for those who are afraid or incapable of acknowledging their success, potential and capabilities. As a result, this state can leave us facing many problems including procrastination, competition, and the unrealistic desire for perfectionism. Brightside Therapy’s Self-Esteem Counseling can offer you the personality pick-me-up it needs and guide you in your journey to building the self-confidence makeover you are capable of achieving.
Cultivate Self-Love and Compassion
Life does not stop for anyone. The need of the hour is to let go of toxic traits and work on your self-esteem. Whether you are sitting in a small family circle or taking an important job interview, self-esteem can either make or break you in every kind of situation. A healthy level of self-esteem will help you in developing the much-needed assertiveness in your personality so that you can accomplish the goals you have for yourself and to take advantage of the opportunities life has to offer you. Our goal is to help you increase your self-esteem so you can confidently live the life in which you truly deserve.
Self-love is the buzz of present-age lifestyle experts. Despite the frequency at which this world is used in different situations every day, only a handful of people are familiar with how it feels and what it means. There is no doubt that the most critical relationship which you have in your life is the one with yourself. In other words, a minor inconvenience like low self-esteem, can cause a rift with the connection you have with yourself. This can go a long in disturbing the rest of the relationships you have in your life.
