Low Self Esteem

Low Self Esteem make people feel inferior and generate negative emotions, push people to avoid challenges, situations and hinder growth, potential and productivity.


  • Early Childhood Experiences:

Experiences of abuse, neglect or bullying at a young age powerfully shape self-esteem. A child who goes through these traumatic experiences can form the belief that they are a bad person who deserved this treatment.

  • Expectations Of Others;

If you feel that you failed to meet the expectations of others, this can maintain the belief that you are a failure. It's important to remember that these expectations may not have been realistic in the first place.

  • Peer Groups:

During adolescence, the pressure to fit in is very high. Since this is a time where your identity is forming, not fitting in or feeling left out can impact self-esteem.

  • Lack Of Warmth Or Love:

Although negative traumatic experiences play a large role in low self-esteem, it is possible that not having positive experiences can also play a role. If you don't receive affection or encouragement, especially at a young age, it is possible to form the belief that you are not good enough.
