Low Self-esteem

Low Self-esteem

When an individual has low self-esteem they may not like themselves or they may feel chronically inadequate. This problem can occur even when the person is admired and loved by those around them.

This is because low self-esteem is often a result of a difficult childhood, and not a reflection of the person’s ability or qualities.

When a parent is critical or harsh, or emotionally unavailable, low self-esteem can be common. In other cases, chronic teasing from peers, especially at a young age, can lower self-esteem.

Resolving childhood pain and mistreatment by clearing and healing painful memories can help individuals see themselves in a more positive light. It is also helpful to teach individuals to nurture themselves and be as kind to themselves as they are to others. Low self-esteem is very treatable with the right counseling.
