Is it possible to have good self-esteem?

It's very conceivable for someone who excels at something to have low self-esteem. Someone who struggles with a specific task, on the other hand, may have high self-esteem in general. People that have high self-esteem are often optimistic about themselves and their lives. They know what they're good at and what they aren't as good at, but they still feel confident enough in themselves to pursue their dreams.

People with low self-esteem often suffer from one or more of the following disorders: anxiety disorders (such as social anxiety disorder or generalized anxiety disorder), depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or substance use disorders (such as anorexia or bulimia).

Those who struggle with anxiety often feel like they cannot live up to others' expectations. For example, if you fear that people will not like you if you get sick, then you'll try hard not to get sick. This type of behavior can lead to low self-esteem and anxiety about other things as well.

Someone with depression will feel like life is not worth living or they won't want to live anymore. They may think there's no point in trying because nothing good will ever happen to them. This type of thinking can lead to a desire to stop living and attempt suicide.

Some of the various causes of poor self-esteem may include a miserable upbringing in which parents (or other influential persons such as teachers) were harsh. Inadequate academic achievement in school leads to a lack of confidence. Continuously stressful life situations, such as marital breakdowns or financial difficulties, can also adversely affect self-image.

Poor physical health can cause someone to feel bad about themselves. For example, if you're overweight and don't exercise, then this can lead to you feeling bad about yourself. If you have a disease, such as diabetes, then this too can make you feel low on confidence levels.

Lack of social support can also contribute to poor self-esteem. If you're alone most of the time, then it's not surprising that you would feel like nobody loves you. If you're excluded from family gatherings because you have a different religion or culture, then this can lead to a lack of confidence in your ability to fit into a group.

Low self-esteem may have a detrimental impact on almost every aspect of your life, including your relationships, employment, and health. However, you may enhance your self-esteem by following the advice of specific forms of mental health therapy. Consider the following steps, which are based on cognitive behavioral therapy.

1. Analyze the situation. What is the thought pattern behind my low opinion of myself? Make a list of negative thoughts about yourself. Are these thoughts true? If not, how can I change them?

2. Replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Instead of thinking only negative things about yourself, try to think also about your good qualities. Remind yourself that you are not all bad and that others appreciate some of your traits.

3. Change behavior to match your new thought pattern. Do something each day that shows someone you care about him or her? For example, send emails to friends, take walks together, or visit elderly people in nursing homes.

4. Keep working at it. Once you have implemented these strategies into your daily life, work on maintaining their effect. Don't let negative thoughts overpower you again!

5. Look forward, not back. Avoid dwelling on past failures or successes, because these memories will not help you move forward. Focus on what's next, not on what's last.

6. Accept who you are.
