Low Self-Esteem

What is low self-esteem?

Self-esteem is the confidence you have in your own worth or abilities. It develops from our experiences and relationships from birth. Low self-esteem tends to occur as a result of negative experiences and troubled relationships, whereas good experiences and strong bonds raise it. No single event or person determines your level of self-esteem. It develops over time and can change with time and events.

If you have low self-esteem, you look at yourself and your abilities in a negative light, which impacts on your day-to-day life.
