What is Low Self-Esteem?

Self-esteem is one’s perception of oneself. Not valuing oneself and having a low opinion of yourself are hallmarks of low self-esteem. Having low self-esteem causes people to not just feel worthless, but also more likely to then be exploited by others.

Chronic low self-esteem can pave the way for many mental health problems and social issues. Self-esteem should not be confused with feelings of grandiosity; self-esteem is about how you treat yourself, and thus by extension, how others treat you. It is about believing in yourself, having a healthy amount of love for yourself, and thinking of yourself as a worthy person.

What Are the Signs of Low Self-Esteem?

Some of the low self-esteem signs are as follows:

Comparison

A characteristic and outcome of low self-esteem is negative social comparison. People then constantly compare themselves to others and feel low in comparison.

Low Confidence

A characteristic of low self-esteem is not having faith in your abilities and thus having low confidence levels.

Lack of Agency

Another one of low self-esteem symptoms is feeling a lack of control over what happens in your life. This lack of agency is especially among the signs of low self-esteem in a woman.

Lack of Faith in Oneself

Constantly doubting yourself is a side-effect of having low self-worth. Such people also worry a lot when given responsibility.

Inability to Voice Yourself

People with low self-esteem have trouble voicing their minds and needs.

Fear

Amongst the symptoms of low self-esteem is having low faith in yourself, which then causes people to be in a constant state of fear. It can also then make them jaded.

Trouble Accepting Compliments

Low self-esteem causes people to be wary of compliments.

Imposter Syndrome

Even when the achievements are very real, low self-esteem causes people to experience imposter syndrome.

Hate For Oneself

Another sign of and risk of low self-esteem is hatred for oneself.

Hopelessness

A lack of faith in your abilities can also make people hopeless about themselves.

People Pleasing

Those with low self-esteem also tend to have a habit of people-pleasing.

Why Do I Have Low Self-Esteem?

There are different causes of low self-esteem. Some include:

Childhood

Your nurturing environment has a profound impact on your well-being. When you are told you are inferior, unaccomplished, ugly, and not smart, by your peers, family, teachers, parents, etc. in your childhood, it is then more likely that you associate such negative thoughts about yourself. It then causes low self-esteem. It is also the reason low self-esteem in adolescence is more common.

Experience of School

Your experience of school can be among the causes of low self-esteem. If you were bullied, had poor academic performance, or generally struggled in school, your risk of low self-esteem is higher.

Mental Health Issues

People with certain mental health issues like anxiety can also develop low self-worth.

Trauma and Abuse

Some forms of trauma and abuse can also lead to low self-esteem. There is a link between low self-esteem and domestic violence. The trend of victim blaming certainly does not help.

How Does Low Self-Esteem Affect a Person?

Low self-esteem has a grave impact on one’s life. It can lead to:

Exploitation

People can tell when a person has low self-esteem, and they then exploit it to get what they want. It can then lead to the person with low self-esteem doing all the work, not appreciating what they do, always overcompensating, etc.

People Pleasing

Low self-esteem is also linked to people’s pleasing.

Constant Worry

Another risk of low self-esteem is increased levels of worry and thus anxiety. Naturally, when you do not consider yourself to be capable, you then doubt everything that you do.

Low Self Esteem and Relationships

Low self-esteem can put a person in a vulnerable spot in a relationship. Alongside greater chances of abuse, exploitation, and even gaslighting, low self-esteem also causes one to feel unlovable. They then take any sort of treatment their partner gives them.

In romantic partnerships, low self-esteem can also lead to poor sexual performance. Low self-esteem and domestic violence are also linked.

Is Low Self-Esteem a Character Trait?

Low self-esteem can be considered a character, rather, than a personality trait. As self-perception affects the way you perceive yourself, your viewpoints, your behavior, your confidence, and even your success levels, it is an important dimension of your personality and life.

Is Low Self Esteem Genetic?

Your genetics can cause you to develop low self-esteem. It is because most psychological issues do have a basis in genetics. But your physical appearance, which is determined by your genetics, also plays a pivotal role in your self-esteem levels.

How to Deal With and Get Rid of Low Self-Esteem?

Learning how to overcome low self-esteem is important, as low self-worth has a grave impact on your quality of life. Some helpful solutions to low self-esteem include:

Break the Cycle of Negativity

Recognizing the negative thought process is important for breaking the chain of low self-esteem. So, when you start to think bad thoughts about yourself, rationalize them. Stop cognitive distortions.

Be Kinder to Yourself

Just as you find good in others, and cut them slack, offer yourself the same level of kindness as well.

Positive Self-Talk

Try to talk to yourself in a more positive light. Focus on your strengths. Challenge every negative thought with a positive one.

Accept Yourself

Another way to overcome low self-esteem is by learning to accept yourself. You do not have to be perfect. You should not compare yourself to others. Learn to value yourself first, the world will follow.

Get Therapy

A therapist can also help you overcome low self-esteem and improve your sense of self. The mental health psychologist at Fitcy Health can also help you create a low self-esteem care plan, which can improve your quality of life.
