What is self - esteem? It is our opinion about ourselves, how we see ourselves. When our self-esteem is low, we tend to see ourselves and our life in a more negative and critical light. We also feel less able to take on the challenges that life throws at us. Having the constant voice in your head telling you that you're not good enough is EXHAUSTING. Yet, you continue to let it control your mood, your day, your life.
Low self - esteem usually comes from our experiences in childhood. Maybe you were (or are currently) bullied in school or maybe you or someone in your family set very high expectations for yourself to the point where you felt not good enough most days. Low self - esteem can lead to unhealthy coping behaviors such as substance use and drug addiction.
Let me fill you in on something - overcoming low self - esteem is TOTALLY possible. With the proper coping skills, you will be living your life with confidence and self LOVE.
