Low Self-Esteem Treatment
Low self-esteem is not the same thing as being humble or modest. People who are modest or humble still basically feel good about themselves and feel that they are worthwhile. Do you wonder if you have the kind of low self-esteem that might benefit from treatment? Have a look at the items on the list below:
Signs you may be suffering from Low Self Esteem:
- You believe that you are undeserving and unworthy.
- if someone praises you, you dismiss it rather than feel good about the complement.
- You let people take advantage of you because you don’t think that you deserve better.
- You are overly sensitive to criticism or disapproval.
- You are excessively eager to please others.
- You don’t feel that you have the right to relax and enjoy yourself.
- You push yourself to be a perfectionist because you are driven by a fear of failure.
- You don’t take proper care of yourself. You drink excessively or use drugs.
No one is born with low self-esteem and it is not your fault if you have it. Low self-esteem is a consequence of abuse, neglect, or trauma when we are young. Low self-esteem, if untreated, can lead to depression, anxiety problems, failed relationships, and alcohol or drug problems.
