The signs of low self esteem and causes

Low self-esteem, by itself, is not a diagnosis, however, it can seriously overshadow a person's life. In my opinion, self-esteem is one of the most important parameters of a personality, since it is it that largely determines a person's success in various spheres of life and his satisfaction with his achievements.

Adequate positive self-esteem is a guarantee of self-esteem, self-confidence, desire to act and achieve goals. At the same time, defeats, even if they do happen, do not have a destructive effect, a person does not cease to respect himself, does not give up, but, on the contrary, seeks to correct the mistake.

During consultations, it is often found out that behind the failures of a person in work, in personal life and in other areas is precisely a negative assessment of oneself, self-doubt.

Here are the main low self esteem signs:

  • The habit of comparing yourself to others (not for the better for yourself).
  • Feelings of self-pity. Frequent mental replay of unfortunate life moments and feeling powerless.
  • The attitude of other people towards you. A person who does not respect himself is unlikely to command respect from others. Moreover, such a person may unconsciously choose people who will deliberately treat him badly, thereby confirming a negative attitude.
  • Problematic interpersonal relationships. A person may believe that there is simply nothing to love him for, doubts his significance, at the same time, passionately desire to be loved. Fear of making new acquaintances and relationships, fear of opening up, showing oneself, trying on fake masks.
  • Concern about the opinion of others. It often happens that the external ostentatious side, the "image" of a person comes to the fore in order to hide the real personality. Fear of dishonor, shyness.
  • Postponing difficult cases on the back burner. The fear of not coping, making a mistake, and getting bad marks from others paralyzes a person with low self-esteem.
  • Increased anxiety. In difficult situations, psychosomatic symptoms can be observed, such as: increased sweating, hand tremors, increased heart rate, facial flushing, etc.
  • The inability to respond with a refusal, even if it is contrary to their own beliefs and values. Behind this lies the desire to please, to get approval.
  • Inadequate response to criticism, increased vulnerability. 
  • Outward signs: stoop, stiffness of movements, "closed" postures, etc.
