Self-Esteem and Confidence

Living with low self-esteem affects your happiness and satisfaction, limits your options and behaviour in relationships, and may block your progress in work and career. Low self-esteem is essentially viewing yourself in a negative way. You may have a history of low confidence, shyness, insecurity, or anxiety. Sometimes harsh, or critical parenting could lead to low self-esteem as a child and well into adulthood. Or perhaps a negative life event has worn away your confidence.

Low self-esteem is a common problem. But humans are endlessly resourceful. There is no need to live with it when treatment can make such a difference. No matter how your low self-esteem came to be, you do not need to see this as how you must be throughout life. With help and guidance, it is very possible for you to learn new strategies and build a happier, more secure future where confidence and positive feelings are dominant.

Psychological counselling can help you tackle this problem. At Life Resolutions Doncaster we can help you learn to be more assertive in a way that feels natural to you, and also how to unblock the blocks that have kept your self-esteem low.

You may realise having elements of low self-esteem particularly when you back down from an argument just to please the other person, must be done up to the ‘T’ before leaving the house, positive feedback is never taken, decisions are just too hard to make, you keep quiet in groups so they don’t think your stupid or because you don’t have anything important or worthwhile to say, or you more often than not you compare yourself to others.

This is the time to become more confident in yourself and stand up for what you believe in. Call our Client Services Team on 1300 668 256 and book in an appointment to start being more like the YOU, you want to be!

Some people are naturally shy and are more comfortable when they’re alone. They’re usually the ones who are hesitant in making new friends. You might be one of them – you might be an introvert. However, if your shyness is becoming too overwhelming that your actions are already limited, you might have issues with your self-esteem. Yes, you might be shy of new people, but there are more pressing risks involved when you have low self-esteem. If you think your self-esteem needs improvement, Our Life Resolutions Doncaster practice can help you.

What is the importance of having Self-Esteem?

Your self-esteem can become the reason why you behave and think in a certain way. When you have high self-esteem, your confidence is boosted. With this, you can do more things without any hesitations. Similarly, when you have low self-esteem, your actions are also limited because you’re too self-conscious – this alone can bring a lot of difficulties in your life.

What are signs of Low Self-Esteem?

Determining if you have low self-esteem can be tricky sometimes. The signs of being an introvert and having low self-esteem are similar. Thus, many heed the signs of the latter. But if you fear you have low self-esteem, you might want to look at these signs:

  • You check your phone even when you’re in a situation full of people
  • You’d rather back down during an agreement just to please a person
  • You can’t leave the house without make-up
  • You can’t take criticism positively
  • You’d rather shut up than contribute opinions to a group
  • You can’t make simple decision on your own
  • You always compare yourself to others
  • You give up easily
