Self-esteem describes our sense of self-worth and is a reflection of how we perceive and view ourselves. It plays a significant role in our mental processing because it impacts our sense of wellbeing and what we deem to be successful in our life. For individuals with a low self-esteem, it is easy for them to fall victim to disregarding of their own opinions, needs and thoughts.
With difficulty navigating through the negative thought intrusions, such as feelings of worthlessness and being unwanted, this development of negative self-esteem can create a dulled outlook on life. Some common signs of low self-esteem include:
- Social withdrawal
- Inability to trust
- Overly worried
- Excessive overthinking
- Feelings of incompetence
