What is self-esteem

Self-esteem is the perception we have of ourselves, both in our physical and in our psychological and social environment. This includes the set of perceptions, thoughts, judgments and affections that we have developed throughout our lives and have acquired through learning with our environment.


Characteristics of people with low self-esteem

People with low self-esteem are characterized by:

  • They are indecisive: they have difficulty making decisions and are afraid of making mistakes.
  • Anxiety and nervousness: this leads them to avoid situations that generate anxiety and fear.
  • They underestimate themselves: they tend to underestimate their own capacities, talents and abilities; instead, they see those of others in an exaggerated or unrealistic way.
  • Passivity: people with low self-esteem often avoid taking the initiative.
  • Dissatisfaction: they are almost never satisfied with what they do or what they are, and this generates a lot of insecurity and anxiety.
  • Pessimism: they believe that what they do will always go wrong.
  • Lack of control: they feel they have no control over their own lives and this causes them anguish and confusion.
  • They do not accept criticism: they have difficulty accepting that other people criticize their way of being or acting.

People most vulnerable to low self-esteem

For example, teenage girls between the ages of 9 and 17 are a particularly vulnerable group to suffer from depression and low self-esteem.
