Self-esteem is how you feel about yourself and how you value yourself.
Self-esteem has a profound impact on the choices you make since it also determines what you consider yourself capable and worthy of doing. Without a proper amount of self-valuing, we don’t pursue meaningful activities. Instead, we get stuck in a cycle of de-valuing ourselves and not doing anything meaningful to boost our sense of self-worth.
Ask yourself these questions:
Do authority figures in my life make me feel like I’m worthless?
Do I believe that whatever I do isn’t valued?
Do I feel unnoticed?
Do I trust my own opinions?
Which of the questions resonate most with your situation?
