Raising Low Self-Esteem

Self-esteem is the opinion we have about ourselves and our capabilities. It is estimated that 85% of people suffer from some degree of low self-esteem but are unable to recognize it. Most importantly, everyone will likely experience feelings related to low self-esteem at some point in their life. Lacking confidence and feeling poorly about your self-image is completely normal and is often a side effect of our experiences and society's expectations. However, that does not mean that we have to endure such negative feelings about ourselves or that it cannot be changed for the better.

If you notice that you are struggling with negative feelings about your worth, capabilities or other factors in your life, you can consider these tips for building back your confidence.

  • Build positive relationships: a good support system will help build up your confidence instead of tearing you down.

  • Challenge your negative beliefs: Recognize the negative thoughts you have about yourself, think about facts that contradict that thought and create solutions to remedy them.

  • Build your boundaries and maintain them: it can be easy to say yes to everything when you have low self-esteem. By sticking to your boundaries you will be able to build more confidence and respect for yourself as a person.
