Self-Esteem

This is about my Self-Esteem

My Self-Esteem

I have a good/bad self esteem I don't fear being tossed away from other people I sometimes go out of my way to attend the approval of others.If I was rejected by other people it would not shatter my self image, but it could lead to self doubt,discouragement, and humiliation.if I don't fully respect and approve of myself,i will project an image to others that says i am not worthy, i am not good enough for you which can result in the very rejection i fear.

The Affect of low self-esteem

When negative influences and thoughts are prevalent generated either from within ourselves or through others it adversely affects the way we feel about ourselves. It also affects the experiences we have in our lives.Over time this can lead to low self-esteem which can reduce the quality of a person’s life in many different ways. Unchecked, low self-esteem may even lead to mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, sometimes with tragic results.It can also be attributed to ongoing stressful life events like relationship breakdowns; financial troubles; poor treatment from a partner, parent or carer; being bullied; or being in an abusive relationship.our lives are full of challenges and triumphs, of ups and downs. In today’s world we are only too aware there are many stressors that can cause us to doubt ourselves. And, as doubt creeps into our minds it become mantras that become harder and harder to dismiss.When it does go wrong, our failing (low) self-esteem can get us to make self-destructive decisions such as tolerating mistreatment or harming ourselves by using drugs, becoming promiscuous, developing eating disorders or indulging in cosmetic surgery, or harming others bullying, cheating in an effort either to make others love us or to numb us to the pain of our own worthlessness. http://psychcentral.com/blog/archives/2014/03/01/how-does-low-self-esteem-negatively-affect-you/
