Reasons For Self-Esteem

What is Self-Esteem
Reasons for Low Self-Esteem
Girls can have low self-esteem because of failure. An example would be Failing a big test or losing a big sports game. Then you might just start expecting failure and when it does happen you will be like “I saw that coming” or “yup I failed, again”. You will just say it because you failed.(How)
Rejection can cause a big impact on self-esteem. It does because you might get rejected by a crush or a loved one. If it's a family member or loved one it will hurt even more because you might feel like you have no one to turn to.(How)
Another reason for self-esteem is body image. Body image is like saying “I’m too fat” or “I’m not skinny enough!” Girls who think they are overweight are more likely to commit suicide. They might do that because of their size.(Why)
To gain self-esteem you have to realize you have a self-esteem problem. Like ask your friends and see what they think. And if you see you have a self-esteem problem try to figure out why it there. ASk yourself is it your friends, school, or is it your family? It could be something else like a relationship.
But gaining self-esteem takes time. If you have a person helping you gain self-esteem they can affect how long it takes. If you have someone who really care it might go faster than someone who really doesn’t care.(How)
Girls and Self-Esteem
Girls can have low self-esteem because of fake beauty standards set by magazines. Girls think they have to look like girls in magazines. But the most important thing is you don't have to look like them. You are your own person.(Media)
Appearance. Appearance can really affect someone's self-esteem if they think aren’t pretty enough. But some people's appearance matters more to them than other people. Like me i don't really care what people think of how I look. I like how I look.(How)Some people let low self-esteem run their life. So they don't try new things. They might not even hang out with friends.
I chose Charlie Brown because in this image he starts with hope and at the end loses it all.
I chose this picture because to me she looks like she lost hope.
I chose this picture because you can tell that she's not happy but yet she puts on a fake smile.
