Confidence & Self-Esteem

Self-esteem is the way you feel about yourself 

Lots of things can lower our self-esteem, such as a relationship break-up, not getting the job you wanted or putting on weight. None of these things makes us worth less, but it can feel that way.

Most people think that self esteem means self-confidence, and although self-confidence is related, it’s not the same. ‘Esteem’ actually comes from a latin word that means to estimate – how you estimate yourself. Low self esteem is quite common in today’s society and may also lead to feeling depressed.

Symptoms may include

  • feeling tired a lot of the time
  • having little motivation to get things done
  • feeling bored with life and feeling you don’t have much to look forward to
  • thinking a lot about yourself and wishing your life was better
  • thinking negatively about your abilities and possible opportunities
  • feeling like a failure or feeling hopeless and depressed

There are many strategies and techniques available to build self-esteem and self-confidence
