It surprises me how many people either don’t really know how to define self-esteem or that deem themselves to have healthy self-esteem, when the evidence suggests otherwise.
I for one have spent most of my life struggling with low self-esteem, without even knowing or understanding what it was or how it has had a huge impact on my life.
So…what is self-esteem?
Simply put…self-esteem is how we perceive ourselves. It is your overall sense of value or worth.
As a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Life Coach the majority of my clients, no matter what they come for, are struggling with low self-esteem and this can affect all areas of their lives, including: relationships; career; mental and physical health; potential and happiness. Ask yourself the following questions, to determine your level of self-esteem: Do you like yourself as a person? Do you feel good enough just as you are? Can you easily identify your strengths? Are you able to try new or challenging things? Can you accept it when you make mistakes? Do you believe you deserve to be happy? Are you kind to yourself? Do you put yourself first? Can you make decisions easily? Can you assert yourself in situations you need to? Can you comfortably say no to people? If you answered ‘yes’to the majority of these statements, then congratulations…you have a healthy level of self-esteem. However, if you answered many with ‘no’, then you may be struggling with low self-esteem. The good news is… that self esteem isn’t fixed. You can change it! I am evidence of that. I have gone from living with debilitating low self-esteem, to finally learning my worth and being the best version of myself. You can do it too! So why do you have low self-esteem? There are various factors which may influence your level of self-esteem, for example: Genetics and personality type Childhood and various life experiences Social circumstances Family, peers and significant relationships
This list certainly isn’t exhaustive. So, what can you do to improve your self-esteem?
