Self esteem issues can be challenging to deal with. It can be a very unpleasant feeling to have when you realize that someone doesn’t think highly of you. It may be because of something you did or are doing. It could also be due to something that happened years ago in your life that is still haunting you. Whatever the cause, self-esteem issues need to be addressed and fixed as soon as possible.

An Overview

People who have self-esteem issues usually have low self confidence and don’t feel good about themselves. They don’t feel worthy of being around people. The reality is that if they had high self esteem then things might have been different. But now they are stuck in a rut and are constantly feeling bad about themselves and this creates negative self talk about their appearance, flaws, and so on.

So how do you deal with self-esteem issues? Well, firstly you need to understand what causes them. This means you need to change your behavior in order to change your self-talk and eventually overcome your self-esteem issues.

Low self confidence and self esteem issues usually stem from one of three sources. One, you may have been abused as a child. Or two, you may have been belittled at school or at work. Or thirdly, you may have been worried about your looks all your life and finally found out you had a physical defect that made you different to other people.

Tough Self Esteem Issues

If you were abused as a child then you will have terrible self esteem issues. To start with you should forgive yourself for this and start to build your self esteem again. To some extent this can be hard to do because you are holding yourself back. But by forgiving yourself and building your self-esteem issues up, slowly but surely, you will find it easier.

Another reason why so many people have self-esteem issues is simply because they don’t like who they are. And this leads to a vicious circle. You feel bad about yourself because you don’t like who you are, so then you start to try and improve yourself. This of course leads to even more self-esteem issues because now people are looking at you differently and you start to have to worry about whether or not you are going to come across as nice.

To get over these self-esteem issues you need to treat them differently. First off you should try and talk to yourself sometimes. Get to know yourself and what is wrong with it. It may take you a while to figure out the exact problem that is affecting your self-esteem issues, but when you have found out you should then talk to someone about it.

Ways To Deal With Stress 

Your family members and friends are a great resource for learning more about self-esteem issues. Don’t be afraid to ask them questions about things that are bothering you. Sometimes talking about things that are bothering us can make us feel better. The more we understand ourselves the easier it becomes to deal with self-esteem issues.

Another way to help deal with self-esteem issues is to participate in some kind of group activity. The problem with self-esteem issues that develop because of having to keep to yourself is that they tend to get worse when we are around other people who are trying to help us. When we are around others, we can see if we are being perceived as good or bad by them. If it turns out that what we are doing is actually making us feel bad we can then change what we are doing to avoid those feelings. The more we participate in group activities such as sports, clubs, classes or church activities the more we will be able to change our self-perception about ourselves.

Final Tip

The last way to help with self-esteem issues is to take a look at the world that we live in. We need to understand that there are many negative elements that can affect us. These negative elements include people who are portrayed as poor, depressed, stupid, useless, ugly, etc. We need to learn to turn these people around so that we can start to build up higher self esteem issues. A great way to do this is to make sure that we surround ourselves with positive individuals who have a positive influence on our lives.


As you can see from the above information self-esteem is something that can affect our life in many different ways. We can either build our self-esteem or we can destroy it. The best thing that we can do is to look at what we are going through and figure out how we can improve our self-esteem. Then we can use these new ideas that we have learned to make our life better and more enjoyable.
