We would all love to unlock the key to low self esteem
Where does low self-esteem come from? Low self-esteem is from lack of confidence. It usually stems from childhood or from bad school experiences. If as a child you processed certain experiences in a negative way , e.g. being bullied at school, that may create a negative image. feeling like a failure with your studies, being unpopular , being ridiculed, being told by siblings or parents that you are stupid or fat, this may have lasting problems with negative self-belief .
Yes, these are all negative situation, but it is how you process it internally , how you handle the problem and how you see yourself through it and not take it personally .
Your home life is super important and by the age of 5, when self-esteem is established in a child, it poses a huge responsibility from the adults who surround this child to get it right !
The fact your adult life will be affected and have such a huge impact on your life, the places you go , the choices you make , the job you have , the partner you have.
If low self-esteem develops in childhood , its paramount to tread carefully and nurture your child, build your child up , fill them with confidence and teach them to value themselves at such an important development time in their lives. A careless comment could have huge implications later , as I explained before, children will process in a different way to an adult and carry the negative self-image through to adulthood. I see so many clients with the same issue . Low self-esteem.
Trauma is another factor leading to low self-esteem . If an individual faces trauma , such as emotional or physical abuse and they do not see a professional to work through it .
We as adults have such a massive responsibility to our young and its time we all educated ourselves and took the job seriously !!! .
