What is Self-Esteem?
Self-esteem refers to the way you think about yourself. When your self-esteem is healthy, you feel good about yourself. You are more resilient and capable of handling the ups-and-downs of life. Positive self-esteem can enhance your personal, academic, and professional success and improve your self-image.
Your self-esteem develops throughout your lifetime. Both positive and negative messages from family, peers, teachers, and the media can affect the way you see yourself as can life-altering events, such as serious illness, divorce, or deaths in the family. When you internalize negative messages, they can begin to affect the way you see yourself and change how you view the world.
While low self-esteem is not a medical diagnosis, it can have specific signs or symptoms. People with low self-esteem often struggle with depression and anxiety, and they may be more prone to perfectionism, self-doubt, and worry or rumination. They can be highly sensitive to criticism and prone to withdrawing from social engagements or professional opportunities. Some may even have physical symptoms, such as headaches and fatigue.
Self-hypnosis for self-esteem can help you overcome deeply rooted confidence and self-image issues and nurture the positivity you need to shine.
