self esteem and low confidence

While it's perfectly normal for you or a loved one to be somewhat preoccupied with themselves, over concern about the flaws could be a sign of low self-esteem. If yours or a loved one's self-esteem seems low and is constantly talking about what he/she perceives to be wrong with themselves, it's a clear indication that they are lacking self-confidence and there's a lot you can do to improve self-image. 

Are there some other tell-tale signs you can easily recognize? There are. People with low self-esteem, or lacking in self-confidence, will usually exhibit certain verbal and non-verbal behaviour which points to their insecurity-clues you can learn to recognize and use to try to help yourself or a loved one.

There are signs of low self-esteem that you can look for in other people and yourself:

- Low expectations about life 

- Trouble in making a judgment

- Trouble putting your own needs first

- Reluctance to challenges

- Constantly worrying 

- Being excessively hard on yourself

- Pessimism

Causes- What Leads to Low Self-Esteem?

Low self-esteem may come from parents if they have low self-esteem or are too hard on you. It may come from your being sensitive to "jerks" at school or in society in general.

Low self-esteem often comes, however, from not analyzing your beliefs-that is, not doing the critical thinking that was mentioned earlier. What you'll discover with your critical thinking is that you have beliefs or attitudes that are delusional, that is, they are blocking you from having high self-esteem. 

A reason that many people don't engage in critical thinking about themselves is that they are afraid of what they will find. They are afraid that they won't like themselves if they look at themselves closely. This fear is a huge obstacle to having healthy self-esteem, however. If that sounds like you, you'll want to lose that fear.

Counselling for Low Self-Esteem- is it effective?   

Expert counselling and psychotherapy can help people (who want to) to learn how to overcome their low opinion of themselves and live a more fulfilling life. Therapy for self esteem, counselling for low self-esteem can help people to change unhelpful beliefs about themselves, and change their unconfident self-limiting behaviour.

In working with low self-esteem, counsellors can help people to develop balanced and encouraging beliefs about themselves and their lives. Therapist for self-esteem issues can gently encourage to try out new and different ways of doing things. It can be very helpful to learn life-skills such as Assertiveness and Non-Violent Communication, which enable people to express themselves constructively. 

Effective counselling can encourage people to try out new beliefs and skills, with 'baby-steps' at first, and then in bigger ways in significant areas of their lives. 

Experienced counsellors can 'tune-in' to the unique factors that will help each person find the most effective (and safest) ways of overcoming their low estimation of themselves. This can free people to be more able to build lives that reflect a truer picture of themselves, their talents and their desires. 

So, a great way to cultivate higher self-esteem is to start questioning your beliefs, the extent of your knowledge, the scope of your talents, or your usual way of doing things. Healthy self-esteem can handle self-inquiries like this. Learn to be tough on yourself without beating yourself down or hating yourself. "Keep it real". If you have healthy self-esteem, you can do that.For more information about how to overcome low self-esteem, please do contact us @+91 97414 76476 or visit Cadabam’s Hospitals.
