When the term “self-esteem” is used in a psychological context, it refers to a person’s general sense of self-worth or just how he values himself.
What is self-esteem?
Self-esteem involves a mixture of beliefs about the self, including emotions, behaviour and appearance. Self-esteem is obedient and can be lifted through treatment.
Many people find that their respect for themselves varies according to the situation, or even day after day. Although people are often described as having “high” or “low” self-esteem, many people find that their self-respect varies according to the situation, or even day after day. If you are experiencing these types of “ups and downs,” please be aware that you are not alone. Therapy is an excellent way to gain an understanding of why you are getting these high levels and bottoms, as well as helping to make sure you are more positive and feel better prepared to deal with challenges and disappointments. Self-esteem is not about feeling great all the time. Your self-respect is about feeling safe so you can deal with the problems of life and you deserve to experience love and acceptance from others as well as from yourself.
People with little self-esteem have a negative outlook, are unhappy with themselves and are unable to look beyond their boundaries and problems. People with impaired self-esteem can sometimes overreact when they are criticised, engage in self-sabotage and self-destructive behaviour, and sacrifice their identity to suit them. Also, individuals with low intrinsic value may avoid actual and potentially uncomfortable situations. Moreover, those who suffer from low self-esteem often criticise themselves and others.
The impact of low self-esteem varies from person to person, but may include pessimism, confusion, or a tendency to engage in manic activities, and focus on individual failures, weaknesses, and setbacks. Also, an individual may put himself or a joke in a joke or dangerous manner. In interacting with other people, a self-confident person may engage in angry or aggressive behaviour and blame others for their situation.
At Love Life Counselling we offer self-esteem therapy. There are steps that can be taken to improve self-esteem. One of the actions that can be taken is to practice positive self-talk. In addition, it is useful to set realistic goals for yourself and highlight the positive aspects of your life. It is also helpful if you are dealing with the social support network, your family members, friends and others who are close to you. Another way to improve self-esteem is to contribute something and bring it back to your community. This can be as simple as doing something nice to someone else or volunteering in a local soup kitchen. Also, improving self-esteem can be achieved by improving the situation, which means creating a specialised skill that excels in it.
