What are the signs you have low self-esteem?

Your sense of self-worth is built on your beliefs about yourself, your emotions and behaviours. Self-esteem is not being assertive and confident all the time, it’s about the way you take your own mistakes and failure and handle life challenges.

Checked Most Of The Boxes? This Is How You Can Build Yourself UP

It takes some time to unlearn what you have learned in all previous years and re-build self-esteem. You need to stop your negative self-talk and start thinking of yourself in a more positive way. If you put your self-esteem on a scale from 0 to 100 where you are going to be? Nobody has zero self-esteem. You have it, you just have to build up on your strengths. 

You need to build better boundaries, learn to ask for what you need and say ‘no’ without coming across as ‘mean’. You need to rebuild trust to people, because if you are closed off from bad things you are closed from the good things as well. 

Talk to us, we have vast experience helping people getting a better sense of themselves, supporting them to see past experiences in a different way. We will help you to learn how to regulate better your emotional reactions.
