Self-esteem is the evaluation and measurement of how one views his or her self-worth. Self-esteem manifests itself in negative, neutral or positive self-concepts.

Your perception of self-worth (self-esteem), or lack thereof, can be influenced by the either biological, environmental, social, cultural factors or any combination. Our self-esteem; which is personally unique to each or us very closely parallels our success in life. Our own individual level of self-esteem has proven to be the underlying motivation and/or discouragement experienced in daily living.
A healthy balance of self-esteem is pivotal and difficult to achieve. Too much perceived self-worth can create a negative sense of entitlement and apathetic characteristics, while low thoughts of perceived self-worth can be emotionally and physically debilitating. This creates a sense of hopelessness, guilt or even self-shame. Other common signs of low self-esteem can include:
- Codependency Or Love Addiction
- Social Anxiety, General Anxiety Or Depression
- Powerlessness And Hopelessness
- Physical, Emotional, Drug Or Sexual Abuse
Unhealthy self-esteem affects all ages and genders which can cause issues with your body-image, decision-making and personal responsibility. Severe deficits of one’s self-esteem may eventually lead to serious concerns of depression, anxiety, conduct disorders, narcissism, anti-social behaviors and ongoing relationship problems.
