Low self-esteem ALWAYS forms in childhood when the individual is developing an initial view of how he or she, as a person, fits into the world.
Signs of low self-esteem: social withdrawal, sensitivity to criticism, hostility, excessive pre-occupation with personal problems, physical symptoms like head aches, fatigue and insomnia (sleep disorders).
3. Some people may require talking to a counselor or an expert, especially those who went through a more challenging past. A person should not allow the low self-esteem to hinder him or her from realizing the true potentials. If you think you are suffering from a low self-esteem, you can chat anonymously to a facilitator on the MobieG LIVE CHAT. Problems with this approach come from making self-esteem contingent upon success: this implies inherent instability because failure can occur at any moment. This became the most frequently used definition for research, but involves problems of boundary-definition, making self-esteem indistinguishable from such things as narcissism or simple bragging. This two-factor approach, as some have also called it, provides a balanced definition that seems to be capable of dealing with limits of defining self-esteem primarily in terms of competence or worth alone. Self esteem is a concept of personality, for it to grow, we need to have self worth, and this self worth will be sought from embracing challenges that result in the showing of success. Some deep PhD, level type definitions and some basic everyday no fluff definitions - read through them and see which ones you like best. Jenny Charles MBSCP says "Self esteem is how much you value yourself and how important you think you are.

For those who aren’t aware, body dysmorphia is when perfectly normal-looking people like Michael Jackson, Joan Rivers and the entire cast of any of the Real Housewives shows believe themselves to be so physically hideous that they require surgery or extreme action (weightloss, etc) to correct their deformities. Meanwhile, I lived in house with a foxy glamazon mother and two smoking hot sisters with double D, hourglass figures who left a trail of goggling men wherever they went.
Looking back at photos from those times, all I can think is, “OMG, I was so freaking lean and tall and gazelle-like!” But back then, all the other girls were tiny size 8s so my size 10-12 felt kind of massive. Because I felt bad about my belly and wanted to feel better, I would comfort myself with a Mars Bar (can’t believe they were only 45c each in the 80s!).

Or maybe the undead version of Halle Berry, as I’m so incredibly, vividly, glow-in-the-dark, should-have-been-a-natural-redhead WHITE. My boyfriend loves making fat jokes about me, just because he loves the fact that things that would make a “normal” girl cry have no effect on me.
Although I wouldn’t go Halle Berry, more like a cross between Dita Von Teese and Christina Hendricks.

Did you know that there's a difference between a healthy self esteem and an unhealthy high self-esteem? This is to reassure the self of the many capabilities and potentials that may be developed. Hugging may be a very simple act, but this could very well give warmth to a dampened spirit. Self-esteem encompasses beliefs (for example, "I am competent" or "I am incompetent") and emotions such as triumph, despair, pride and shame.
When a person does not think too highly of themselves, she is said to have low self-esteem.
Maslow felt that the most stable source of self-esteem is genuine accomplishment rather than public acclaim or praise.
In the mid 1960s Morris Rosenberg and social-learning theorists defined self-esteem in terms of a stable sense of personal worth or worthiness, (see Rosenberg self esteem scale). High self esteem is a good opinion of yourself and low self esteem is a bad opinion of yourself." - I love it!
Remember, self esteem is most important and it is essential to have a strong Self Esteem to face the world. Only some keep “correcting” themselves until their noses fall off or they look like total freaks, or in fact they simply die of old age because they never stop (*cough, cough, Cher, cough*). I was 14, had suddenly grown 8 inches in a single year, had no boobs whatsoever and carried all my puppy fat on my belly so I looked slightly pregnant – all the time.
I fell into a spiral of self-loathing and convinced myself I needed to lose weight and go up a cup size or two in order to have value.

Then I’d mentally yell at myself to get my fat, lazy arse off the couch and go running until I lost the weight from eating the damn Mars Bar. But this time, instead of looking for all the stuff that I hated, I would see if I could find something I liked. Suddenly, I wasn’t the fat sister with no boobs; I was the athletic sister with legs that went forever and awesome eyelashes!
For the next two decades, no matter what I looked like, I was convinced I looked like Halle Berry naked. Then I try to adjust my mental picture to more closely align with reality so I can do something about it, but it’s hopeless. Only I didn’t wake up old, I woke up 15 kilos overweight and I still think I look like the old me. A former journalist, she continues to work as a PR professional while waiting for the shoes to pay the bills. My sister used to see me as the thinner more pretty sibling and I always saw her as the gracefully tall and prettier sibling and myself like a chubby dwarf.
Then I’d feel worse because I could only do one and a half laps of the local oval and that would never burn off the puppy fat – never mind the Mars Bar I’d thrown down on top of it – so I’d console myself with another Mars Bar. She hopes to one day spend half the year designing shoes and the other half on a Greek beach writing her memoirs, and scandalous bits of fiction based on real people who would otherwise have her killed.
I have always envied that about you and, for the record, I think you’re absolutely stunning.
I gained and lost 15 kilos more than once and even at the peak of my chubbiness, I still mentally drew a picture of Halle Berry naked when I looked in the mirror. I press the button for my floor and turn to stand facing the door and pretend nobody else is there like all the other normal city zombies. And in my head I tried to put J-Lo’s butt onto my naked undead Halle Berry body, but all I saw was Halle Berry.
