Today’s “Ask Petey” video question is the third of four in a series of self-esteem videos I’ve been speaking about for the last couple of weeks. After discussing “What’s The Story on Self-Esteem” and then figuring out “What Went Wrong” last week, it’s time to clearly define what some of the symptoms or signs of low self-esteem are. The reason I speak about this on my video this week is because there can be so much misinterpretation that occurs when people perceive things incorrectly. I began to have a feeling that this was really the main issue when she began to tell me her story. Sue began to tell me stories of how she knew if she wasn’t fat and could lose weight that she would have more friends. She also KNEW that people thought she was stupid because nobody ever really wanted to get in long conversations with her about anything. Listen to this video for the REAL signs of low self-esteem and see if any of it resonates with you! Self-esteem is basically the way we think about ourselves, either high or low, both have commands on our lives. When you feel bad about yourself and negatively reacts to life situation; When negative thoughts take over your thinking pattern. Low self-esteem is not yet a recognized mental illness, but goes one on one with mental health. People with low self-esteem spend much time in ascertaining their negative and self-constructed beliefs, even though, they are okay and well-sounding as other people. Low self esteem hinders our growth and success, it deliberately crushes us down and destroys our future.

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. It may seem unimportant to worry about teen self esteem, but in reality, it can set the stage for one’s entire life. There is a fine line between giving your teen a false sense of complacency and feelings of entitlement and self esteem. She could tell by the way people were looking at her that they were disgusted by her weight. She KNEW that people didn’t like her because they never invited her out with them socially.
What she didn’t realize was that with her low self-esteem she PERCEIVED all of these things to be true because she felt so bad about herself she couldn’t see anything different.

Hugging may be a very simple act, but this could very well give warmth to a dampened spirit. According to a questionnaire given to 90,000 students in grades 7-12, self esteem helps teens deal with emotional stress. Teen pregnancy statistics show time and time again that girls who engage in unprotected sex often have lower self esteem than their counterparts.
It may seem shallow, but most teenagers are concerned to some degree about their appearance. Sometimes parents or other authority figures put teens down and cause self esteem problems. If your teen is overweight, this can be done by exercising with him or her and encouraging him or her to lose weight for health reasons.
Make sure that you don’t express excessive disappointment when your teen does not perform to your expectations.

But if you are careful, you should be able to help your teenager develop a healthy attitude toward him or herself. It may look or sound very differently than how someone else perceives them in life, but it is the perception of themselves and how they tell their story that speaks to the real core issues at hand. Though, we can’t do without challenges which come from stress, that have become parts of our lives and often make us to doubt ourselves.
Additionally, having good self esteem correlates with success later in life – mainly because good grades and confidence can allow a teen to start out with scholarships and other opportunities. Other decisions, such as those regarding risky behavior and use of illegal drugs, can result from low teen self esteem. In some cases, teenagers who cannot overcome their feelings of hopelessness and low self esteem resort to suicide. This can be difficult to overcome, because in some cases it can be difficult to change one’s appearance. Parents, coaches and teachers who always criticize can make a teenager feel as though he or she never does anything right, and is never valued. Overweight teens often feel bad about themselves, as do teens that think that there is some sort of irregularity with the way they look. Explain that mistakes should be viewed as chances to learn and grow, rather than a measure of one’s worth. If the appearance issue is something that can’t be changed, help your teen gain an acceptance for it.
There are different factors that go into self esteem, and for teenagers these factors often make a bigger difference.
This may require counseling, especially if the issue is of a recent development, as from an accident.
Low teen self esteem can lead to sexual activity (sometimes resulting in teen pregnancy), depression and even suicide.
