When we choose to work through more of our thoughts, there is a lot we can learn and understand about low self-esteem. Our central beliefs and ideas about the kind of people we are, lie at the heart of how we feel about ourselves.
Thoughts are often brought about by our experiences, good or bad. If we have had nothing but praise or positive experiences, through others, about the kind of people we are, then the way we feel about ourselves is likely to be extremely positive.
If we have a mixed bag of thoughts, then we will have a range of different ideas about ourselves, which we will then use according to our circumstances. How we feel about ourselves is how we will live. If our experiences are nothing but negative, our opinions will be equally as negative. Negative opinions are at the heart of low self-esteem.
We must focus on ourselves, but instead we choose to prove our worth and abilities to those we shouldn’t have to prove our worth and abilities to, but instead we allow those people to control.
As a consequence, we live with low self-esteem, through our childhood, but it’s mostly through our adult life.
