Self-esteem related issues - Why it is important to address this?
Low self-esteem is a reasonably frequent issue that has the potential to severely impede a person's ability to live a happy and full life. Our Therapists can help patients identify the source of their problem and learn how to deal with it in a good way.
WHAT IS SELF-ESTEEM?
The phrase "self-esteem" relates to your personal evaluation of your own value and attitude toward oneself. If you have a high self-esteem, you are likely to believe that you are competent and worthy of love and respect. If you have poor self-esteem, you may believe that you are unworthy of regard, affection, or respect, and you may underestimate your own abilities and capabilities. For some people, low self-esteem is more subtle and only manifests itself in specific parts of their lives, such as personal relationships, group circumstances, or public speaking.
Unsurprisingly, poor self-esteem may have serious consequences in all aspects of your life, from employment to romance. If you have poor self-esteem, you may feel undeserving of advancement or love at some point in your life. You may find it difficult to ask for help when you need it, believing that admitting your need is a sign of failure. When you are chastised, you are prone to overreacting. You may find it challenging to make decisions because you are always concerned about making a mistake.
For many people, low self-esteem prevents them from being as joyful as they might or should be. This is why most psychologists see self-esteem as a basic human need; without appropriate levels of self-esteem, it is extremely impossible to live a satisfying life.
TREATING LOW SELF-ESTEEM
Self-esteem difficulties are a frequent issue that many people experience at some time in their life. It's a significant condition that can benefit from external, professional help, since it seriously limits the sufferer's capacity to enjoy the things they're performing and has an influence on wellness. When it comes to self-esteem, some individuals are afraid to seek professional help, yet it may provide you with the tools you need to go forward and take charge.
Although issues with self-esteem may frequently be linked back to childhood and adolescent events, someone who is struggling with this today has to develop a new way of perceiving themselves and their role in the world. Regardless of the cause of the problem, counseling may make a significant and beneficial influence in this situation.
If you have been battling with self-esteem difficulties, meeting with a therapist who can assess you and recommend a course of action may be quite beneficial. A psychologist, psychotherapist, or psychiatrist can work with you to develop a treatment plan based on your specific situation. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which focuses on finding practical, pragmatic ways to help you think about yourself differently and respond to challenges to your self-esteem in your surroundings in a more aware, positive way, can be beneficial. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is another well-established therapy that can give significant relief for the anxiety that is frequently associated with poor self-esteem.
