Have you ever got so caught up in thinking about something that is going on and playing it out in your mind to the point where you have thought of all the things that could go wrong if you decide to do the something you started to think about?
It's totally normal for people to feel down about themselves from time to time but when these feelings start to hang around all the time it's usually an indication of low self-esteem. If you have low self-esteem it means that you have negative ideas about your worth and value as a person. There are various signs of low self-esteem, including:
- Being really critical of yourself
- Focusing on the negatives and ignoring your accomplishments
- Comparing yourself to others
- Not accepting any compliments that you receive
- Negative self-talk
