Self-Esteem and Confidence

“Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend.” Lao Tzu

Low self-esteem can arise from a multitude of environmental and internal stressors. It can be attributed to a recent event such as a divorce, or a more distal factor such as a traumatic childhood. Either way, a low self-esteem can lead to mental health concerns, which can further negatively impact an already low self-esteem. Research has shown that a low self-esteem can contribute to the development of mood disorders such as depression and anxiety. A poor self-esteem can result in an individual feeling alone and isolated. The individual may feel overcome with fear and doubt in performing and asserting themselves in front of others. This may result in a more passive approach to interpersonal interactions be it at work, school, with family or friends.
