Do You Have Low Self-Esteem? How to Identify the Signs

It’s shocking and saddening to hear that 1 in 6 American adults have depression.

One of the major reasons why one might suffer from depression is due to self-doubt and low self-esteem. If you feel that you have low self-confidence then you need to take action to improve your life.

But what are the signs of low self-esteem and how do you manage them?

Here’s what you need to know:

Lack of Self-Control

Often, if you have low self-confidence you’ll engage in counterproductive behavior and indulge your vices. You’ll have a complete lack of self-control when it comes to regulating these vices.

For example, you might drink an excess of alcohol to feel more confident at a party. Or you might frequently visit strip clubs because you lack confidence in speaking to your desired sex.

You have to first learn how to control these urges. Only once you kick them will you realize that you don’t have to be dependent on them.

Issues With Your Physique

If you have body illnesses such as body dysmorphia and anorexia, then that’s a major sign or symptom of low self-esteem.

For this, you must see a physician to seek their help. Only they can advise you on how to get your physique back in order.

Generally speaking, working out and building a body is a great way to boost your self-confidence. It makes you feel sexier and as funny as it sounds, this is what will make you have a stronger self-worth.

Social Comparison

Do you scroll your Instagram and see one friend tanning on Montenegro’s beaches while another is driving a Lamborghini in Dubai?

We are bombarded with information about our friends and network on a daily basis. Within 5 minutes of scrolling through social media, you can feel depressed.

The answer is to stop comparing yourself to others. You might not be where you are yet. However, you want to enjoy the journey until you get there. If you need to delete social media, then do so!

Lack of Hobbies

So much of our life is consumed by work that we seldom have time for hobbies. This is a surefire way to experience low self-esteem.

Find a hobby that you can dedicate your time to outside of your work. It can be something like writing in your journal each day. Or it can be playing a sport or reading books.

Make sure you dedicate yourself to your hobby if you want to control your lack of self-confidence.

These Are the Signs of Low Self-Esteem

Now you know the signs of low self-esteem and how to solve these issues.

You have to first curb your lack of self-control. Your indulgence in certain vices can prevent you from acknowledging that you lack self-confidence in certain areas.

Make sure you also work to improve your physique. Consult your doctor if you need to. Never compare yourself to others and partake in fun and interesting hobbies. If you follow these tips, you’re already on the right path!
