Self-esteem is your overall opinion of yourself and self-confidence is your trust in your own abilities, qualities and judgment. If you are suffering from low self esteem or low self-confidence, you may be insecure, underachieving, unhappy, unmotivated, angry, withdrawn, and/or have a poor self-image. You may have a fear of making mistakes and therefore are not working to your highest potential.
Low self-esteem/self-confidence can lead to relationship problems, underachieving at work or at school, depression, and anxiety. Self-esteem and self-confidence are on a continuum that can fluctuate at different times in your life, with the goal of trying to keep it balanced in the middle…not too high and not too low.
