Self-esteem may be best described as how we perceive our worthiness as a person. Our sense of self is developed during childhood and continues throughout life, affected by a variety of factors. A person’s self-esteem can impact their day-to-day functioning, including their ability to make choices and their overall health.
A person with low self-esteem may experience such symptoms as:
- Emotional turmoil
- Social withdrawal
- Poor body image
- Feeling worthless, helpless to change life for the better
