Low self esteem comes in many forms: from having doubt about your present situation, having issues with how you look like or feeling as if you are just not good enough. No matter the cause, self esteem issues can have a very negative effect with a woman’s quality of life. Women with low self esteem can be more indifferent, un-motivated, and miserable in general. Judging themselves by their shortcomings rather than by their positive qualities they look at other people’s accomplishments as a reflection of their own failures in life.
Low self esteem concerns is a problem more common among women than men. Problems with self esteem, when not resolved, can lead a women to depression. Women suffer twice as much with depression than men, self esteem issues being one of the main causes. Issues can become visible from stress at work, stress from home, issues with body image, or experiencing a general lack of self appreciation. Many times self esteem problems started at a very young age, as young girls quickly learn to compare themselves to their peers.
Many activities are available for women that are a great way to help aid in raising low self esteem:
