Therapy for Low Self-Esteem
Overcoming Low Self-Esteem
To feel valued and accepted is a fundamental psychological need, and if we suffer from low self-esteem, it's what we do to compensate can often land us in deeper trouble in the longer run.
Causes of Low Self-Esteem
The way we gain self-esteem is through secure relationships and also success experiences – be they at work or in our leisure time. The problem is that starting out with low self-esteem can create a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy. For example excessive neediness of others' acceptance, leads to much too much compliance (doormat syndrome) and suppression within a relationship, of one's own needs and feelings. The most minor of conflicts and rejection are perceived as very threatening in this context, and produce over-reactions. Low self-esteem leads to a non-assertive approach to life, too much dependency, and helplessness in the face of stress.
