Self-esteem problems can be the root-cause of all sorts of struggles.
It may make it difficult for you to achieve healthy relationships.
Or, keep you from achieving professional goals.
Sometimes self-esteem issues turn you into own worst enemy.
Judgement...shame... guilt... invade your mind
Making you reject your body, your decisions, and not value your achievements.
Make you feel undeserving of good things...
But why do you have low self-esteem?
How did this happen?
And more importantly... how can you learn to love yourself again? Imagine that when you are born, your life looks like a blank canvas.
As you grow and experience life, you begin to take your first strokes that shape the image you have of yourself.
When you experience difficulties in your life, where for example, you feel judged, rejected, or when you go through situations of suffering, this can splash and stain the way you see yourself.
You begin to form beliefs about your worth, and develop a distorted image of who you really are. Why seek help from a therapist? With the help of a therapist, you can learn to be the one who decides how this image will look.
You will be able to empower yourself to give firm, precise brushstrokes, to be able to build a masterpiece with your own life, and give it the value it deserves.
Unworthiness and hopelessness can surely cloud your perspective of things.
But I'm glad you're here, and please believe me when I tell you this:
You're not alone.
Things can get better.
Living with low self-esteem is very debilitating and it is normal for you to feel trapped and confused.
If you feel that low self-esteem is taking away your quality of life. If it is affecting your relationships, your job and your ability to dream and smile ... When you seek help, you can work on recognizing and appreciating both the dark and the colorful brushstrokes that you have been drawing throughout your life. Both contribute to who you are. They make you real.
Although today you may be struggling to recognize your value, you are a masterpiece in construction, and I'm here for you.
