Again, and it goes along with your list, Dwigie, as long as the qualification for feeling good about ourselves is somewhere other than within us, self-esteem will be elusive.
"No ray of sunshine is ever lost, but the green which it awakes into existence needs time to sprout, and it is not always granted to the sower to see the harvest. All work that is worth anything is done in faith." - Albert Schweitzer
I'm actually confused as to what level of self esteem I have.
What constitutes low self-esteem?
What are symptoms of a deficit of self-esteem?
Anyway I think maybe people with lower levels of self-esteem just find themselves drifting to forums like these. Where it's easier to communicate or whatever with less worries and more comfort--because it's the internet.
"How dreadful!" cried Lord Henry. "I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect." ~ Oscar Wilde - The picture of Dorian Gray
Why so many people on this forum have this problem?
There are many threads about things that are in the end linked to
self-esteem. In the personal DNA thread I have seen that many people have this problem and I just want to understand way?
In the real life I have seen plenty of people which on purpose are trying to take the role of the person with low self-esteem.
I am not saying that people should be ego-maniacs but I simply do not see the side of this people.
I have noticed that this usually manifest itself in social environment.
So, why people have problems with low self-esteem?
You do not have a deficit of self esteem.
Self esteem is the mirror of the perception of the other.
