    I can't define it, all I know is I don't think I've ever had any. I've always thought myself as unworthy, even though I try to tell myself I am worthy, it doesn't work.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    It's ok to be me. I don't know anyone else I'd rather be.

    That's like asking which came first, the chicken or the egg?

    I've struggled with poor self-esteem and feelings of being unworthy of love for most of my life, too, but mine came from being abused as a child, so it's been a long healing process. Also I was depressed for a long time, and that is demoralizing as well.

    Here's a cool site:
    The Enneagram Type Test
    See if it has something to do with your enneagram.
    Apparently, that can be a contributing factor, although it's another one of those "which came first" questions, I think.
