There are several factors that can cause someone to have a lack self esteem and self worth.
Bullying is one of the major causes that can cause someone to have very little self esteem and self worth. Being picked on or harassed constantly whether in the home environment by siblings or in school by bullies can take a toll on a person’s self confidence. A suggestion to deal with the bullying is first by talking to your parents first and getting them involved by telling them exactly what is going on.
2. Society and Media
We live in the technological age and it seems like through social media websites like Instagram and Facebook everyone is free to give their unsolicited opinion about what they like and don’t like and if you are an impressionable young teen or adolescent then this could have a negative impact on you and lead to poor self esteem. It is wise then to to limit the use of social media especially if used on a regular basis.
3. Extremely High Expectations
Though it is a good thing to have reasonable expectations, having very high expectations placed on you can become burdensome especially if you feel like you will not be able to live up to the high expectations. Knowing that living up to the high expectation is not what is most important once you are trying your best and putting your best foot forward is what is key in a situation like this.
