Thinking negatively about yourself can influence your life and create unnecessary suffering. Low self esteem can come from childhood bullying, toxic relationships, social media, and anywhere you feel less than. Some of the effects of low self esteem can include:

  • Not taking care of yourself
  • Being in toxic relationships
  • Not being assertive
  • Avoiding social situations
  • Depression
  • Unable to trust your own opinion
  • Anxiety
  • Pushing people away
  • Feeling stuck and afraid to take challenges
  • Disordered eating
  • Hard on yourself but easy on others

Low self esteem can take a toll on your life. Counseling is a great way to help improve your self worth. Valor Counseling has extensive experience helping individuals improve their self esteem. Start feeling better today by putting yourself first. Call (630) 410-1818 or contact us today to setup an appointment.
