Self-Esteem and Self-Image
Why do I have low self-esteem?
Low self-esteem generally is founded in our childhood:
* High levels of criticism from your parent or caregiver
Self-esteem and self-image have many over lapping features. Self-image focuses more on how we see ourselves or more specifically our bodies. Some examples of causation include:
* Being the victim of verbal, physical, sexual, or emotional abuse
*Criticized for your weight or appearance
*Unfavorable comparisons to another family member or an absent parent
Low self-esteem and poor self-image can be the underlying cause of anxiety, eating disorders, depression, addictive behaviors, domestic violence, sexual acting out and gang affiliation. When addressing low self-esteem or poor self-image it is important to address the symptoms and the core issues. We can help with that or talk to a local therapist about getting underneath the symptoms and truly changing and improving your life.
