Self Esteem

Self Esteem

Self Esteem has a lot to do with the way in which you value and respect yourself. This term speaks to the mental image that we have ourselves, our sense of self-worth and our levels of confidence. Some studies have suggested that members of the LGBTQ+ community are more susceptible to low self-esteem due to many of the concerns they face throughout their lives.

While this is not an issue that is limited to the LGBTQ+ community, it remains important to us because of the impact that it can have on our lives i.e. (Depression, risky sexual behaviors, drug use/addiction, poor life choices, and negative self-image).

Often individuals with low self-esteem report feeling as though they are not important, no one loves them and can often feel as though their life has little meaning despite evidence to the contrary. Poor self-esteem is most often associated with a lack of confidence and an inability to assert one’s self and effectively express feelings. Some of the potential signs of poor self-esteem may include:

  • Apologizing often (feeling as though everything that goes wrong is your fault)
  • Feeling unworthy when good things happen to you
  • Checking your phone when you’re left alone in a social setting rather than mingling or socializing with others
  • Struggling to make simple decisions like picking a place to eat and relying on others to make choices for you
  • Isolating yourself or withdrawing from social interaction
  • You focus a lot on your problems rather than finding the good in your life
  • Physical signs i.e. (excessive sleeping, headaches and feeling tired all the time)
