At Texoma Specialty Counseling, PLLC we offer a number of services, with multiple of them being geared towards eating disorders, failed dieting, and most importantly self-esteem — or lack thereof. Because of our extensive counseling history, as well as our experiences with our wonderful clients, we understand just how difficult it can be to overcome having a low-self esteem. There are many ways that you can overcome self-esteem and self-worth issues by utilizing tactics like online therapy and counseling, counseling in person, or e-courses like the free Balanced Badass Bundle — but none of that is possible until you recognize that you suffer from a low self-esteem.
In today’s blog post we will be discussing low self-esteem, and how to recognize that you are suffering from it.
The term “low self-esteem” is thrown around a lot, often times with people using it as a way to say that they are “shy” or “not very confident”. In fact, the term “low self-esteem” is often misused. While being shy and lacking confidence are symptoms of low self-esteem your self-esteem is much different. Self-esteem is instead something that people suffer from while exhibiting symptoms like being quiet and withdrawn, insecure, unhappy, or even depressed. Poor self-esteem is being in a rut, where it seems like you can’t be anything other than be unhappy with yourself.
While suffering from low self-esteem it may seem like you are stuck in a rut that you cannot get out of, but you can. The first step is realizing that you have it.
Recognizing That You Have Low Self Esteem
A lot of people assume that being unhappy and having low self-esteem is the same thing, and this is simply not true. You can be unhappy when you suffer from low-self esteem, but when you realize that your self-esteem is the reason that you are unhappy, you can begin to work on fixing it.
Low self-esteem can be different for everyone. For some people, it is feeling flawed beyond repair, and for others, it’s that they feel helpless. Regardless of what causes you to have low self-esteem, it is important to realize that you feel helpless or flawed because of your low self-esteem — you don’t have low self-esteem as a result of being truly helpless or truly flawed.
Beginning Your Recovery
Once you realize, and admit to yourself, that you have low self-esteem, you can begin to work on accepting yourself. While this can be a difficult process, there are a number of resources that you can use as a crutch, one of these being the Balanced Badass Bundle E-Course from Texoma Specialty Counseling.
The Balanced Badass Bundle was created especially for people with low self-esteem and body issues and will help you regain your confidence and defeat your self-consciousness. You can do this, we know you can! If you are interested in this free e-course or would like to talk to Dr. Steph, contact us today!
