Self-esteem describes our sense of worth and reflects how we perceive ourselves. It plays a significant role in our mental processing, confidence, and ability to succeed. It impacts our sense of well-being and what we deem to be successes in our life. Low self-esteem can open the door to self-defeating behaviors such as disregarding your own opinions, needs, and thoughts. Consequently, this can have a profound impact on individuals’ life-achievements. This is because of difficulties navigating through a war of negative thoughts, intrusions, feelings of worthlessness, and feeling unwanted. Over time, this can even lead to an overall negative and hopeless outlook on life.
Some of the more common causes of low self-esteem in men include:
- Unhappy childhood
- Critical parents at an early age
- Financial trouble
- Stress in personal relationships
- Unattained professional aspirations
