    My Story

    I've had really bad self-esteem ever since my stepmother came into my family. I know I shouldn't listen to the things she says about me and to me, and I know I shouldn't think about them too much, but I can't help it. As a result I can never get into a proper relationship. All...

    Self-esteem, Never Worked For Me

    I have low self-esteem.  I belive that self-esteem is a gift that your parents should give you, mine forgot.  I always give my kids a big brimming bowl of self-esteem each day, because once you walk out the door for the day the world begins to pick at your self-esteem...

    I am worried all the time. I worry about absolutely every thing I do. I can’t communicate with people always. That scares me. I think I am not good enough and i think people may not like me. I know this is all caused by my low self-esteem. I visit psychologist and that has made...

    for a few days now, which I might have partly reflected in comments I've made here and there, can't remember... What I've been thinking, is when I'm lonely it helps to come online and have some contact with others. I guess it improves my mood and contributes to a positive sense...

    I've had low self esteem problems all my life.

    I grew up being the only kid in a wheelchair in my town and because of that I was bullied relentlessly and the affects of it really just stayed with me through my life always having low self esteem.

    Dear guys, It's extremely hurtful

    when you tell a woman she's ugly and fat. You think it's funny at the time, but words hurt. Here's to not eating for the next week! Sincerely, it's not funny

    I have the lowest self-esteem.

    Let's see. I spent most of my childhood up until the age of 12 sitting around at home, supposedly "home schooled." By the time I started 7th grade at a public school, I had NO social skills and it took several years for me to become even close to normal. As a result, every time...

    I think I'm kind and funny,

    which are definitely qualities that I wouldn't trade for attractiveness. But sometimes I just feel like I fade behind my other friends who are prettier and more confident than I am. I've always been kind of on the shy side, so it's hard for me to open up and be myself around...

    I am never happy with myself.

    Every person has dealt with low self-esteem

    and so have I. It’s not the best feeling in the world, but it’s not that bad either. The way we value ourselves is a hard thing to change. No matter how much pressure some person has on you to change your self-esteem, it’s just not going to happen – simple as that. There...

    Why do I always torture myself by seeing

    pictures of really pretty girls? This just makes me feel like I'm nothing compared to them. Why do I fall in love with guys I'd never have chance with? Ridiculous, I know. Maybe I just want to realize I wont ever be like those girls and wont ever date that kind of guys... :/

    who has low self esteem but I pretend I have a lot of confidence. My self esteem is so low that when any guy or girl calls me pretty, I believe I owe them something in return. It's sad but I can't help it...I have issues.
