Ten Indicators Of Low Self-esteem by DaddyCoool: 3:53am On Sep 05, 2023
1) You’re a people pleaser
While it’s nice to be considerate of others and care about their well-being, putting yourself last shows that you don’t value yourself.
It signals that your own desires are less important

2) You can’t take a compliment
When someone gives you a compliment, you don’t simply say “thank you.”
You make a whole production out of it.
Then, you casually list five to ten of your flaws they failed to notice.

3) You say “sorry” too much
Frequently apologizing, even when you haven’t done anything wrong, also signals a lack of confidence.
You do it to avoid conflict or to seek the approval of others.

4) You apologize for your opinions
Speaking of apologizing, if you do it whenever you express an opinion, it’s likely due to low self-esteem.

5) You minimize your knowledge
On the same note, low self-esteem may make you downplay your expertise or knowledge on a particular subject.

6) You don’t have relationships
if you want companionship but don’t put yourself out there, there’s a good chance it’s because your confidence  is down the drain.

7) You make light of your achievements
If you struggle with confidence, there’s a chance you fail to celebrate or recognize your hard work because you don’t see it as significant.
Instead, you tell people you had help, got lucky, or that anyone could have done it.

8} You overwork yourself
People with low self-confidence overwork themselves to prove their worth to themselves and their employers.
If you’re on the verge of burnout and still volunteer for that project no one else wants to touch, something deeper might be going on.

9) You strive for perfectionism
Low self-esteem and perfectionism go hand-in-hand.
People who lack confidence believe they’re not good enough, so they exhaust themselves trying to meet unreasonable standards in everything they do to prove that they are.

10) You use self-deprecating humor
Constantly making jokes at your own expense can reinforce negative self-beliefs.
You might not realize it – but if self-deprecating humor is your default form of interaction, your self-esteem could use some work.

I would not agree on all you said but what caught my attention was about relationships let me tell you so you are in university to go and be looking for girlfriend right wrong their is time for everything so having 100 of girlfriend makes you to have high esteem and confidence wrong in the end you will only marry 1 or if you are a Muslim 4
