Low Self Confidence

Self Esteem is the opinion you have of yourself

Low self-confidence can be due to a number of different reasons, however, a person with low self-confidence may present some of the following characteristics:

  • Heavy self-criticism
  • Hypersensitivity to criticism and resentment towards critics
  • Chronic indecision and fear of mistakes
  • Excessive will to please
  • Perfectionism (which can lead to frustration when not achieved)
  • Neurotic guilt, dwelling on past mistakes
  • Hostility and general defensiveness
  • Pessimism and general negative outlook
  • Envy or resentment
  • Temporary setbacks may be viewed as permanent and intolerable conditions


"If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally
astound ourselves."
