How does self esteem relate to feelings of depression and anxiety?
What you belief about yourself is often derogatory even though psychologists estimate that over 90% of your beliefs are unconscious and that most of your unconscious beliefs were created as a result of thoughts that you were positively and negatively programmed to believe.
Most of your core beliefs were formed when you were a small child. Counseling for your depression and anxiety can help you uncover these beliefs that are not serving you in your relationships and can prevent you from experiencing more joy.
People with low self esteem often expect to be judged negatively by other people. People with low self esteem also tend to expect more bad things to happen to them in general.
“Behind all your anger, fear, shame, and loss, beneath all your sadness and pain…is the need for love! Know that you are loved, even if you don’t know it! For you are a Being of light and love, a child of God, and one with the entire Universe! Each day comes bearing GIFTS; all you have to do…is untie the ribbons! ” – Author Unknown
