The sources of fluctuating confidence and self-esteem are diverse, influenced by a multitude of factors. These may include past experiences that have left a mark, such as instances of bullying or childhood adversity. Additionally, habits like substance misuse can cast shadows on self-esteem. Long-term health conditions, genetics, and your current life circumstances can all play pivotal roles. Experiencing low self-esteem and a lack of confidence in moderation is a common part of the human experience, and it can even serve as a motivator at times.
Moments that might seem daunting, such as facing a challenging task or expressing your feelings to someone you care about, often lead to personal growth and fulfillment. However, these feelings of inadequacy can become problematic when they start hindering your ability to navigate everyday life. For instance, your self-doubt may intensify to the point where even the mere thought of discussing your dissatisfaction with your boss at work triggers overwhelming anxiety that persists over an extended period.
You might also find that your self-criticisms are disproportionately harsh, convincing you that voicing your concerns will inevitably result in losing your job. Another common consequence of low self-esteem and a lack of confidence is avoidance—steering clear of situations that might trigger feelings of unease. You might choose to decline invitations from friends on the weekend because you fear your partner's disapproval. Additionally, panic attacks can manifest as a distressing aspect of grappling with these deep-seated insecurities.
