Everyone has a right to feel good about who they are, but it is normal from time to time to have some negative thoughts. These negative feelings of self-esteem often are triggered by events that have occurred earlier in your life. It may be that when you were a child you were told that you behaved badly or weren’t smart enough. When something happens that reminds you of these feelings, you can relive them. When feelings of low self-esteem become frequent, it can result in a barrier to living life to the fullest, trying new things, and achieving personal and professional goals.
