With the numbers dying of sudden cardiac death estimated to be in excess of 300,000 per year, the chances are you will need these skills sooner rather than later.
Low self esteem has many causes. Your parents may have wanted the best for you but may have had problems showing their feelings. In the old days, it wasn’t done for Dads to go around hugging their kids or telling them they loved them. So some children grew up thinking their parents didn’t love them or that they were not important.
You may have been bullied at school. Kids can be very cruel especially if there is something different about another child be it their weight, their height, their religion, race or color of their skin. There are many reasons why people lack self confidence. Sometimes we never know what caused the original problem.
The good news is that it is possible to overcome self esteem issues. You can do this by setting yourself small goals and achieving them. Each achievement will increase your sense of self worth and someday, hopefully, your self esteem problems will be a thing of the past.
