Low Self-Esteem & Confidence


“If people knew the real me they’d reject me.”  “I’m worthless.”  “Why would anyone love me?”  “I’ll never get that job. I won’t even bother applying.”  “I am no good at anything.”  “I am nobody.”  “I’m incompetent.”  “No one would ever want to date me.”

Maybe you’ve said some of these things to yourself.  You may think some of these thoughts in specific situations, or maybe you even think and feel this way about yourself all the time.  Perhaps one or several of these thoughts have kept you from making friendships, applying for jobs, speaking up in class or in the workplace, sharing your ideas, or going on dates.  You may find that you compare yourself to others regularly and end up feeling worse. 

How we feel about ourselves is the undercurrent to all we do.  Feeling bad about ourselves can keep us from enjoying our lives, creating all types of relationships, and enjoying new experiences in life.  Low self esteem can even lead to depression and/or thoughts of self-harm.

If you are struggling with low self esteem and you want to feel better, experience increased joy, confidence, and improvements in all areas of your life, please contacts us.  At MCCG, we provide a confidential, compassionate, and non-judgmental environment where you can speak to one of our therapists.
