Self-esteem and Wellbeing


Self-esteem is about how people feel about themselves and how they think and view themselves as a person.
It can be challenging to see someone struggling with their self-esteem especially if they are negative about themselves or if they seem happy but actually they feel they aren’t good enough.

Self-esteem can also be affected when a problem is experienced over an extended period of time, they can become hopeless and demoralised. Self-confidence can be undermined and low self-esteem can develop.
