When I was a teenager, I have had low self-esteem for a long time. By low self-esteem, I mean crushed self-esteem. I was a very anxious girl. It all started in my teen years when my self-esteem started going down dramatically. Then, I developed depression of some sort. I boost my self-esteem in several ways. First of all, it took me years to fully grasp that I'm more worth than gold. A professional therapist and my college guidance counselor helped me out. Their advice helped me. This is how I quickly recovered from both depression and especially low self-esteem. The main cause of my depression was low self-esteem. Even if I already love myself so much and have high self-esteem now, I still constantly keep myself in check no matter what happens. I continue to affirm that I'm worthy, deserving of everything, and other positive affirmations. I continue to be consistent with my positive affirmations. The moment I increased my self-confidence, I don't please everyone and I'm able to do things that I would never think I could do.
