 Low self esteem 

Although low self-esteem is not considered an emotional or personality disorder in itself, it is present in most disorders. It corrects itself naturally when the disorder is resolved. For example, lack of confidence after anxiety or prolonged depression, or following an experience of trauma. However, when low self-esteem is a vulnerability factor for other disorders, such as depression, eating disorders or social anxiety, for example, it needs to be treated directly.


To build a more balanced sense of self, it is necessary to interrupt the processes that maintain low self-esteem, learning to identify and challenge negative automatic thoughts, negative beliefs about yourself, others and the world, and the dysfunctional assumptions commonly linked to those beliefs. "An example of a dysfunctional assumption is" I have to make everything perfect or you will see that I am incompetent ".
