There is always a root to a problem, probably self-esteem. Without identifying why and how it got there, we don’t have the tools to overcome this situation for good. Knowing what negative factors are ingrained in your mind and otherway ponting out where low self-esteem came from will help you to bulk-up yourself. So let’s discuss it in this article!
Why you must find the root cause of low self-esteem?
The battles with self-development while we have to walk between the shame/ guilty with the feeling of confidence is a fight with annoying ivy covering a glorious home. Perhaps you have been used to the vines, even embracing them on occasion. But finally, they are more problematic than optimistic, maybe they destroyed the foundation. I used this analogy just to a beautiful young woman who fail anything but attractive.”I am trying, and I practice the tools, but I am always struggling with the way i look” she said.
“So its like you are cutting a small leaf or branch off, but still feel like you covered in vines. Some of the tricks and tools we have used work but they didn’t seem like fixing the root, the reason still there.”
Even if we have done deep work in the past, when we thought we had eradicated those low self-esteem beliefs for good, the root can keep growing. In the right circumstances, it can make you weak and take over your mind.
