Individual Counseling and Therapy in Columbia, Mo

Our Brave therapists help you improve your most important relationship, the one with yourself. 

When we talk about self-esteem, the two most essential factors get involved, i.e., self-worth and self-efficacy. Let's first emphasize self-worth. Self-worth simply means how worthy or valuable you consider yourself. Low self-worth makes everything you get seem undeserved. The opportunities you receive, the kindness with which you are treated, or the genuine forgiveness that you get all seems undeserved. You feel as if you are not worthy of love and care. 

So now, what is self-efficacy? It is a belief in your own capabilities and proficiencies. There are people who have high efficacy. Such people always have a lot of faith in themselves. They have the confidence to complete the most challenging task, fulfill their goals, make new friends, and create a meritorious life for themselves. On the other hand, individuals with low self-efficacy are ineffective and hopeless. 

The combination of self-worth and self-efficacy forms self-esteem. Some individuals have high self-worth but low self-efficacy or vice versa. Some people have both, i.e., low self-worth and low self-efficacy, and that's nothing but LOW-SELF ESTEEM!

Does low self-esteem really impact your life?

Self-esteem is a struggle for everyone, right?

It's not just you, but most people have this question. Let's shorten the answer with some real examples. Have you ever thought, "No doubt, I got the highest marks in the exam, but maybe it was due to luck," or "I got the promotion but did I really deserve it?"

Sometimes you have an innate assumption that you don't deserve your parents' love and praise. You think they do it because "they have to" or because "you don't feel left out."

The mentioned examples might seem "NOT A BIG DEAL," but trust me, it is. When you start to feel this way, you stop appreciating yourself and doubt every good that happens. Generally, people with low self-esteem or self-love live in discomfort or distress. 

"This looks like me." but is it possible to build self-esteem?

Without any doubt, you can! Self-esteem is malleable & moldable, and there's where its beauty lies. It varies from person to person. Some may take a short time to realize the beautiful concepts of self-love, while others take time to apprehend the idea of self-love and self-esteem. But always remember, you can build self-esteem through the proper guidance, counseling, and dedication. 

Why Self-Esteem Counseling at Brave?

Our self-esteem counseling at brave emphasizes shedding discomfort rather than giving people a temporary band-aid.

If you struggle with low self-esteem, chances are you've developed a negative internal dialog or engaged in negative self-talk. Counseling can help you challenge your hurtful and destructive self-talk, learning to speak to your inner self with compassion. I know it sounds a little silly or maybe a bit too weird for you. It's not as bad as it sounds. Research has demonstrated changing negative self-talk is vital to improve your self-esteem.

Being self-compassionate means we are kind and forgiving to ourselves and avoid being harsh or overly critical of ourselves. Self-compassion can lead us to a healthy sense of self-esteem. 

Let our Brave counselors help you make positive strides toward self-esteem! Don't wait any longer. Many people have struggled with low self-esteem at some point. But it's time that you give primacy to YOURSELF!

Don't wait for your low self-esteem to prevent you from making the most critical decisions in life.
