Low self-esteem causes you to feel insignificant, unworthy of love, like a burden to others, or unsure that you can be successful in life. You might even feel like you deserve to be treated poorly. Many people with low self-esteem believe false negative thoughts about themselves and have the tendency to disregard positive attributes. If you are experiencing low self-esteem, you may be experiencing some of the following symptoms:
Mind reading (think that others view you in the same negative way you view yourself)
Fear/Anxiety (of making mistake/being rejected/looking foolish)
Needy in relationships
Lack of assertiveness (passive, aggressive, passive-aggressive)
Obsessive-compulsive or addictive behaviors
Overreacts to situations
