8 Signs of Lack Of Confidence
Everyone experiences moments of low self-esteem — you may say it’s just part of being a human being! Rough patches in life may have us questioning our self-confidence and sometimes we need to feel a little self-pity. And then we pull ourselves together, move on, and feel better. When you have healthy self-esteem, it’s just that easy, but not everyone feels this way.
It's simple to brush off low self-esteem or a lack of confidence as a character trait, or to mistake it for humility. But low self-esteem can have long-term damaging effects, ranging from smaller-scale occurrences — not speaking up in class or work meetings, for example — to longer-term threats, like relationship problems, mental health issues, or negative thoughts that result in self-damaging behavior.
