Zero self esteem

I'm not sure why. I feel like I've been beaten down so much lately and that everyone is mad with me and wants to see me fail. I can't trust anyone. I'm feeling paranoid. What I just said is my opinion only and has no basis in fact but I just feel so worthless at the moment. It's not that everything is going wrong coz it's not. I just feel like **** and don't know how to get myself out of it

Anyone know how to manufacture self worth from nothing?

My dad used to say: Make fun of someone else, it does wonders for your self esteem.

Re: Zero self esteem

1. Pick and choose your battles.
2. Expect difficulties and set backs
3. Donít compare yourself to anyone else

I hope these tips help.

Re: Zero self esteem

If you're down in the dumps right now that's a tall order.

I'd say try thinking of good things you've done in the past. Or considering how may people care about you. Look for anything at all that counters the negative thoughts.

The other option is to do something which can be hard if you are depressed. But if you can make yourself it really is worth the effort. Most of my hobbies originated in a depression actually.
