Lack of self-esteem and depression
A lack of self-esteem can promote the development of depression.
A number of experts believe that a lack of self-esteem can promote the development of depression. This result is based on numerous scientific studies in psychological practices and clinics.
A person’s disturbed self-esteem often leads them to withdraw more and more from social life.
It also happens that relationships are broken off by those affected. They end their partnership, for example, because they have the feeling that they are worthless and are convinced that they cannot satisfy their partner. Or they burden their partner with their negative attitude until they finally end the partnership themselves. This incident reaffirmed her inner attitude that she was simply not good enough for other people.
A lack of self-esteem negatively affects the mind
There is now sufficient information to suggest that the spread of depressive disorders among adolescents is now based on a lack of self-esteem.
For this reason, the topic of self-esteem also plays an important role in schools, especially where the external living conditions of the children are anything but conducive to a stable self-esteem.
The goal should be to teach students to observe themselves more closely and to increase their self-confidence. Adolescents in particular tend to assess themselves according to how others perceive them or, more precisely, how they think they are perceived by others.
However, adults can also be affected by low self-esteem and resulting melancholy. The roots of the repetitive depressive phases are often in the past and go back to the time of puberty.
Studies in groups of adults with depression have shown that they feel most inferior and are particularly negative when a depressive episode reaches its zenith.
Because of the interrelation between depression and disturbed self-esteem, more and more doctors are focusing on therapeutic measures instead of drug treatment. Therapeutic treatment, such as behavior therapy, often makes it possible to improve the symptoms. In some cases, however, accompanying drug treatment is also required, even if known side effects such as sleep disorders or sexual dysfunction can be expected.
