I have shit self-esteem
You live in a society that is filled with guilt and shame where so many people have low self-esteem.
As a child, you got bullied and called a weirdo for anything that made you different from others.
At school and work you might have gotten in trouble for:
- Moving too much, even though you are a kinesthetic learner.
- Talking too much, even though you are an external processor or extrovert.
- Not answering questions fast enough, even though you are an internal processor.
- Being too quiet or not social enough, even though you are an introvert.
If you went to church, people said that your desires were sinful and you were going to hell.
Society tells you that you aren’t skinny enough, attractive enough, white enough, straight enough, masculine enough, gender conforming enough, Judeo-Christian enough, rich enough, smart enough, monogamous enough, or sexually vanilla enough.
You’ve Always Struggled with low Self-Esteem.
You start to notice that people treat you like you are less than them. Treating you like you’re a child or aren’t even human. Sometimes you feel like a piece of furniture in the room because they don’t even acknowledge your existence enough to be mean to you. You start to question whether you’re even real.
You begin to think “I hate myself” or “I’m not lovable.” Simon Cowell and Gordon Ramsay are in your head yelling at you and telling you how much you suck and will never amount to anything.
Nothing you do is ever good enough.
You can’t ever make a mistake and you constantly doubt your decisions.
Changes are torture for you because they involve so many unknowns and require you to make so many fucking decisions.
If things don’t go well, you know it’s because you did something wrong or because you just didn’t try hard enough.
You may get excited about something for a moment, but then the tiniest comment or look from someone else brings you down. Sometimes what brings you down is just your own thoughts about what others might say or think.
“You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches.” -Dita Von Teese

Online therapy for low self-esteem in Colorado
Online therapy is just as effective as in person self-esteem counseling. We get to use the same techniques to help with low confidence- CBT, somatic therapy, and sound therapy. Online therapy can be better if you worry about being judged. Because nobody is going to see you outside my office or in my waiting room. And you get to control how much of you I get to see.
Serving the Denver Metro Area, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Boulder, Grand Junction, Greeley, Pueblo and the entire state with online therapy in Colorado. I do not see clients at my home-based office located in Bailey, CO.
