Do you love yourself or do you hate yourself? Based on the number of people who read our blog, 5 Things to Think or Do When You Hate Yourself, if you lean more towards hating yourself you are NOT alone. Many people suffer from low self-esteem and we want to help you change your perspective.

Self-esteem reflects your overall evaluation of your own worth. It is the decision made by an individual to view themselves in either a positive or negative light, resulting in either high or low self-esteem. Self-esteem encompasses beliefs about oneself such as “I am competent” or “I am a loser.”

At TheHopeLine we address how to break the cycle of self-hate and build a healthy respect for yourself.

Additionally, within the topic of self-esteem fall a lot of other issues. For example, perhaps your low self-worth causes you to resort to negative behaviors, such as self-harm, eating disorders or even suicidal ideation. Or perhaps your low self-esteem is the result of bullying or school pressures.

After 25 years of talking with young adults we’ve heard it all, never judged, and provided hope. All of this and more is addressed here.
