A 22-year-old female asked:

Is there a relation between social anxiety and low self esteem?

Yes: Social anxiety limits interaction with others. Avoiding social activities due to anxiety often causes isolation and lowers self-esteem. For a good overview, see: http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/social-anxiety/Pages/Social-anxiety.aspx I hope this helps. Best wishes.
