In brief: Low Self Esteem

We are born feeling good about ourselves until we learn through interactions or perceptions of how the important people in our lives see us, we look into the mirrors of our caregivers to see who we are, if we look in a cracked mirror we get a distorted view of ourselves that needs to be changed through feedback from more objective people.
Best.
