In brief: Reframing thinking
Reframe/restructure your negative thinking by challenging each negative statement--asking if there is any concrete evidence to support the negative statement as being true.
Eliminate the words "should" and "must" from the way you think; substitute "like" or "want". Example "i would like to be married by the age of 30" not i must be married by the age of 30". Reduce feeling like a failure.

In brief: Low Self Esteem
The best way to raise your self-esteem is to raise yourself up by helping someone else.
A positive mindset requires exercise, both mentally and physically. The worst way to raise self-esteem is to compare ourselves to others, bringing them down to us.
