Feelings of a person with low self-esteem


Love and jealousy are intimately related since the one who loves usually remains alert towards the other person. Jealousy in small doses is healthy, but it can be unhealthy and cause irreparable pain when they are excessive. As with many psychological problems, jealousy is the beginning and the end of a personal or family situation.

It is usual for jealousy to occur in every relationship for fear of losing a loved one, But you have to be able to control them to be happy because it is difficult for the jealous person to become so since his desire to control his partner and the suspicion of all her actions make it impossible for him to achieve that happiness.

"I want to love you without suffocating you, appreciate you without judging you, join you without enslaving you, invite you without demanding you, leave you without feeling guilty, criticize you without hurting you and help you without belittling you. If I can get the same from you, then we can meet and enrich each other" (Virginia Satir)


Envy is the emotion that occurs when a person lacks some qualities concerning another, achievements, or possessions. In envy, there is a social comparison that threatens another person’s self-esteem: someone has something that the envious person does not have. Therefore, envy refers to feeling threatened by someone who we believe has something important to us.

People with low self-esteem are constantly comparing themselves to others. They believe that they do not have good qualities. Therefore, they feel inferior to others. They also feel that others are more important than themselves.

We are envious because we do not accept ourselves; we do not love ourselves enough. Envy and jealousy are toxic emotions. However, we can use these emotions and transform them into healthy ones; we need to love and respect ourselves as we are and be grateful for who we are.

Perfectionism can be the result of low self-esteem. It is an attempt to show ourselves and others that we are capable and worthy of being valued and appreciated, but at the same time, it is one of the main obstacles to increasing our self-esteem.

Perfectionism is related to:

The need to have the approval of others and ourselves.

The fear of rejection.

A self-critical attitude, very negative.

There is extremist thinking, where there is only all or nothing, good or bad, and we do not see intermediate points.

The wrong perception of ourselves and reality, believing that it is possible that everything a person does, always turns out well.
