Does Having Depression And Anxiety Contribute To Low Self-esteem And Feelings If No Self-worth?

Does Having Depression And Anxiety Contribute To Low Self-esteem And Feelings If No Self-worth?

Is ut caused by the depression or or just a contributing factor to an already existing condition?

It's a direct result of having depression. The chemical imbalance in the brain leads to a perception of self worthlessness. The one then feeds off the other to create a permanent cycle of self hate. it's so very difficult but u have to try recognise it for what it is n not let it take you down. Big hugs for u

Contributing factor... My dad was an alcoholic and was verbally & emotionally abusive, I have also survived multiple sexual abuses up to age 12 as well as satanic cult ritual abuse. The depression was a result of the many traumas I have overcome. After years of many meds ( all of them) I've reached a place where I can find some peace of mind.

I feel Like I have always struggled with self esteem and insecurity issues, but I was diagnosed with depression in 2014. They do definitely feed off each other, and being insecure and depressed you really can spiral fast. Try to take care and love yourself.
