Self-Esteem and Depression

Posted on March 19, 2018

When you’re depressed and your self-esteem feels like it’s sinking daily, it's easy to compare yourself to others and feel like you are not good enough. Depression and low self-esteem often go hand-in-hand. Discussing positive qualities and interests about ourselves with others who understand what you are going through, is a good way to start to climb out of the low self-esteem cycle.

On MyDepressionTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with depression, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Self-esteem is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about self-esteem:

How do you find love again, when you have been depressed for so long?

How do you cope with not feeling self-confident about your self?

Does anyone else feel that their relationship with family has attributed to their low self-esteem?

Here are some conversations about self-esteem:

What people don't realize that depression and low self-confidence is an everyday battle.

A member writes a poem about self-belief.

Have an interview tomorrow for my dream job and trying to find a way out of it.

Can you relate?
