Shared Struggles: You Are Not Alone

Struggling with low self-esteem is more common than you might think. Many individuals, regardless of age, gender, or background, grapple with feelings of self-doubt and inadequacy on a daily basis. Research studies estimate that anywhere from 20 to 85 percent of people struggle with low self-esteem. It's a pervasive issue that can affect every aspect of life, from personal relationships to professional endeavors. The constant battle with one's inner critic and the fear of not measuring up are shared experiences among countless others.
