Does Anybody Know if Part of Having Social Anxiety Is Suffering From Low Self Confidenced?

Question by wm: does anybody know if part of having social anxiety is suffering from low self confidenced?
I have been searching for this answer and am unable to find it. I just know that I seem to have low confidence more than I want. Also I seem to change my mind alot for instance one day I might want to apply for a job and the next few days I second guess that choice and this has been going on for ever, like well over 15 years. I am now wondering if this also is caused from social anxiety, I really need to have some answers.

The two go together, plus the indecision-
lf you felt good about yourself you would not have social anxiety, you have it because you feel ashamed of yourself, you don’t find much about yourself to like and if you don’t like yourself why would anybody else?
The indecision probably comes from a lack of confidence that you would be good at anything, that they won’t like you, etc.
A good therapist to help you develop activities that will make you proud of yourself would help a lot.
Good luck. I’m pretty sure l would like you.

Self-Esteem and Anxiety Disorders
How you think about yourself defines your self-esteem. How you see yourself defines your self-esteem. If you are hard on yourself when you make a mistake, if you don’t like what you see in the mirror, if you feel like a failure every time your anxiety relapses, chances are you have low self-esteem. You probably don’t like yourself all that well. If you don’t like yourself, it may be difficult to believe that recovery from your anxiety disorder is possible.

Low self-esteem and anxiety may become a vicious cycle. Perhaps low self-esteem is one cause of your disorder. Perhaps years of battling your disorder have led to low self-esteem. It really doesn’t matter which came first because, either way, the two are feeding on each other now. Eliminating one problem won’t necessarily eliminate the other, but working on both will bring you further along the road to recovery.

Low self-esteem doesn’t change to high self-esteem over night. However, the acts of being good to yourself and compassionate towards yourself will help immensely. These are acts which you may practice every day by being conscious of how you “speak” to yourself. If you have low self-esteem, there’s a good chance that you are much harder on yourself than you are on other people.

Would you get angry with someone else for having an anxiety relapse? Then why get angry with yourself? Think of the words you use to comfort your friends when they relapse and give yourself the same treatment. This is a technique you may try whenever you are having critical thoughts towards yourself. You might not believe those comforting words at first, but time and practice will make a difference.

The main problem with changing low self-esteem is recognition of the problem in the first place. You might not notice that you are being critical of yourself. You might not see the connection between your self-criticism and your anxiety. Take some time to notice how you talk to yourself. You might carry a small notebook with you to write down some of these thoughts. In the same notebook, write kind, comforting words you may say to yourself when you start to beat yourself up.

I have been suffering from Self-Esteem and Anxiety Disorders since I was a child. You better consult with your doctor,it will get worse with the years because next step will be “Depression” and there is not cure [yet] for mental depression.
Depression is like a cancer,slowly will eat you up.DEPRESSION is the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. It costs more in treatment and lost productivity than anything but heart disease.We need a network of depression centers, much like the cancer centers.

Please consult with your doctor ASP,before is too late.
