Habits That Cause Depression And Low Self-Esteem

Find fault with yourself

Some people do more than their share of finding fault with all kinds of things around them. They do so only partly because things are not so great around them. But the main reason is that they are unhappy with themselves.



Procrastination is a common human tendency. It is the habit of delaying an important task, usually by focusing on less urgent, more enjoyable, and easier activities instead. It is different from laziness, which is the unwillingness to act. Procrastination is a destructive vicious cycle. You can sabotage your life, stop achieving results and goals, and this will erode any motivation and confidence you already have, which can result in feelings of hopelessness, sadness or stress. When it comes to procrastination, low self-efficacy can cause you to put off a task because you don't think you can get yourself organized enough to complete it.


Doubt your instincts and decisions

Give your intuition a chance and you'll give yourself the biggest gift of your life. Your brain will always create doubt and question your judgments – as it probably should to keep up safe and allow us to rationalize. But your gut just knows when something is RIGHT for you. So save your brain for the analytical stuff and trust your gut. It’s science.

People Pleaser

A People Pleaser is one of the nicest and most helpful people you know. They never say no. Unfortunately, it can be an extremely unhealthy pattern of behavior. Real friends won’t expect you to be a yes-man all the time. If you try to please everyone all the time, someone will take advantage of you, leaving you hurt.

According to Dr. Susan Newman, people pleasers want everyone around them to be happy. And they will do whatever it takes to keep them that way. They put everyone else before themselves. Dr. Newman said, "for some, saying 'yes' is a habit." For others it’s almost an addiction, it makes them feel like they need to be needed.
