Why i feel too low of myself


Hello there, thanks for contacting us!
Firstly, welcome to Ask Alex. It takes courage to reach out and ask for help, and we’re really glad you did. Feeling low about yourself is something many teenagers experience, and it’s completely normal to have moments where you doubt yourself or feel down. It’s important to recognise that you’re not alone in feeling this way.
It’s okay to feel low sometimes, but if these feelings persist and start affecting your daily life, it might be a good idea to talk to someone you trust, like a family member, teacher, or counsellor. Bottling up your emotions can make things feel even more overwhelming, so finding someone to confide in can really help.
Remember, your worth is not defined by your achievements or what others think of you. You are unique and valuable just as you are, flaws and all. It’s important to practice self-care and remind yourself of your strengths and accomplishments, no matter how small they may seem. This article may help you with ways to practice self-care
