7 Subtle Signs of Low Self-Esteem: When you have low self-esteem, you’re always looking for ways to feel better about yourself. And when you act out your defensiveness by counterattacking or criticizing back, it temporarily makes you feel powerful.
Take stock where you are.
It's easy to wish for better conditions, but that blinds us from doing the most in the present. Do what you can now. That's usually the path to getting where you want to be.
