Does anyone suffer very low self esteem as well. I have had low self esteem since I was at secondary day school. I went to a private school along with other reasonably intelligent people and was made to feel thick by staff and pupils when I was not a straight A student. The problem with my current degree is it is vocational so I do so many weeks in uni and so many weeks in practice. At the end of each practice block my tutor comes in for a meeting with my mentor and I. All this being under the microscope and having feedback about where I can improve is actually not good for me as my low self esteem feels like it has been given a real kicking. I have to work hard to get through this and there are many tears at home. my self esteem is about as low as it can get now but still I continue. I am seeing the gp next week and waiting for counselling to deal with all my anxiety, depression and low self esteem. How do other people with low self esteem deal with situations where being judged is part of the job/course?
