Young Men Deal With Self-Esteem

Generally speaking, young men have a lot of pressure and expectations put on them. From society, they are held to a standard of strength, intelligence, and success - qualities they often struggle to achieve. This can create a cycle of negative self-talk and low self-esteem. 
 
The cultural image of "the perfect man" is usually unattainable, and young men are aware that they cannot reach this ideal. This can lead to a feeling of worthlessness; that all of their efforts are useless and that, no matter what they do, they will never be worthy of admiration. They may even compare themselves to others, only furthering the feeling of inadequacy. 
 
On top of all of this, young men can also suffer from anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues that can impair their ability to express themselves and engage with peers. Without the opportunity to connect, young men often feel unable to build meaningful relationships and share their vulnerabilities, which could help them start to rebuild their self-esteem. 
 
All in all, low self-esteem in young men is a very real issue. The combination of unrealistic cultural expectations, mental health struggles, and difficulty in forming strong relationships can really take a toll. It is important to recognize these issues and offer practical help and understanding. Therapy, mentorship, and support groups can go a long way in helping young men build their self-esteem.
