What happens if someone has poor body confidence

Poor body image and self-esteem can lead to various mental health and other health conditions like depression, unhealthy dieting, eating disorders, self-harm, and substance abuse.

Body image and self-esteem can directly affect a person's feelings, thoughts, and actions. If you don't like your body or a part of your body (poor body image) it will be hard for you to feel good about your whole self (positive self-esteem). The reverse is also true. If you do not value yourself (poor self-esteem), it will be hard for you to notice positive things and give your body the respect it deserves (good body image).


As you can see, the problem with negative thinking and feelings is that once you start to focus on shortcomings or problems in one area or one situation, it becomes very easy to only see problems in other areas or situations. Negative thinking has a way of leading to more negative thinking.


These are just a few examples. Good body image, self-esteem, and mental health are not about making a person feel happy all the time. They are really about respecting yourself, others, thinking realistically, and taking action to cope with problems or difficulties in healthy ways.
