How to improve my self-esteem?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , Self esteem reflects a person's overall emotional evaluation of his or her own worth. It is a judgment of oneself as well as an attitude toward the self. It is your judgement about your own abilities and negatives. It also depends on your overall attitude. If you have negative attitude you will always analyze yourself negatively, resulting lack of self esteem. You need to have Self-Esteem building therapy. You may ask a private question to me with all details and some examples. I will provide you tailor made therapy suitable for you. Take care.

I'm 22 year old boy and i'm a porn addicted now porn is playing with my mind and i'm losing respect for girls I do not know how I stop this addiction, I try not to watch porn but still i'm addicted to porn. And now i'm not able to focus on my career and my study please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

At this age, your career and studies demand much attention but your distraction by porn will definitely cause a lot of problems. Sex is a very mind-and-body occupying feature and is good for the relationship if it is respected and treated so. Anything that is not responsible, respectful or functional is really unhealthy for you. You need to be careful because porn may provide great sexual entertainment but it also stokes the desire, which will then lead to desire-fulfillment and that will lead to impulses. It actually objectifies women and sex to levels that make you lose respect for them like you claim. Besides, the whole thing is dramatized to such crazy levels of performance (that is why it sells too) that you are made to feel grossly inadequate. It is really far from the reality, and these are exceptional actors, with some exceptional endowments and actions that you may even look at your own spouse (later when you get married, that is) with disdain or inadequacies that are most unfair. After you have been stimulated you are left hungry in your groin to want to fulfill your desires, and if not met soon, leaves you with that raging libido, and it can goad you to do something inappropriate. In essence, it spoils a very beautiful thing and reduces it to mere physical impulses. After some time you get disgusted when you have had too much of it; whereas natural sex will never cause that effect at all. If you have so much of sexual energy you can channelize it into activities, sports, games, and hobbies. You need to distract yourself when the drive is very strong in you, which may be so if your levels of testosterone are very high too. You need to socialize with members of the opposite sex and enjoy their company to experience the different aspects of a woman and to also feel the different aspects of sex and not get frozen in the carnal part of it alone. Sex has five different dimensions to it: there is the physical aspect, the emotional aspect, the intellectual aspect, the social aspect and finally, there is the spiritual aspect. The latter may surprise you but this is where respect and regard for women and their bodies will come up to help treat them with value. If you cultivate these dimensions of sex I am sure you will perceive women differently and with a lot of respect. Eventually, when you are in a serious relationship with a woman, you will truly enjoy the whole concept of romance and being and falling in love with the real thing: that my friend will be a different ball-game. Do not play with a poor replica of sex, and shy away from the real person and thing, which are so wholesome.

Anything chronic is bad, period.And chronic anxiety will bring in a lot of complications, both physical and psychological, because of the stress factor. In fact, any prolonged stress will cause a lot of damage to your system, including​ psychosomatic ones.

Schizophrenia - Can Biochemical Factors be the Cause Behind it?

MBBS, Diploma in Psychological Medicine, M.D Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Schizophrenia -  Can Biochemical Factors be the Cause Behind it?

Schizophrenia is a disease of the mind that is usually degenerative in nature. The complex disorder is generally characterized by symptoms, such as delusions, hallucinations (both auditory and visual) and disturbances in speech and is usually chronic in nature. The symptoms are not regular and can appear at any point of time. So it is highly possible that a person suffering from schizophrenia may sometimes bear resemblance to any other normal person and all of a sudden, might exhibit symptoms typical of Schizophrenia.

The causes of Schizophrenia include:

  1. Brain Dysfunction: Abnormalities in the cerebral cortex (the cerebrum’s outer covering that is vital in regulating consciousness) of the brain is the most common cause of this disorder. This is due to the presence of abnormally enlarged ventricles in that region. The decreased brain size owing to the enlarged ventricles is often related to the hallucinations and delusions experienced by schizophrenics.
  2. Genetic Factors: Studies have also stated ‘genetics’ to be an important cause behind this disorder. Closer the family ties, higher the risks of transmitting the disorder.
  3. Biochemical Factors: More than one neurotransmitter is being targeted by recent drugs to control schizophrenia.


Symptoms which most people do not experience normally, but are found in people diagnosed with schizophrenia are said to be positive symptoms. They are:

  1. Hallucinations: These are sensory experiences of things that do not exist outside the mind. Hallucinations usually manifest in the form of auditory or visual images.
  2. Delusions: Delusions on the other hand are false beliefs one has about oneself. Delusions are of 3 major types:
    • Grandeur: Wherein the person imagines himself to be a famous personality
    • Persecution: The belief that somebody somewhere is plotting against you and the whole world is going to get you.
    • Control: The belief that a larger force, let’s say a witch, a demon or even a duck for that matter is controlling your actions.

These positive symptoms generally respond well to medications.
In addition to this, schizophrenics think and speak differently than the rest of the society. They jump from idea to idea, lose track of speech mid-way and often speak in fragmented and haphazardly joined sentences. They are, in fact, unable to fix their attention on anything in particular.
Examples of the most common negative symptoms include:

  1. The flat effect: The individual basically shows no facial expression and always has a flat emotionless mask on while staring into space. At times, they have inappropriate reactions to situations. Example - they might laugh at somebody's death and cry ad get angry when something good happens. 
  2. Avolition: This condition occurs when the individual just sit for hours doing nothing as well as behaves in a way lacking any motivation or enthusiasm.

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Hi lybrate-user, it seems you have anxiety and negative thoughts which are irrational. Practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Also, we need to do cognitive behavior therapy to help you with negative irrational thoughts. Don't worry at all you can overcome this with right treatment. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

FEELING ANXIOUS? MODIFY YOUR THOUGHTS AND FIND PEACE AND FREEDOM
Pradeep was a loving husband, but he always felt anxious that his marriage wouldn't last too long. He dreamt of losing his job, a bad divorce case, children separating from him and him living alone. He would sweat, have sleepless nights and often get up breathless from his nightmares. He made sure that he dropped his wife to work everyday and in office he would do anything to please his seniors. As a result he would be tired, didn't get time to relax and became a pain for his wife. This made him more anxious as his boss would often load him with work and his wife fought with him for family time.
But the divorce never happened because he had a good relationship with not only his wife but even with his in laws and on top of that he had a flourishing career. If Pradeep had only recognised that his in laws loved him for his soft and gentle nature and his wife loved him for his caring and supportive attitude, and that his company had recently given him a promotion out of turn, he wouldn't have needed to fret so much about a broken marriage. And he needn't have experienced domestic strife and his boss's wrath.
Anxious people often misdiagnose the risk in a situation and feel a constant threat to themselves and their wellbeing, which often lands them in more trouble as they try to avoid feeling anxious at all costs by avoiding situations and behaving in a manner which creates more anxiety.
Do you tend to believe and think in similar ways and act which makes you further anxious? Check below for dysfunctional beliefs and thoughts and a more mature way of modifying your thoughts which can help you do a realistic risk assessment and efficient behaviours leading to peace and freedom.

1. I KNOW WHATS GOING TO HAPPEN:
Most anxious people deny holding this belief However many people spend their entire lives worrying about future predictions they have made which never come true. They have wrongly predicted the future with such conviction that they ruin any chance they may have had of finding peace of mind. Think about the things that have worried you over the years. The things you got most worked up about? How many of them actually came true no matter how convinced you were that they would? Anxiety is almost always based upon unconscious fortune telling.
A more helpful belief may be:
I can make an educated guess - a projection about what is likely to happen and then make plans to avoid catastrophe. Then I can stop worrying about it.

2. IF I THINK THEN IT HAS TO BE TRUE:
Once again most people deny holding this belief. On a conscious, rational level they know that thoughts are only thoughts. Unconsciously however anxious people become so convinced of the ‘truth' of their thoughts that they stop being able to rationalize at all.A more helpful belief may be:
I can measure my thoughts objectively against the evidence and decide whether to accept or reject them. I don't have to believe everything I consider.

3. IT IS UNBEARABLE WHEN THINGS GO WRONG
This is called catastrophic thinking and it's one of the fastest ways there is to destroy your peace of mind. After all, let's face it, things go wrong on a very regular basis. If you hold this belief then of course you're going to worry. You may be very objective in your assessment of the situation - the fact that things do often go wrong - but the way you interpret that likelihood will give rise to anxiety. It's important to get things into perspective.
A more helpful belief may be:
Things often don't turn out the way I'd like them to. However it's the little adversities in life that help me grow. Problems can be used to make me better - not bitter. I'm a resourceful human being with the ability to deal with most things so long as I think clearly about the problem and keep my anxious thoughts under control.

4. I MUST AVOID STRESS AT ALL COSTS:
Most people are surprised to learn that avoiding stress is one of the worst things we can do. Anxiety management is a skill and it takes practice. If we avoid stress we miss out on the practice and so we never learn to deal with it. What's worse, we actually lose the coping skills we already have and so, over time we become more and more anxious.
A more helpful belief may be:
Life is full of stress but this can be overcome by thinking about it logically and taking positive action to change things for the better.

5. I HAVE TO BE IN CONTROL TO BE SAFE:
This belief is not only wrong it's dangerous. Total control is impossible for anyone to achieve. There are always too many possibilities, too many things which may go wrong. If your peace of mind depends upon control you'll never stop worrying.
A more helpful belief may be:
I can control my own actions and responses to the world. That's as much as anyone can ever do. It's enough because if I can control myself (and my thoughts) I can survive and actually grow from just about anything.

6. I CAN THINGS THAT CAN'T BE CHANGED:
Unless you're superhuman you can't. Remember that anxiety is part of our natural defence mechanism. It's a call to action. It alerts us to the fact that something is wrong and gives us the opportunity to change it. It has no place in situations which cannot be changed. Nevertheless how many of us worry about things which happened in the past for example - things which can never be changed. If you worry about past events instead of planning to overcome future problems you're not only wasting your time you're destroying your quality of life and, on one level at least, asking the impossible of yourself - to change what cannot be changed.
A more helpful belief may be:
There are some things which I cannot change. It's better to concentrate upon what I can achieve instead of worrying pointlessly about the things I cannot. To put it another way:
God grant me the serenity to accept the things which cannot be changed; The courage to change the things which can be changed and the wisdom to know the difference.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It will take some time for stamina and strength to develop. You will need to gradually increase your exercise. When exercising you must preferably choose aerobic exercise and always breathe through your nostrils during exercise. For strength development you will need to do some weight training. If you push yourself too much, you will feel like vomiting. When you wo0rk out you must also do it in a place where the air is clean. Deep breathing techniques may be learne dthrough Yoga too.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. Don't worry. Still if you insist on memory problems, we can conduct online memory test. Stress, anxiety etc can be the basic reasons for your memory problems. Take care.
