Thank you =)
By my own definition, self-esteem is the foundation on how we view, feel, and judge not only ourselves but our enviornment. An online dictionary defines insecurity as "not confident or certain; uneasy; anxious." By that definition, insecurity is a symptom
of low self-esteem.
For example, I view, feel and judge myself as inadequate, inferior and worthless. An insecurity of mine is speaking infront of others because I feel inadequate, inferior and worthless. When the foundation is cracked, decayed and broken then the emotional and mental growth of an individual will be limited and discouraged.
I hope this helps!
