Looking for some understanding in knowing if women/young girls today could understand themselves better if they knew what the signs were and are when they don't feel good about themselves.

Women who struggle with low self-esteem tend to pay the most attention to their flaws. They feel insecure and are unable to accept compliments.
People with low self-esteem have trouble making decisions, cannot handle criticism, lack assertiveness, are shy and feel inferior in comparison to others.
