Self esteem issuse need help!

Hello, my name is Kristen and I have low self esteem. I've had it all my life and I feel like as I get older it just gets worse. Low self esteem peaks its ugly head in every aspect of my life. I try and try to eat healthier and exercise but when emotions over come me I tend to give up the exercise and eat my emotions then I give up. I am stuck in a job that I'm not happy with so I apply for different jobs but when it comes to interview time I don't have the confidence to show the interviewers that they should give me a chance. I've built up a great resume working in the industry I am in but sometimes when I go to an interview it's almost like I don't believe what is written down so why should they give me a chance I wonder why they don't call back for a second interview. On top of that, I'm so confused on what I want to do with my life, I've been thinking of going back to school for what? not sure but I never went to college and it's been 14 years since I set foot in a school environment. I'm a newlywed and married to an amazing man who loves me for exactly who I am. Low self esteem has affected me with dating. I never had many offers for dates, no guys chacing after me so I figured it was b/c I'm not skinny enough or pretty enough those years of not dates or having enough confidence to "put myself out there" really was a low blow to the self esteem but deep down I felt even if I wasn't those things I was a good person with a great personality and some day a guy would see that and then I met my husband who truly just loves me for me but still the low self esteem is still there sometimes I feel like I'm not good enough for him, maybe he wishes he married someone else and now we're trying to have a baby I really do not want my self esteem to spill over into my child's life. I want to be a good mom,parent and role model for my child. I don't want my low self esteem to ruin my future or my marriage, my career. I'm 32 years old SO my question is it too late for me? Have I had self esteem issues for so long that I'll never change? I want too I just have to believe I can and honestly I don't know how

It's never too late...

It's always never too late Kristen...

Self-esteem can always be found deep inside you, you just have to look from within. What's there not to like about you? If you found out, then change it. But before you do, ask yourself, "does these attributes really affect my self-esteem?" If not, then it means that you're great as you are.

We cannot please everyone but we can always please ourselves.

Everything starts when you learn to trust yourself.

God bless you!
