Why do you think this happens? Is it prevalent among young people, or everyone? Any particular social layer? economic layer, in your experience?

Why do I think some people have low self esteem?

I know next to nothing about psychology and am really in no place to hazard any real explanation.

What do you think?

I think it's prevalent across most of society.

Why does meditation and yoga make people's egos blossom?

I think that people with a positive self image tend to make decisions that foster their well being and that decisions that foster well being tend to make ones self image more positive. A virtuous cycle?

Of course people can be wrong about how great they are or can wear that greatness with insufferable pride that makes no one want to listen to or be with them. Ego can be a boon or a curse depending how it manifests itself.

    Why do I think some people have low self esteem?

I was asking along the lines of "Is there anything you see around you that makes you wonder whether it makes people feel worse about themselves?". People often ascribe such qualities to social media, for example - for good reason.

Have you noticed something like this around yourself, in your life or others'?
