Low self-esteem

Hi-
I am in my 20's and I suffer with low self-esteem. This hasn't always been how I felt about myself, in fact, my self-esteem was always stable. Never arrogant, but I felt good about myself.
I've always been reserved and enjoyed staying to myself. At the same time however, iI enjoy socializing as well.
Because of the trial and tribulations I've gone through and not really handling them as I should have, I now suffer with low self-esteem.
Lately though, I've begun to work on loving myself again. I've also begun to re-examine my priorities and interests and have chosen to limit some of my previous priorities and interests.
Anyone ever just develop low self-esteem from life's experiences?

I can't say that life experiences have affected my actual self-esteem.

I have had many trials which have affected my self-esteem, however I will always come back center sooner or later. Sometimes it takes me a couple weeks, other times several years, but I cannot let life get me down. I need to live as who I am and keep going. I think it's great you are starting to do the same.

Have a great day,
