I came across this article the other day and it was very helpful to connect the dots for me. I currently have low self-esteem, although that has been raising bit by bit as I've been going through the Transformation Course and focusing on spiritual development. Even so, it didn't really click in for me how strongly it affects my perspective, actions, thoughts, and world-view to have low self-esteem until recently. When it's all you know, it's hard to imagine a different way of being.
