Positive self-talk can help they say.
I think that requires talking in the mirror.

Never helped for me. I can't even look in the mirror tho

Tell ur self how hot u are XD well maybe
Actually I think it's important to examine why you feel so low about yourself
what do you think is actually wrong with you and is it genuinely true. Is it the influence of other people or is purely down to beliefs you hold.

I think it's like that for everyone until they find a good rhythm.  That's just how it works.  Of course you're going to struggle and fall down.  The important thing is that you get back up and keep trying.

I think improving self esteem is a combination of inner awareness and taking action. You have to realise that the voice telling you that you are not good enough or that you are a loser, or that everyone else belongs to a team you cannot join, ... is misguided, you have been conditioned to think that through your experiences (your upbringing, how people tend to treat you, ...) and you hold on to those thoughts because they are the only thing you know, but they are not objective. You then have to take action, do things you are afraid to do, ask for things you think you are not entitled to ask for, ... Challenge those thoughts and the fear that comes with them. The new data will change your view of the world.
I wrote the book "Assertiveness: Build Confidence, Earn Respect and Take Control" to explain the process of becoming more self aware and self confident, it's on the kindle store
