Like how feeling down every so often is normal, is having quite a low self esteem one of those things that you grow out of and is normal?
Is a low self esteem as a teen normal? Watch

It is normal. Social circles and peer pressure just pile up and snide comments seem to get to teens about appearance and so on. I suppose you don't really grow out of it, you just get used to feeling down and dealing with it in a better way than you did before.

I say to an extent it's certainly widespread and common, though it's upsetting that it is.
I think the majority will grow out of it though with time.
