Why is it so hard to overcome low self esteem?

I've had low self esteem for a very long time! I have been called ugly and I've also been called pretty. I also suffered verbal abuse from an ex. How do I overcome this?

Thank you everyone. Today I posted a photo of myself on Facebook with no filter. It made me feel so proud of myself. I usually don't post photos without filters. Thanks everyone!!
