In all the stories, someone with a traumatic past has a tough time with future relationships - particularly healthy ones.  In all the stories, the damaged person is adored in spite of their own perception of relationship unworthiness.

I have damage.  I have plenty of damage.  And plenty of fear that I am too damaged to have a healthy relationship.  And at least three relationships that my damage has destroyed.

Would I be more lovable if I had low self-esteem?

the thing to remember about "all the stories" is that they're fiction, and often the authors are idealizing events/character actions - RL doesn't necessarily work that way.

shorter - no, adding low self-esteem wouldn't really solve any of the other stuff
