If we have low self esteem it's because people treat us as if we should enjoy our work so much we don't need to be paid.
Unfortunately, I find that happens within any creative field. It's "art," so it must not be worth as much. There are people who recognize the value of a good writer, though. And the others (we've all run into them) should be threatened with legal action. Or at least told where to shove it.
