= 自卑過甚、自暴自棄, 過於自卑而不知自重
1. Sell oneself short
2. Degrade oneself
3. Belittle oneself
Don’t sell yourself short. Be all that you can be.
Don’t degrade yourself by cheating and telling lies.
Never belittle yourself by lowering your standards.
There is a difference between 妄自菲薄 & 低估.
妄自菲薄 indicates someone with extremely low self esteem (過於自卑而不知自重).
"Sell oneself short" would be a best description for it.
However, 低估 (估計得過低。含有輕視的意味 - 國語字典的解釋) does not necessarily state someone with extremely low self esteem. I can underestimate myself but I don't necessarily 妄自菲薄.
