"I've enough low self-esteem to get me to where I want to be" from The Showman is attributed to Jimmy Iovine and not Bono.  Which is interesting as Bono doesn't publicly look like he has low self-esteem very often if at all.
One love, One blood, One life;
You got to do what you should.
One life; With each other
Sisters, Brothers
One life; But we're not the same
We get to carry each other, Carry each other

I believe every writer has low self esteem ... whether you see it or not. Most writers need to have that self doubt and to lose themselves in their own mind

I get more from hearing Adam or Larry talk, more than Bono these days. Bono just comes out with the same stories all the time. He is like a parrot. Adam gives a more insightful interview

Actually, I would argue Bono does in fact have low self esteem which is partly why he has created such a big persona for himself.

I agree with the low self-esteem part.  It sounds as though Bono had a quite critical and authoritarian father, which you never truly get over.  He does a lot of over-compensation in my opinion and shows a very strong need to be liked.  But I love him, warts and all.

If Bono does have Self Esteem issues, I reckon maybe that is what is behind the shades. I struggle with self esteem too. I cant look anyone in the eye when talking......unless i have my shades on. I somehow feel more confident to do it, knowing i cant bee seen doing it
