I don't know - it is not a universally recognized term, and would be mainly used by psychoanalysts, who don't always have widely acepted and firm definitions for the terms they use.
Broadly, it would probably mean something that has happened has wounded or hurt your own view of yourself, your self-image and self-esteem.
