What is Self Esteem?
There are lots of ways to define self esteem, but a self esteem definition we can use is that self esteem is regarding yourself as highly as you regard others. For example, if you see yourself as generally better than others, that would be a little narcissistic. But when you don’t see yourself as being as good as other people, then you have low self esteem
The foundation of our self image and self esteem is developed both during childhood and throughout our life experiences. It is also shaped by our self-talk, the messages we give ourselves throughout the day. Are you your best cheerleader, or worst critic? Do you encourage and support yourself? or tell yourself that you’re not smart enough, handsome enough, thin enough?
Improving Low Self Esteem
Improving low self esteem is an important first step to finding happiness and learning how to gain self confidence. Good self esteem also helps you to have healthier relationships and learn assertiveness skills.
Transforming your low self esteem into self confidence will help you to:
