Self Esteem

5 May 2023

Self-esteem refers to how you feel about yourself (inside and out), including what you value in yourself and how you relate to others. It is also linked to how you believe others perceive, treat, and value you. This is why people who have been in abusive situations or have experienced trauma (especially as children) are more likely to suffer from low self-esteem both now and in the future.
Self-esteem isn't dependent entirely on one thing or set of thoughts. Instead, a person's self-esteem is comprised of your perception of all the things that define you as a person, such as your personality, accomplishments, talents, capabilities, background, experiences, relationships, and physical body, as well as how others perceive you.

High Self Esteem
High self-esteem means having a positive attitude toward yourself. This does not imply that you like everything about yourself or believe you are perfect. On the contrary, even those with high self-esteem can be self-critical and have aspects of themselves that they are less proud of or happy with than others. High self-esteem can change depending on the situation.

High self-esteem is essentially a state of mind that allows you to celebrate your strengths, challenge your weaknesses, and feel good about yourself and your life. It allows you to put daily ups and downs into perspective because you value, trust, and respect yourself at your core. High self-esteem also enables you to recognize that everything isn't about you, allowing you to avoid taking everything personally and being overly reactive. Strong self-esteem allows you to see beyond yourself and feel secure in your place in the world.
