Here again is one of the plagues that plague our society: self-esteem. How do you feel about yourself? What do you think of yourself? How do you judge yourself? What is your own assessment? What value do you place on yourself? These questions are essential, and their answers are crucial if you want to take charge of your life.
Self-esteem is a person’s perception of their own worth. The way we look at ourselves and the value we place on ourselves affect our relationships with others.
Self-esteem is a personal matter. Your judgment of yourself is either negative or positive, uplifting or demeaning. All in all, we have two types of self-esteem.
The Individual With Low Self-Esteem
– He spends his time criticizing himself.
– He’s never satisfied with himself.
– It is easily affected by the criticism of others, whether it is founded or not.
– By devaluing himself, he suffers from chronic indecision, especially when he is animated by extreme fear.
– The fear of making mistakes makes him worried and worried …
– He always feels guilty about ruminating on his past mistakes. He ends up keeping in himself the bad memories of his past. He has difficulty forgiving himself.
– His low self-esteem makes him envious, he always feels frustrated for no apparent reason, and he gets irritated easily.
The Individual With High
– He firmly believes in his qualities and potential, therefore a good dose of self-confidence.
– He is always ready to defend himself in the face of adversity.
– He is more flexible in making decisions and making choices
– He is always carried forward regardless of his past. He is not afraid of the future.
– He doesn’t hesitate to concentrate on solving a problem because he feels capable of doing it.
– He gives himself consideration and also recognizes that of others.
– In his collaboration with others, he resists manipulation.
– He is open-minded without ignoring his own opinions.

Note: This concept is closely related to that of self-confidence. The difference between self-esteem and self-confidence is how it feels and what it does. Self-esteem is more of a feeling, whereas self-confidence is more than that. It involves actions.
