Self-Esteem is the picture we have about ourselves. It’s the combination of unconscious and conscious beliefs that we believe to be true about who we are. Self-Esteem comes from the decisions we made about what we saw happening around us and to us. We start to compare ourselves to others and thus may define who we are by what we see in them good or bad.
Self-Esteem is related to how we feel about ourselves. Our feelings tell us a lot about ourselves. They are neither right nor wrong, they just are. How we feel and how we deal with these feelings greatly impact on how we feel about ourselves positive or negative. What you THINK about your problems has a significant impact on what you FEEL and what you DO /REACT to handle all your life issues (friends, family, school, leisure, etc.).
