Self-esteem is a term that refers to our perception of ourselves and how it manifests in our behavior. In a sense, it is the aggregate of all the thoughts that run through our mind when thinking about our abilities and how others perceive us. When people talk about good self-esteem, they are referring to a healthy level of self-confidence. Poor self-esteem, on the other hand, has to do with excessive self-criticism and fear of judgment. Pervasive poor self-esteem may result in anxiety and depression. Self-esteem is the general opinion that a person has about himself or herself. Having high but realistic self-esteem is essential to good mental health. A person’s childhood experiences generally shape his or her self-esteem. Parents, teachers, and childhood friends all have a powerful impact on how self-esteem develops. It is frequently discussed in the context of childhood development, but adults also need to have and maintain healthy self-esteem.
Everyone feels the absence of confidence and motivation at one time or another. This can be a good thing because too much confidence can be just as problematic as low confidence.
