Our self-esteem has a large impact on how we live our life, our emotional stability, and our overall level of happiness. Self-esteem is how we feel about ourselves, our own personal morale, but it is also affected by how others interact with us, and our perceptions of other peoples’ feelings about us. Low self-esteem can lead to feelings of worthlessness, make us avoid social situations, and lead to clinical depression.
It is also important to not allow your self-esteem to be exclusively determined by what other people think about you. You should allow yourself time for personal introspection and self evaluation. If you are satisfied with who you are as a person you will maintain a high level of self-esteem. If you see things that you don’t like about yourself, you can work on those things to become better as a person. Setting reachable goals and working towards them will give you a sense of accomplishment. Reaching personal goals is a great way to improve self esteem.
