The ABC's Of Self-Esteem
Want to improve your self-esteem? It's as easy as ABC-123!
So, what exactly does it mean to have high "self-esteem? It’s having confidence in one’s own worth or abilities. Self-esteem is important because it heavily influences your choices and decisions.
When you value yourself and have high self-esteem, it makes you feel secure, valuable and worthy. You have positive, healthy relationships with others and feel confident about your abilities. You’re also much more open to learning and acquiring new skills. Self-esteem affects most aspects of your life. Loving yourself, caring for yourself, creating boundaries and maintaining a healthy, realistic view of yourself is not about self-indulgence; it’s about self-preservation. It’s about learning to love and respect yourself — faults and all.
