Top 30 Quotes on Self-Esteem.

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Self-Esteem is an individual’s subjective evaluation of your own worth. It is your overall opinion of yourself, how you feel about yourself, your abilities, and your limitations. Healthy self-esteem makes you feel good about yourself while low self-esteem leads to self-criticism, anxiety, and low self-confidence.

 Canadian–American psychotherapist Nathaniel Branden defined self-esteem in his book- The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem:

Self-esteem, fully realized, is the experience that we are appropriate to life and to the requirements of life. More specifically, self-esteem is:

1.   confidence in our ability to think, confidence in our ability to cope with the basic challenges of life; and

2.   confidence in our right to be successful and happy, the feeling of being worthy, deserving, entitled to assert our  needs and wants, achieve our values, and enjoy the fruits of our efforts.
