Self-esteem is all about how you see and feel about yourself. It's the collection of thoughts and feelings you have about your abilities, your qualities, and how much you value yourself as a person.
Key aspects of self-esteem include:
  • Self-Respect: A positive self-esteem involves respecting and valuing yourself and recognizing your own worth as an individual.
  • Self-Confidence: People with healthy self-esteem tend to have confidence in their abilities and believe in their capacity to achieve their goals.
  • Self-Acceptance: Accepting both your strengths and weaknesses without excessive self-criticism.
  • Self-Love: Having a degree of affection and care for yourself, treating yourself with kindness and compassion.
  • Positive Self-Image: Having a positive view of your physical appearance and other personal attributes.
Having a healthy self-esteem is important for our mental health and how we act around others. When it's healthy, we tend to be happier, more resilient and have better relationships, all associated with greater life satisfaction.
Low self-esteem relates to feelings of inadequacy, self-doubt, and a negative self-image, which may lead to various psychological and emotional challenges.

Psychologists can help people boost your self-esteem through therapy and self-reflection for a more positive and balanced self-view.
