  • According to Seligman, ‘self-esteem is your overall evaluation of your worth as a person, high or low, based on all positive and negative self-perceptions. It is the respect one has for himself.
  • A person may have various levels of self-esteem, e.g. a girl may have high self-esteem about her intelligence but may have low self-esteem about her looks.
  • People with high self-esteem are positive, responsible, genuine, and committed to their goals. They have strong internal values and forgiving nature. They continuously seek to improve themselves.
  • On the other hand, people with low self-esteem are negative, need externally oriented goals, and are impatient with themselves as well as others. They are unhappy and experience anxiety. They may also have a superiority or inferiority complex.
  • Some of the ways to improve one’s self-esteem are as follows:
  • Eliminate negative self-talk 
  • Recognize your strengths 
  • Recognise self-worth 
  • Accept mistakes 
  • Accept rejection
