Self-esteem refers to how much we like, accept, and value ourselves. This usually involves a degree of evaluation, creating negative or positive views of ourselves.
Self-esteem is normally divided into two levels: high and low.
- High Self-Esteem: consists of positive view of self, confidence in our abilities, acceptance, do not worry about what others think, and optimistic point of view
- Low Self-Esteem: consists of negative view of self, lack of confidence, want to be/look like someone else, constantly worrying about what others think, pessismistic point of view
