Why bother self-esteem?


And yes, Self-esteem bothers a lot!!!

Most of us do not spend much time or energy understanding the true level of self-esteem.

We do not prioritize that many a time, and that’s why, we are most of the time headed to, undesirable situations like:

  • You are successful, but it never feels like enough
  • You might never think that you’re precious and will always blame yourself for little crumbs.

So, here are a few simple and better habits that can make you feel remarkable.

  • Hangout with the closest circle – Sometimes, the physical environment and best-liked people can drastically change mood swings and emotions. Make sure, the burden in your mind and heart reduces after the hangout
  • Write it out – Note down every single accomplishment of yours, in your daybook. And whenever you see it, you come to know that you’ve made it!
  • No more analogies!! - Never compare yourself with someone else, and understand that everybody has a unique potential. Some expose and some don’t!
  • Be definite – Learn to be very assertive. It simply means you need to stay strong, stubborn, and stable in your points

“Value yourself! you are secure! you are worthwhile!”

Have a positive relationship with others and feel confident about your abilities. 

You should always be open to learning and feedback, so this can help you acquire and master new skills. 


Self-esteem impacts your decision-making process, your relationships, your emotional health, and your overall well-being. It also influences motivation, as people with a healthy, positive view of themselves understand their potential and may feel inspired to take on new challenges.

Self-esteem is known to protect people from potential fear that arises from the prospect of death (terror management theory). Self-esteem helps motivate people to achieve their goals – high self-esteem leads to coping in situations and low self-esteem leads to avoidance.

Self-esteem enables students to handle setbacks with ease. Instead of being crippled by failure, resilient children get up quickly, learn from their mistakes, and try again. They accept that failure is a part of life and take more chances as a result - which makes them even more successful later in life

This helps instill a quality in use that ensures we do not give up till we succeed. Similarly, self-confidence instills optimism in us. People who have self-confidence are not lucky, they are smart. They do not rely on others to achieve success, they rely on their abilities to do that.

When we have healthy self-esteem, we tend to feel positive about ourselves and about life in general. It makes us better able to deal with life's ups and downs. When our self-esteem is low, we tend to see ourselves and our life in a more negative and critical light.
