In general, self-esteem is your opinion of yourself and your abilities. It can be high, low, or in-between. While everyone sometimes has questions about themselves, low self-esteem can leave you feeling confused and unmotivated.

Either way, there are lots of things you can do to boost your self-esteem.

In general, when we have strong self-esteem, we will feel positive about ourselves and life as a standard. It helps us be prepared to manage the high points and low points of life.

At a time when our self-esteem is low, we will typically view ourselves and our lives in an increasingly negative and minimal light. We also feel unprepared, ill-equipped to face the challenges that life throws at us. Unfortunately, if our self-esteem is weak, we are likely to harm it considerably further by behaving negatively.

Maybe you thought that it was hard to satisfy other individuals’ desires for you, or might even to your very own desires. Stress and troublesome life occasions, for example, sickness or deprivation, can negatively affect self-esteem.  A character can likewise have an impact.
