Putting someone down with name calling reveals your own low self-esteem.
The first place where self-esteem begins its journey is within us.
If someone does not consider those around them to be valuable and hold only themselves in high regard, they too have a very bad self-esteem.
Putting yourself first means you will never be last!
Genuine self esteem – please understand this – genuine self esteem is not competitive or comparative. Genuine self esteem isn’t expressed by self-glorification at the expense of others, or by trying to make yourself superior to everyone else, or diminishing others in order to elevate yourself. Arrogance, boastfulness, the overestimation of your abilities, reflect low self esteem, even though we’re often encouraged to believe the opposite. In human beings, joy in the simple fact of existence is a core meaning of healthy self esteem. Thus understood, how can you possibly have too much of it?
Our own self-esteem is something we can actually twist in whatever way we want.
A person today who seems to have a great sense of self-esteem has his or her childhood days to thank for it.
Whatever you lay your hands on, self-esteem is visible.
A good self-esteem level is mostly dependant on how we value ourselves without any bias.
But there were certain moments in life that forever defined one as a person - in one's own estimation, anyway. And one's own self esteem, when all was said and done, was of far more importance than the fickle esteem of one's peers.
