What is Self-esteem

Self-esteem is the view that you perceive about yourself. It is something that tends to go up or down throughout one’s life. Most of us experience moments of low self-esteem and this can be a perfectly normal response to external events.

However, when low self-esteem becomes a long-term habit, it can damage your relationships with others, kill your confidence, stunt your ability to assert yourself and feed a cycle of increasing frustration and unhappiness. In fact, research has shown a correlation between low self-esteem and depression.
