The term ‘self-esteem’ is used to describe a person’s sense of self-worth or personal value. Basically, self-esteem is how you think about yourself !
People with good self-esteem tend to have belief and confidence in their own ability and value. They can pursue their goals and have a positive outlook on life in general.
However, poor self-esteem is at the centre of many difficulties and can be the root cause of some mental health problems. Often we hold negative beliefs and thoughts about our self-worth and personal value and this can affect how we feel and what we do.
Therefore it is very important to tackle our self-esteem and negative thinking to help us feel better and improve our mental well being.
