Healthy self-esteem is having an accurate and balanced self-view. Low self-esteem is feeling inferior to others. There are some people that we may consider as having superior self-esteem. Those are the people that are often arrogant and self-indulgent and demand entitlement.

Self-esteem may be described as your subjective sense of overall personal value or worth. It describes your level of confidence in your abilities. Healthy self-esteem can affect your motivation, your mental health, and your overall quality of life.

Self-esteem is liking yourself and believing that you deserve life and love and valuing your own thoughts, feelings, interests, and goals. How you value yourself is significant in how you allow others to treat you. When you are extremely critical of yourself, you are telling others that it’s ok to treat you disrespectfully.

There are many learned rationales for devaluing ourselves. The key is to learn skills to recognize those behaviors and change them to healthy ways of valuing ourselves. You may begin with having a valued interest in yourself: what makes you happy, challenge your self-downing thoughts, say positive things to yourself, live in the present and be understanding of your past, stop comparing yourself to others (you are you), etc..

Cognitive Behavioral therapy is one of the most effective treatments for learning self-appreciation. CBT is based on the theory that what we think and how we act directly influences the way we feel. By altering thinking that is distorted, and behavior that is not productive to our needs, we can change our emotions and our lives.
