Improving Self-Esteem

By January 15, 2013

Follow me on:

Self-esteem is a term used to describe the way in which a person values oneself. Healthy self-esteem involves a personal attitude of self-love, respect, and acceptance. A person with high self-esteem values their strengths, accepts their weaknesses, and possesses overall feelings of fulfillment.

On the other hand, people with poor self-esteem tend to feel dissatisfied and do not value their self-worth. People with low self-esteem are also more prone to suffer from medical and mental health conditions. Some common issues for people with deflated self-esteem include headaches, depression, and anxiety.

Low self-esteem can be a real problem for people with panic disorder. However, there are ways to boost self-esteem to start feeling more confident and satisfied.
