Necessity of self esteem

People do feel unworthy, neglected and ignored. Self-castigating behaviour is seen in every individual. But for some it affects their performance. Their work, study, and in other social settings.  They fail to regard themselves as worthy. Our personality is warped.

Self-esteem is the values I place upon myself. It is the evaluation of your worth and capabilities. According to Branden, self-esteem is the sum of self-confidence (a feeling of personal capacity) and self-respect (a feeling of personal worth). It is pertinent that children and adults alike have a healthy self-esteem — it’s a means by which we can succeed in our personal growth and success.

Firmer self-confidence and feeling of self-worth gives us the foundation for a bigger, meaningful and an enriched life. We cannot, therefore, underestimate the importance of self-esteem. It impacts our lives in multitude. Perchance, self-esteem is the yardstick that measures our success.

Having good self-esteem gives you vigour and vitality — an addition of value to your personality. It’s like adding value to your product. The product being yourself. The idea that you are a worthy member of family, societies and nation is an indicator that you will not falter in your duties and responsibilities — then you are not afraid. When you think you are worthy, you become a creative source of being. You exude radiance. With good self-esteem you innovate, and you create.

When you believe that you are worthy of happiness, you feel worthy of respect. Most of the time the happiness we seek remain elusive. I have heard many a tale saying, that they deserve bad things. Blaming yourself and remaining adamant, that you deserve the worse is ludicrous. How do you alter this mentality?

We need to take a deep look into those thoughts that we feed our mind. Feeling good about ourselves is also a practice — something that we can learn. We need to believe that we are worthy of happiness. These shift in mental faculties will lead to more enriched life. Believe me, you thwart your success. Don’t stonewall yourself to not believing.

I have friends who feel pessimistic about everything — as if the whole world is against them. That is a powerful mentality because they don’t think they can do it. As you sow so shall you reap. As simple as that. But we complicate it. Our troubles are self-inflicted. Yes, we are vulnerable. Yes, we falter. Yes, we fail. But failure is never fatal and success never final. What matter most is that you stand up when you fall down.

Do not feed your mind with negative thoughts. Be positive. I am sure that much we can do. Circumstances don’t control you. Your family’s condition is your least of worries. Your morale, how you view yourselves have a greater impact than any other things combined. In totality, it’s your mentality that is going to propel you to success or in an opposite direction.

Your self-esteem is not innate. As a child, we were not afraid. We felt that we could do almost everything. I did. There were no limitations but as we grow older we have become like any other human beings; self-negating, conscious and castigating.

The cure to our low self-esteem is to belief that we are worthy. It gives you confidence and morale boost. It gives you the wheel of your life. As Nathaniel Branden wrote about self-esteem importance: “Positive self-esteem is important because when people experience it, they feel and look good, are effective and productive, and they respond to others and themselves in healthy, positive, growing ways. Know, that they are lovable and capable and care about themselves and other’s. They do not have to build themselves up by tearing others down or by patronizing less competent people”.

Don’t lose faith in yourself. Belief.
