You may hear the people around you talk about having high or low self-esteem, but what exactly is self-esteem?
Self-Esteem: One's belief in their own self-worth and how they see themselves. It relates to self-love and confidence.
Where does Self-Esteem Come from?
The people around you such as your friends, family and teachers can have an effect on how you feel about yourself. For example, if your friends compliment you, you begin to feel good about yourself. However, when someone says something harsh to you, you begin to feel bad about yourself.
