Welcome to Esteemed Self, a website dedicated to illuminating the most important factors on which self-esteem depends.
If self-esteem is a measure of the mind’s health, then few subjects are of comparable urgency. Yet all too often maintaining a healthy level of self-esteem is ignored in favor of ancillary pursuits.
This website seeks to answer four questions that are fundamental to a healthy sense of self: What is self-esteem? Why is self-esteem important? What can we do to raise the level of our self-esteem? What role do others play in influencing our self-esteem?
By addressing these four questions (and more), it is my sincere hope that you will move closer to an adequate level of self-esteem. Healthy self-esteem is a lifelong pursuit. It cannot be gained easily, and once attained is not guaranteed for life. In fact, at the risk of sounding melodramatic, a healthy level of self-esteem is something that must be maintained and nurtured daily.
That is not meant to discourage you, but rather to illuminate an all-too-true reality: Self-esteem may not be easily attained, but it is fundamental to happiness, satisfaction and a fulfilling life.
Ignoring or downplaying the significance of self-esteem can detrimentally impact your life. Please browse this website to find out more about self-esteem and how it impacts every aspect of our lives.
