It is common sense that, when speaking of self-esteem, one would consider the person’s self-image. That is, how they see themselves, and how they perceive themselves in general to be the key concept to consider. Ego, on the other hand, is the more egotistical side of human psychology. People with high levels of ego tend to have high self-esteem. So the debate between the two is often discussed as to whether or not self-esteem is more important than ego.
From a psychological standpoint, people with higher “self esteem” would be able to make informed and well-informed decisions regarding anything, and would be more willing to accept responsibility for their actions, even if they do not necessarily choose to make them. In fact, you would probably be surprised at what I mean here. Let’s say you were an employer interviewing a potential employee. If your potential employee had a bad attitude, filled with self-pity and arrogance, then you would definitely want to avoid hiring that person. Now this may seem rather unfair to you, but if you were the employer, you have every right to think so.
From a psychological standpoint, however, it would be equally important for you not to give into your feelings of self-worthlessness, or lack of self-respect. That would only lead to irrational behaviour from your perspective. In other words, the person with higher self-esteem would make better decisions and have better reasoning skills. They would also have better social skills and so on. This is because a person with higher self-esteem would be more rational and realistic in their thinking.
This is not to say, however, that a person with low self-esteem or lack of self-respect need not learn to have good judgment. That would be an absolute necessity. But what it would be most important for them to learn is to be reasonable. This may sound strange to some people. You see, being reasonable involves being practical and realistic. Just as important, though, is that a person with higher self-esteem would be able to recognize when they are being overly critical of themselves, and when they are being less than empathetic about other people’s needs and problems.
It would also be important for the person with higher self-esteem, to develop an excellent sense of empathy. Empathy is relating to others on their level. It is not so much knowing how they feel, as being able to put their feelings into words, and having the ability to understand what another person is feeling, or thinking. This is something that not everybody possesses. But to increase your self-esteem and your sense of self-respect, it would be important for you to develop this skill.
It would also be important for the person with higher self-esteem to make sure that they are always looking in the best possible light. If you look down on yourself in any way, it would negatively affect your self-esteem. This is because you will begin to see yourself as a failure. Instead of viewing yourself as someone with tremendous potential, you will be more likely to view yourself as someone with low capabilities. If you were to ever develop a negative outlook towards yourself, you would never have a good sense of self-esteem.
To further increase your self-esteem, it would be important for the person with higher self-esteem to spend some time doing charity work. One of the reasons that it is good to have a good sense of self-esteem is that it will increase your willingness to help others. By spending time doing charity work, you will be putting yourself in a position where you will be doing something that you know will have a very positive effect on other people. For example, if you were to donate money to a shelter for abused or neglected children, you would instantly become more trustworthy and someone that the shelter would want to help. By having high self-esteem, you would also be more likely to volunteer your time and skills to help other people. This could have a very significant impact on the lives of these children.
If you were to discover one area in which you had been lacking lately, it would be wise to begin working on it right away. It is important for you to get off on a better foot if you are going to have any chance of ever reaching your goals. By learning how to better manage your self-esteem, you will give yourself a great advantage over others. When you are able to do this, you will find that you are much happier, more successful, and have a better quality of life overall.
