Self Esteem

Having a healthy self-esteem is your armor against the challenges of the world. Self-esteem can be defined as how much a person values himself or herself. One way to develop a good, healthy self-esteem is to understand what your strengths and your weaknesses are. Although this can change as you go through your life, think about at this time what do you feel you are good at and what things you are not good at. 

For this response, think about the things you feel you are really good at. For example do you think you are a math whiz, maybe your a wonderful swimmer, maybe you can make the best cookies in your family, maybe you are a great and loyal friend. Be honest with yourself, what are your strengths? How do you think you became so good at these things ( it can be more than one!)

Having a good self-esteem means knowing you are going at something and taking pride in that fact! It is not bragging.It's knowing that if someone were to make fun of you because your NOT good at something...you know what you are good at!
