Why Self Esteem is Important?

Am I good enough? This is a question we might ask ourselves a lot. Your answer to this question will tell you how you value yourself or your self esteem. Self esteem is how much you value yourself and how important you think you are. Self esteem affects your body, mind, thoughts and relationships. This not only influences your thoughts but also your actions and reactions. Here are a few reasons why high self esteem is important.

1. Handling Criticism

If you have a high self esteem it is very likely that you will be able to face criticism. It is not an easy task to face criticism positively, especially if we are being criticized by someone of our same position. No matter which position we hold it is good to be criticized by others. This will help us to modify our skills and also will help us to learn new things. Whenever a person is criticizing you think of it as something which will make you better.

2. Overall Wellness

If you have high self esteem it will help you balance your mood and emotions which will inturn boost your physical health and energy. Only if you honor yourself will you be able to make choices that will nourish your body and mind. You will also value your safety, your feelings and your health. This will force you to take wise decision on food,  exercise or setting your priorities.

3. Make you happier

Studies show that people with high self esteem are happier. High self esteem will help you to undertake difficult tasks and persevere during tough times. This in turn will ultimately make you proud of your capability and make you happy.

You are amazing and lucky so be proud of yourselves.
