Is is true that self-esteem is something that you must have? I mean is there any cure for low self-esteem?I've been thinking that self-esteem affects our relation with your friends, having a girlfriend or boyfriend, appreciated at your work, get a good grades, and to be successful. I realized that it is really something essential you need to begin within every path. Are you born with low self-esteem?

I don't think anyone is born with low self-esteem. A lot of what her esteem becomes depend on how she was brought up, her environment, etc. I do agree with you that it is very important to have self-esteem. It is intrinsically linked with confidence. How are you going to face the world without sufficient self-confidence?

Exactly, it's hard to stand-up without confidence. You feel like you can't depend on yourself when you don't have it. Confidence gaves you the motivation to grow as a person.

self esteem includes a person's subjective appraisal of himself or herself as intrinsically positive or negative to some degree.you should change your attitude towards yourself first .
