So, what is self-esteem?

According to a Canadian-American psychotherapist Nathaniel Branden, SELF-ESTEEM IS:

  1. Confidence in our ability to think, confidence in our ability to cope with the basic challenges of life; and

  2. Confidence in our right to be successful and happy, the feeling of being worthy, deserving, entitled to assert our needs and wants, achieve our values, and enjoy the fruits of our efforts.
