There are several advantages of maintaining a positive self-esteem. Children with strong self-esteem tend to respect themselves and think of themselves as good friends and effective solvers for issues. They establish a healthy love for who they are but still understand that there are areas in which they will continue to evolve and improve. Children believe like they have good qualities and talents that they can give to other individuals with a strong self-esteem and they often know they are capable of being valued and embraced by those including family and friends.
They believe their fair share of wealth, such as food , housing, affection, leisure, loyalty and integrity, is inherently valuable. Children with a strong self-esteem are more inclined to be content, make and retain good relationships and persevere in working through tough partnership circumstances. They can see difficult circumstances as chances to pursue something different, even though they don’t excel entirely. Since they enjoy themselves and feel they are capable of being provided for by others, they are less likely to live in unhealthy or exploitative circumstances than those with a lower self-esteem. They are much more inclined to take physical and mental care of themselves, and to engage in demanding and laborious tasks such as finishing their schooling or mastering a profession.
By comparison, it appears to equate a low (or poor) self-esteem with more detrimental outcomes. Young people with low self-esteem don’t feel like they have several good, dignified qualities and might feel insecure, humiliated, anxious, depressed or angry with themselves. Because of this, they may think they don’t merit other people’s simple stuff like food , housing, attention, patience, affection or integrity.
They may act in destructive, self-defeating ways which end up reinforcing their own bad opinion. They might be telling themselves, for example, that they are not clever enough to pass a math examination. Since they don’t think they should receive a successful score, they don’t invest any attention or time into studying for the exam. They can often focus anxiously on thoughts of how poorly they are doing.
They then miss the exam, more because of a lack of concerted research effort and nervous anxiety than because of a lack of ability. This disappointment is therefore viewed wrongly, but with a great weight of emotional “reality” as further evidence that they are really poor at math. In the aftermath of the perception of disappointment, more attempts to study mathematics are often prevented. This form of negative reinforcement loop is often referred to as a self-fulfilling prophecy of self-defeating thoughts and actions.
Young adults with low self-esteem are less likely to be happier than their counterparts with better self-esteem, and are more likely to experience mental and social difficulties. Children with poor self-esteem are less inclined to persevere in stressful times, since they believe they lack the potential to remain successful under challenging environments and thus give up too fast. They may be more apt to be abused or manipulated by others, whether they may not truly feel they deserve to be handled properly, or because they think they lack the requisite skills to change or avoid their condition.
Children with an excessively elevated self-esteem focused on a feeling of selfish superiority rather than real success often experience challenges. Such children may complacently see themselves as being more ideal and worthy of access to resources than other children, culminating in them feeling themselves narcissistic and eventually becoming excluded and ignored by peers. They can ignore and then refuse to take advantage of positive social feedback that other children may use to their advantage to recognize areas for effective development or improvement. They can show “externalization,” which is to suggest they wrongly believe that all the issues they face are triggered by other people’s shortcomings, and that they have no obligation to improve.
Children with high self-esteem may often turn to manipulating others when they feel they should be able to control others and handle them as they want. Children who don’t develop out of this fragile, insecure trend will always go on to experience less achievement than their truly high self-esteem peers, at least in terms of their potential to shape enduring and emotionally fulfilling romantic relationships.
