Self-Esteem describes a person’s ability to describe their personal opinion of themselves.
People may describe themselves positively or negatively depending on a wide range of factors including their age; their gender; their weight or height; their sense of identify; their sense of belonging; or even whether they appreciate themselves.
During our lives, people can describe themselves more positively or more negatively. For this reason, people can experience periods of low self-esteem, healthy self-esteem and excessive self-esteem.
