Most people conflict self-esteem for Ego. Self Esteem is different from Self-Ego’ Ego is your sense of self-esteem or self-importance; how you regard yourself, your idea or opinion of yourself, esp. the level of your ability, intelligence and your importance as a person. Self-esteem is how you estimate yourself, the confidence in your own worth or ability. How you feel, value and the level of belief in yourself. ⇒ How you regard and believe in yourself. ⇒ What you think about the type of person you are. ⇒ Your belief in your abilities. ⇒ The positive and negative things about you. ⇒ What you expect for yourself. Having confidence and positive believe in yourself boosts your level of self-esteem. You may struggle and may experience difficulties in life, but you will generally be able to deal with these without them having too much of a long-term negative impact on you and your beliefs and attitude about yourself will generally be positive. If you have a poor self-esteem, your beliefs about yourself will often be negative. You will tend to focus on your weaknesses or mistakes, and may find it hard to recognize the positive parts of your Personality. You may as well blame yourself for any difficulties or failures that you have.
Some factors that can contribute to low self-esteem include:
Negative Experiences – Such as bullying, difficult family relationships or having a hard time at school, can be particularly damaging for your self-esteem.
Difficulties – difficult experiences as an adult or as a child, such as; the end of a relationship, long-term illness, losing someone close to you or being unemployed, can lower your self-esteem, particularly if you experience several difficult life time events over a short period of time.
Temperament – elements of your personality, such as a tendency towards negative thinking or finding it hard to relate to other people, could contribute to a poor self-image.
Personality and Self-Ego Feeling ‘different’ – feeling like the ‘odd one out’, or under peer pressure to conform to social norms you don’t agree with and feeling of too much importance can affect the way you see yourself.
Relationships with other people – other people may feed into your low self-esteem, being negative about you or making you feel like you possess a bad or poor attitude
