Self-Esteem: What Is Self-Esteem and What Is Not

When the subject of self-esteem is raised, the air suddenly becomes dense with the negative connotation that the topic suggests. It has become a deep-seeded issue that resonates with the majority; we can find solidarity in the fact that we never feel whole. Therein lies the problem. It has become normal to feel obsolete. Although highly influenced by external factors, our level of self-worth can come from nowhere but within ourselves.

Self-esteem issues effect our everyday performance, and basically just every moment of everyday. How you perceive yourself is transmitted through every action you take, every expression you make. You can vastly improve your quality of life by positively altering the way that you view yourself, and realize that you’re awesome, and so deserving of love and the rewards from your success. Changing your thought process is next to impossible, but it can be done. And it is quite literally, a labor of love.

Here are a few Lifehack articles (written by yours truly) covering different facets of self-esteem.
