Positive self-esteem means you like yourself, inside and out. It refers both to how you look and what you believe in.
Sometimes it’s easy to like who you are. You feel great when you pass a test, score a winning touchdown or tell a funny joke that makes everyone laugh.
But how do you feel about yourself when you just said something stupid or fumbled the football? You sometimes feel dumb or left out of the action. You start wishing you were someone else or that you could change how you look. You think you aren’t good in school, on the team or part of the cool crowd. This isnegative or low self-esteem.
