    Love Thyself, Too!!

    Self esteem = the esteem of your muthafukkin self (as said by Katt Williams lol). The clothes don't make you.... you make the clothes! Feel beautiful and you'll BE beautiful!! B-) I used to struggle a lot with self esteem when I was younger until one day I had an epiphany: I make...

    Rounded Corners

    It's important in the sense that it is the key to self confidence and shows that we care about ourselves despite our strengths and weaknesses. Good self esteem is a stepping stone to happiness as long as it doesn't lead to narcissism and self indulgence.

    Worthy ...

    Our core of strength ... good self esteem ... without it we cannot project the positive traits we all possess. If we believe ourselves to be worthy of love then we will be loved.  It really is that simple.  How can we not be worthy of love? ... think about it ... we...

    Very Important

    It's True!

    I used to have horrible self esteem, and it made me so depressed that I hated life. When I finally managed to start raising it and fixing it, I stated to be happier. I loved my self more, and was an all around more happy person. I now know that I'm a beautiful, sexy, wonderful...

    Having A High Self Esteem Is The Best

    I have to admit I have not always had a very good self esteem. When I was younger people would be cruel to me and try and push me around. I was quite shy and didn't have any siblings. I had many heartaches but over came most of them. I can truly say that my self esteem has gotten...

    Wish I Had Some

    Don't know quite where it went, but it seems to be gone now.  Maybe I am being punished.  I used to have plenty, probably more than my fair share, but when you live in a competitive environment it really does help you get by.  When you leave the competitive...
