Self Concept, Self Esteem, Self Worth..?

Self Concept, Self Esteem, Self Worth..?

 

The various terms used to describe how we see ourselves can get confusing. So I thought I would define each of them for you so that you know and understand the differences between them.

Our “Self Concept” is our view of our personality traits, how we look, our values, and goals. Our self concept is constantly changing, because we are constantly receiving new information.

Self Esteem is how much you value yourself. So many different things can effect your self esteem, but one that is most common is by comparing ourselves to other people and how others respond to us. When we compare ourselves to other people and find that we are lacking something, it negatively effects your self esteem. YOU are doing the damage to yourself! When other people respond to us positively, we are more likely to develop positive self esteem.

Self Worth is defined as the sense of one’s own value or worth as a person. Meaning that all of the unique qualities that make you who you are contribute to your self worth. Self worth can also be damaged by comparing ourselves to other people. Because, we are so unique, which is why we shouldn’t compare ourselves to anyone else but who we were yesterday. Because there is NO ONE who can compare!
