Having the right amount of self-esteem is important. This means that we feel good about ourselves, have the confidence to step up when called upon, and will keep ourselves from being hurt or abused by others or by our own thoughts. When a person has the right amount of self-esteem this means they don't hesitate to participate, thinking that others are looking down on them. They take care of themselves, have the confidence to try new things, and don't get overly upset or discouraged when they do things wrong or make mistakes. It's time to give ourselves a self-esteem boost.
