What Is Self-Esteem, Self-Image, and Projection?
Self-esteem is the opinion you have of yourself and your perception on your value as a person. Low
(negative) self-esteem can cause people to be negative, lack motivation, and be moody. Those with higher
(positive) self-esteem like themselves, so they expect others to like them, too. They don’t harshly judge
themselves and are comfortable with who they are.
Self-confidence, on the other hand, is your belief in yourself and your abilities. Often, people with high
self-esteem also have self-confidence, although this may not always be the case. Both self-esteem and self-
confidence can translate to positive human relations because if a person feels good about himself or
herself, it is more likely he or she will be more comfortable communicating and working in teams
