What's your definition of "self-esteem"?
I've been reading a lot of replies in this group, and I sort of feel like we may have a variety of opinions on what self-esteem actually is.
So how do you define self-esteem?
I'm writing an article on self-esteem, and I found this image,
and I thought, That's not what self-esteem is. It's not "loving yourself" or repeating mantras like "I'm the best." And then I found this one, which I totally disagree with.
So I'm wondering as moms, when we say we want to raise our daughters with healthy self-esteem, what do we really mean by that? What are we actually talking about?
