Self-esteem
        
Self-esteem reflects a person's overall evaluation or appraisal of her or his own worth.
      
      
Self-esteem encompasses:
      
Beliefs: ‘I am competent/incompetent’
Emotions: triumph/despair or pride/shame
Behavior may reflect self-esteem: assertiveness/timidity, confidence/caution
        
Self-esteem can apply specifically to a particular dimension "I believe I am a good at drawing, and feel proud of that in particular" or have global extent, "I believe I am a good person, and feel proud of myself in general".
        
        
Self-esteem can include:
        
Self-worth
Self-regard
Self-respect
Self-love
Self-integrity
        
Self-esteem is distinct from self-confidence and self-efficacy, which involve beliefs about ability and future performance.
        
        
Definition of Self-Esteem
        
Nathaniel Branden in 1969 briefly defined self-esteem as:
‘the experience of being competent to cope with the basic challenges of life and being worthy of happiness".
        
        
Branden’s (1969) description of self-esteem includes the following primary properties:
        
1.Self-esteem as a basic human need, ‘it makes an essential contribution to the life process", "…is indispensable to normal and healthy self-development, and has a value for survival."
2.Self-esteem as an automatic and inevitable consequence of the sum of individuals' choices in using their consciousness
3.Something experienced as a part of, or background to, all of the individuals thoughts, feelings and actions.
        
        
High self-esteem correlates highly with self-reported happiness.
