Self Worth And Self Esteem

What is self worth?

Self-esteem is being mistaken by many people as a synonym of self worth. But, they are different from each other. Self worth is your identification of the self. Self worth means that you are convinced in your mind that you are worth to be a person in this world. Since self worth is basically about who you are and not what you are, it is just about your worth as a person and not about your external expressions or actions. Self worth is in no way related to your activities. It only denotes your value as a person. Self worth should not be based on external factors and when it is based on external factors it is very harmful. Many people derive their self worth based on their appearance, their performance in the respective field of activity and what others speak about them. This will lead to severe psychological problems such as stress, anger and depression and consequently they fail in their tasks, develop eating disorders, resort to use of alcohol and drug and tend to break relationships.

What is self-esteem?

While self worth is the self recognition as a person, autoestima is what you feel and believe about yourself. When a person has self-esteem he feels good about himself. While self worth has a spiritual base, self-esteem has a worldly base. When a person values himself based on what he finds and undergoes, that is called self-esteem. Your self-esteem tells you whether you are able to achieve something. The self-esteem of a person depends on how he values himself. It also depends on his perceptions and beliefs about him as well as his capabilities. In the case of some people, their self-esteem is based on other peoples perceptions about them. As a result, those who are really capable develop low self- esteem and those who lack in many aspects may have good self-esteem. Too many setbacks in life or a wrong decision at the crucial stage can lead to failure. Those who have the feeling of failure develop low self-esteem. Those who have low self-esteem are not confident of their abilities and they feel that they are not strong enough to remove the obstacles and reach their destination.

Without self worth, self-esteem has no value

The self esteem of a person works only when he knows his actual worth. When a person fails in his task his self-esteem may go down but, if he has self worth he knows that he is good as well as valuable. Those who know that they are worth are able to accept failure and success in the same way. Though failure is painful, the self worth provides them the knowledge to overcome the failure and achieve success.
