Self esteem is the overall subjective feelings. it’s the basic distinction of who a person really is. It affects our relationship,our existence and everything about our life….. Genesis 1:26 talks about God makes us in his own image . We have the image of God in us despite our colour and look. it’s just like when u crample money and that same money goes back to other’s but they still use it. That’s how we should be we shouldn’t be let down because of a bad side of us.
Ephesians2:10 says “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them” This means that we’re just masterpiece. We’re to be celebrated. We have to learn to brand ourselves.
They’re three types of self esteem which are high self esteem,low self esteem and inflicted self esteem.
1.High self esteem
This kind of people have a positive energy towards almost everything. They believe they can do anything as in “Philippians 4:13
I can do all this through him who gives me strength” They just don’t take in so much the negativities around them. When they want something, they go for it and fight for it.
- Low self esteem
These category of people can lower themselves and subject themselves to certain, mostly bad treatments because they think and feel they don’t deserve the best like everyone. This could be because of the environment in which they were born. Mostly we get information from people around us . hence , when the people around us are negative, they send dangerous signal to us. This can be felt in different areas of their lives and even in the classroom
- Inflicted self esteem
this category of people feel they’re more better than others. They feel they cannot be wrong. And this people when in relationship with them affects the other person negatively. This is because they jeopardize your happiness. They don’t let you do what you can to build the relationship. When you don’t take care, you will end up in a bad marriage when u don’t realise that aspect of them early.
