Self esteem is the ability to see yourself as a flawed individual, and still hold yourself in high regard!

Thank you! We need to remember this. It reminds me of my cognitive behavioral therapy(cbt). And welcome to MSF!

Appreciate your feedback. Here's another. I stopped holding myself to a standard of where I should be, as a means of beating myself up when I'm not there. Ram Dass.

Thank you. And Maharishi Mahesh Yogi fits here, too? How do you feel about Plato? Thank you for this thread! So spiritual & thoughtful!

I suppose any author could be appropriate. Plato, All I know is I know nothing.. How about this one, Beauty is not in the face, but a light shining in the heart! Kahlil Gibran. Your value doesn't decrease, based on someone's inability to see your worth.

So true this. I think for a lot of us, our low self esteem has been externally applied. I remember hearing Lindy West say this, that all her low self esteem issues had been externally applied - me too, I thought, me too.

I like this quote. " I have often thought that the best way to define a mans character would be to seek out that particular mental or moral attitude in which , when it comes upon him , he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments, there is a voice inside which speaks and says, " this is the real me!" William James.

On the other hand, I found this definition useful. Inferiority complex....a paralyzing fixation on ones inadequacies.

I don't understand this. But it reminds me of stuff we were learning in my research methods class many years ago.
