How highly do you regard your own self worth? Do you trust in your own abilities? Is your relationship with yourself and others affected by low self-esteem or poor self-confidence?
The concepts of self-esteem and self-confidence can sometimes be confused. As awareness and understanding are key factors when initiating change, knowing the difference between your levels of self-esteem and self-confidence can be helpful.
According to Wikipedia, self-esteem reflects a person’s overall subjective evaluation of their sense of worth or personal value; whereas self-confidence refers to a feeling of trust in one’s abilities, capacities and judgments.
