Self-esteem is made up primarily of two things: feeling lovable and feeling capable. Lovable means I feel people want to be with me. They invite me to parties; they affirm I have the qualities necessary to be included. Feeling capable is knowing that I can produce a result. It’s knowing I can handle anything that life hands me.
So in order to feel lovable, believe that people will like you, love you and respect you. So as to feel capable, believe that you can produce results. These two things will boost your self-esteem.
