INTRODUCTION AND INFORMATION GATHERED

Self esteem is the component of a person's personality that dictates how they view themselves. People with healthy self-esteem feel good about themselves and see themselves as worthwhile. People with low self-esteem, on the other hand, put little value on their opinions and ideas and constantly think that they aren't "good enough."

One of the primary influences on how self esteem is formed is one's environment. A great majority of adults can recall either being the target of the insults of their peers as children; or, being the one that targeted the other kids. Those who were the instigators have, in all probability, shrugged it off as a part of growing up. However, for the victims of this practice, there are often deep scars.

Some environmental elements that may contribute to poor self esteem are:

• Harsh criticism from family and peers
• Physical and emotional abuse
• Social ostracism
• Unreasonably high standards to meet
• A person’s own thoughts and perceptions
• School experiences
• Sports experiences
• Work experiences
• Illness, disability or injury
• Culture
• Religion
People who suffer from low self esteem often experience myriad problems in their adult life, for instance:

• Inability to meet academic and work standards
• Increased instances of depression, anxiety, stress, and feelings of worthlessness
• Difficulty
