Self-Esteem Self-esteem is important and often at the root of many problems. By continually trying to improve self-esteem, one may find that other problems are not so overwhelming. So what is self-esteem? It is a feeling of pride in yourself. In order to be at peace with others, you must be at peace with yourself. This means accepting your past and present, your mistakes and successes, your strengths and weaknesses, your choices and behaviors. It means being open to knowing all of you. This does not mean that you stop trying to improve, or that you heap blame on yourself, many factors have contributed to who you are - heredity, your family upbringing, your school and work experiences, your relationships, stresses, losses, circumstances, etc. Some of these things you had little control over. You came into this world as a valuable, lovable infant, as we all do, a child of the universe. What happened after that was not completely under your control, and perhaps resulted in feelings of shame and low self-esteem. The first issue that society is dealing with self-esteem is about teens obsessing on losing weight. It is because of the unrealistic picture of what people should look like. That is not normal. Parents don’t care about their children and spend any time with them anymore. Teenagers are the most vulnerable when it comes to body weight and shape according to Anne Collins. Studies show that teen have a desire to look thin but do not know anything about nutrition or health. This results in teens using more harmful ways to lose weight. But to my surprise teens are not the only ones that worry about their weight. Reports do indicate that children as young as 5 years old are becoming obsessed with their weight and shape. Reports even say that eating disorders are appearing in pre-teen and teens. Who is to blame for why teens are obsesses with their weight? Once again it goes back to the media, the magazines, and this time I am adding society to the list.
