We are talking about Self-Esteem on Crushing the Pressure, and this exciting episode with Keitumetse Tswhabi and her guests David Allily, Rulani Madavhe, and Lekunutu Pitso. Self-esteem can be defined as confidence in one’s own worth or abilities; self-respect.

So what is Self-esteem? You may think of it as your inner voice – the voice that tells you whether you are good enough to do or achieve something. Self-esteem is about how we value ourselves, our perceptions and beliefs in who we are and what we are capable of. If you have low self-esteem, your beliefs about yourself will often be negative. You will tend to focus on your weaknesses or mistakes that you have made, and may find it hard to recognize the positive parts of your personality.

Watch the two part video below, and let your self-esteem be boosted.

On the show, we also learn that our self-esteem can be misaligned with other people’s perceptions of who we are. There are many reasons why someone might have low self-esteem. A feeling of failure can stem from a poor decision or a series of experiences in life that lead to the person feeling down on themselves. There are ways to boost your self-esteem, even if you feel as if it seems like you are not able to. Enjoy.
