1     Do you feel good about yourself, your choices, and your talents? How you answer that question is a measure of your self-esteem. Your self-esteem affects everything you do, how you talk with others, and what decisions you make.
2     People with high self-esteem show respect for themselves by eating nutritiously and getting enough rest and exercise. They respect their own value system by refusing to do anything they believe is wrong. They set realistic goals and work hard to reach them. People with high self-esteem try new things and don't give up easily. They ask for help when necessary. They help others.
3     People with low self-esteem are more likely to give in to peer pressure and, therefore, make poor choices. They are critical of themselves and others. They often feel pessimistic and depressed. They are more likely to use drugs and alcohol than those with high self-esteem.
