What You Should Know About Confidence and Self-Esteem And Corellation With Shyness and Social Anxiety
However confidence not only applies to what you've done before but also to something you've never done before. For instance, let's say you've never tied a shoe lace, your ability to learn how to tie a shoe lace will depend on how confident you are that you can accomplish the task. If you think it's nearly impossible (unconfident) then it'll be very hard to learn. If you think it'll be easy (confident) then you'll pick it up easily.
What is Self-Esteem
Self-Esteem is confidence in oneself, it's related to your self-worth. Having a healthy sel-esteem is essential to a happy more fulfilling life. There are two primary elements to developing self-esteem. Firstly you have to face your fears, feel the fear and do it anyway. Secondly you have to persavere, it's no good facing your fear and running away at the first hurdle. The act of overcoming your fear is what will improve confidence and build self-esteem.
Your self-image is the image you see when you imagine yourself in your minds eye. Do you see a positive, healthy, attractive and popular person or do you see a negative, unhealthy, ugly and unpopular person. This image you hold yourself will affect your self-esteem and self-worth. Change your self-image and you'll change how you feel about yourself whether it's for the better or worse.
Take the extreme case of someone suffering form anorexia. This persons self-image is of a fat person, even though they know intalectually that any person of their height and weight is too skinny the self-image they hold of themselves is of a fat person. It doesn't matter how much they weigh they will always see themselves as a fat person. If you can change their self-image into someone who is ugly because they're too shinny then the anorexia will be cured. However this is easier said than done and could have the opposite effect which could result in the person over eating and becomes fat.
What is Self-Worth
Self-Worth is how much you value yourself as a person. People with a low self worth tend to be depressed and unhappy with life. The sort of self-talk that they use would be something like this. Why does nobody like me, why would anybody want me, I'm a nobody nobody even knows I exist so they won't miss me when I'm gone This type of negative self talk sends you on a downward spiral and in extreme cases can lead to suicide.
Self-worth, Self-Image and Self-esteem are all related in one way or the other. Confidence is also related but on a lesser scale. Even a person with the lowest self-esteem still has the confidence to turn on the light switch but may not have the confidence to learn something new.
