The Office of Personal & Career Development guides and inspires Wake Forest students to take charge of their personal and career development from their initial days on campus. Maintaining a healthy sense of self-esteem is something many people struggle with.  It can be especially hard for Wake Forest students, because they are surrounded by other very talented people who are smart, or artistic, or athletically gifted, or very beautiful, or whose lives seem like they are so easy.
It’s easy to make comparisons – what if your child thinks her roommate is the prettiest girl on campus?
There is also a notion I learned when I spent my WFU semester in the Dijon, France program from my French host mother, a psychologist.
The fact of the matter is that our students need to be spending a little time and energy on developing in each of these dimensions.
I think we do a huge disservice to our children when we stress self-esteem instead of self-respect.

When we understand that before anything else we are sons and daughters of the Living God, it will change the way we look at ourselves. Amen…I think we, as a society, are seeing the consequences of placing so much emphasis on self esteem in recent years.
We are relational creatures and we find our way through our primary relationship with our creator, who loves us dearly.
Tremendous teaching…I hope this makes it to every parents email, blog or whatever…just so they see this truth! Confidence is one of my favorite traits, as I believe lack of confidence and self-esteem is one of the easiest ways to sell ourselves short. So confidence and esteem can be gained by changing our outer reality, by it is most often gained by changing our inner one.
And if you’re a parent and want to make sure your child grows up with high self-esteem, try getting them involved in artistic activities and focus on helping them solve problems on their own. A Healthier Michigan is sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, a nonprofit independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association. In the wake of liberalism and political correctness, more and more parents are latching on to the notion of self-esteem.
Those who grew up swimming in the sea of the self-esteem movement were slapped in the face when the reality hit that not everyone is going to give you accolades or pats on the back.
Now that I am a parent, I caution myself in praising too much or praising the wrong things.
I am certainly still figuring out the balance between praising my children and giving them unnecessary compliments. One thing the Lord has showed me is that children, do not in fact, gain self-esteem because someone lavished verbal praise upon them. Even though this blog entry is over a year old, I see that no one has commented on it yet, so I’ll do the honors. Self-esteem is a psychological term used to reflect a persons confidence in themselves to complete daily tasks and their feeling of self-worth. Low self-esteem and confidence can have a significant effect on you and your wellbeing, which comes with its consequences.


Self-esteem and confidence can be improved using psychological treatment, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). An individual with a healthy self-respect “likes” themselves — even when encountering the inevitable failures in life. If they sold self-esteem in the Sky Mall catalog, it would like like a smiling (but evil) Buddha.
Being the mother of a 11-year-old girl going on 16 or something, I’m dealing with this on a daily basis. Swedish researchers found that the more time someone spends on Facebook, the lower his or her self-esteem. Volunteer at a local charity or help clean up your neighborhood and you’ll feel better about yourself. It can be tough to lift your spirits if you are around friends and family members who tear you down. Because their parents bought the lie too, that building a child’s self-esteem is critical to raising an emotional healthy child. I try to avoid verbally praising my children for things that I expect them to do, like sit at the dinner table and eat dinner, or pick up their toys, or be kind to one another. Rather, self-esteem and self-efficacy develop from discipline, healthy boundaries, and in knowing the person of Jesus.
I would just sit there and listen to what THEY have to say, which is something that no one else did”. The more depressed or anxious you become, the more your opinion of yourself and your abilities deteriorate.
It can effect personal relationships, social life, careers and result in negative behaviour. To esteem something is to “hold in high regard.” Self-respect and self-esteem are quite different. While on the other hand, you raised an excellent point, it’s almost like self-respect is not even part of the equation. When life is lived in fellowship with him, to his glory, all the rest falls into its proper place. But my Dad has long insisted that Self-esteem is bogus, and I think self-respect got thrown out with it, because us kids got neither.
A study that came out this year from Concordia University showed that keeping self-esteem high throughout your life can help reduce your risk for health problems as you get older.
And an Australian study this year showed that you get another blow to your self-worth if you post something and nobody likes it or comments on it.
Sitting up straight in your chair makes you likelier to believe positive thoughts about yourself, according to research from Ohio State University. You’ll know you’ve made a difference and will feel a sense of accomplishment, two things that will give you some much-needed self-worth. Children born in the 70’s and 80’s were raised based on the idea that building self-esteem is a critical component to raising well-adjusted children. In Ottawa, Canada a rule has been established by the local soccer league stating that a team cannot win by more than 5 goals.


There are certain things expected of us in life and there are other things for which we must strive. That’s not to say though that we can skip out on hard work or the effort needed to achieve something.
The post isn’t actually that old, but I moved it over from my Tumblr, thus losing the comments it had. And if they are trying to imitate someone else, aren’t they imitating because they WANT to be someone else?
Resulting in avoiding activities that could help re-build your esteem and address depression or anxiety.
There are a variety of symptoms such as heavy self-criticism and regularly giving reasons for your actions.
Self-esteem balances precariously upon a comparison with someone who’s always “a little better.” When we esteem someone or something, we face serious trouble if we do not measure up to those standards.
It turns out that low self-esteem is connected to higher cortisol levels (the stress hormone), which can result in physical health issues. There was a belief among parents that self-esteem was an extrinsic quality and needed to be fostered by parents themselves. Confusing the two creates children—and then adults—who are underachievers and yet “over-expecters”. Because it you didn’t and you wrote all of this, then you and I really do think alike on this subject.
This is a process that helps you complete a task by identifying exactly what you need to do in small achievable steps. Or has parents with significantly more money?  Or has the perfect romantic partner?  Your child might feel much less by comparison. Our esteem may ebb and flow, whereas a healthy self-respect (liking ourselves) is always grounded in what we are (and are not) — not in what we can or cannot accomplish.
He takes any type of discipline as if they were directed at his spirit and not his actions. They have accomplished little, yet expect to receive the same kind of reward and recognition as those who have done much.
I will say to my daughter for instance, “Did you know it pleases God when you are kind to your brother?
Whereas self-worth is finding worth in yourself from a greater source and in my case it’s the Lord.
Yes, a good self-respect will help him some, but if he doesn’t (with the help of his counselor) work through these things that are tearing him down, he will have no self-esteem and therefore will have no self-respect. In an attempt to make the losing children feel better about the fact that they lost, they have created “a non-competitive environment.” Swell, sounds like fun. Well, no, some of us are actually jerks by nature, so some of us shouldn’t be ourselves.
