"High Self Esteem Should Always Be a Priority"

I have always had a certain amount of high self esteem, but not the big headed self esteem. I got married at a very young age and my self esteem got put on the back burner for a minute. In realizing that, I came to the conclusion that putting my self esteem on the back burner for even a minute is wasn't an option. When you live with someone that's constantly nagging, raising hell and putting you down every chance they get. It's hard keeping your self esteem high on your list of things to do. I have learned that there are people out there, that will put you down because of their jealousy, envy or hatred. We can't allow anyone to pull us down to a low self esteem image. We must remember that God the father, made us in his own image and there is nothing to be a shame of because we're children of almighty God. We also have to remember that Satan is working on his job 24-7 days a week. To make our lives miserable in any way that he can, so that means being verbal and physical abuse by others.

When we lose our self esteem, we lose our identity but always remember that no one can take anything away from you, unless you willingly give it to them. Sometimes we have to fight hard in this life for the things that we have, and this includes one's self esteem. Because of the haters out there in the world that's digging the ditches and holes for us to fall into. That is another tool of Satan. There are so many people in this world that are miserable and they don't want to see anyone esle they go out of their way to wreck havoc with our lives. If we let them. Self esteem is honoring and respecting ourselves and feeling good about who we really are and never letting anyone take our God given light that shine. If we have high self esteem.... we're going to care about what we look like, and try to keep our self appearance up. Self esteem is not only self appearances, it's also about how we carry ourselves around people and present ourselves to the world. Self esteem give us confidence to be the person that God made us to be and feeling proud about who we are.

High self esteem is always going out our way to love ourselves and care about how we look each day. God made us the best, with his best and we shouldn't let anyone take that away from us. So, always walk with your head held high, dress good, look good, do good, and let your God given beauty shine through. If we're battling low self esteem that's the pits because we're not caring about our appearance or anything else. Which makes it a sad and tough situation. If we allow this situation to rule over our lives, we have dishonored God and ourselves in the process. We have to dig ourselves out of the self pity party and the woe me hole, and fight back for what we believe in. If we allow self debilitating thoughts and situations rule our lives, we're only going to be angry at ourselves for allowing it to happen in the end. We do have a God to pray too, and he'll help us get our lives back together if we ask for his assistance.

So, if we find ourselves in the bottom of the barrel and the person in the mirror is someone we don't recognize, then we need to quickly find ourselves and start our journey back to the land of the living again.

      Great hub! It shows that the deepest wisdom comes from personal experience, and I want to say thank you for sharing your wisdom!

      As you can imagine, I place a high priority on a high sense of self-esteem too (obviously, since I run a website on that topic). Your article has added another rich perspective to how I look at self-esteem. Thanks again!

      Very true and I like that message. Self respect ans self esteem is something that we should hold on to no matter what. It is very hard to do when we have people tearing our dog house down on ever turn that we make but, we should fight to hold onto it even harder.

      I agree that self esteem is important. I think thatsomehow self esteem get confused with pride, which is not so good. Not always easy to separate the two.

      This is such a great reminder creativeone. Especially when you put so much of yourself into others, you tend to forget about yourself. Thanks for reminding us that it's okay to have a balanced view of ourselves. It's true, when you have good self esteem, it trickles down to everything else you do, and you'll see the world in such a different light.

      One of John Prine's songs is "People Puttin' People Down". We got to lift each other up. But feel good about yourself. God does. Thanks Faye.
