Self esteem is a subject which comes up often in this forum, in one form or another -- directly or indirectly. And most of us agree, it seems, that healthy self esteem is necessary for healthy relationships. So a "thread" on self esteem might be helpful. Especially if those with lower self esteem can learn HOW to improve their self esteem from others who have at some time had lower self esteem and improved theirs.
Have you improved your self esteem at some point in your life? Do you know how you managed to do so?
How does poor self esteem affect relationships? and why?
