    Great and up-lifting article on self-esteem. It’s important to remember that people who suffer from depression also have low self-esteem.

    I’ve had many health set backs in my life which has made it difficult to be active and I can no longer work.

    It’s very hard to be up-beat all the time when you feel useless. It’s a daily struggle but I’m a survivor and I approach it one day at a time. Thanks for sharing.

    This is a really good uplifting post and I would agree that having self esteem is very important because I think a lot of your success as a person hinges on it.

    The person with self confidence is going to develop relationships with people a lot easier and they are just able to attract people unto themselves.

    They are people who are usually going to achieve a lot in life because they will feel healthier and happier and are not afraid to give something a go if they haven’t done it before.

    I agree with all your points as past successes are the stepping stones to greater success.
