Why is self esteem important?
Self-esteem is discussed a lot in our culture and few people really know what we mean by it. But having a healthy self-esteem influences the way you relate to others (family, friends, and your significant other), and how you get things done (at work and at home). Self-esteem influences your whole life. Many Christians are afraid of pride and equate humility with low self-esteem. In reality, having a low self-esteem is a form of pride. Being overly-focused on yourself (whether negatively or positively) can lead to problems and even sin.
How can I change?
Increasing your self-esteem doesn't mean resorting to arrogance but simply coming to a place where you accept yourself with all your flaws and shortcomings and establish your identity in Christ. At that point, you can get the focus off yourself and truly give to others without expecting anything in return.
