Building Self-Esteem /Self Confidence what's the difference?
Self-confidence refers to a belief in one's abilities, skills, and judgment. It's the trust or assurance in a persons capacity to handle situations, tackle challenges, and achieve goals. For instance, a person with high self-confidence might feel capable of public speaking, handling new tasks, or taking on leadership roles because they trust in their skills and abilities.
Self-esteem, on the other hand, is more about the overall sense of self-worth or value. It's the subjective evaluation of oneself, encompassing feelings of self-acceptance, self-respect, and personal value. Self-esteem influences how we perceive and value ourselves, affecting emotional well-being and how we interact with others. Someone with high self-esteem generally holds a positive view of themselves, feeling worthy and valuable as a person.
In essence, self-confidence is more task-oriented and reflects belief in one's abilities, while self-esteem is broader, encompassing one's overall sense of worthiness and value as a person. Both are crucial for a healthy and fulfilling life, as they contribute to how individuals navigate challenges, form relationships, and pursue their goals.
