Anxiety is instilled in our core; it helped our ancestors adapt and survive over the ages. Anxiety alerts us to inner and outer threats. It’s natural to feel anxious from time to time as the night before an exam, during a first date, or walking by a barking dog. A little anxiety is a good thing– it’s there to alert and protect you.
In psychology, self-esteem reflects a person’s overall subjective emotional evaluation on his or her own worth. It is a judgment of oneself as well as an attitude toward the self. It looks that self esteem is subjective and made up of the thoughts, attitudes and feelings about ourselves. One of the most common features of low self esteem is negative self talk.
