When you hear the words "self esteem", what is the very first thing that comes to your mind?

The first thing I think of is that it's hard to have good "self esteem" (at least it is for me) when you do not get any encouragement or up-lifting words from others.

for me, it's not others' responsibility to make me feel good about myself. that has to come from within me, you know?

I tend to wish that I can have it back again. I know I will, working on it again.

Being able to accept good feedback instead of questioning it or being surprised about it, since you're so used hearing bad feedback.
