1.57 SELF-ESTEEM -- PSYCHOLOGY ABUSE TERMS, CONCEPTS

==== Self-Esteem

MEANING: Your sense of your own worth or lack of worth. Self-esteem is a key concept in understanding abuse.

RELEVANCE TO ABUSE: Abusive people will try to manipulate your self-esteem so that they can control you by giving or taking away your sense of worth. You need to develop your own sense of your worth independently so that you cannot be manipulated in this manner.

PERSONAL NOTE FROM RICK DOBLE: Your sense of worth is usually based on what others close to you feel as well as your own feelings about the level of skill or accomplishment acquired by you in your chosen field of work. This word is closely related to identity, but quite different. Identity relates to who you are; self-esteem relates to how you feel about your identity.

RELATED WORDS AND PHRASES: pride, dignity, self-respect, identity
