- How Would You Rate Your Self-Esteem? Phyllis Ayman, MS/SLP, CDP, CADDCT, CDCM, CMDCP 48:35
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, self-esteem is a confidence and satisfaction in oneself. It’s a realistic respect or a favorable impression of oneself, a view of ones’ accomplishments, capabilities, values and perceived success in the ability to live up to them. A healthy self-esteem reflects positively on our wellbeing. But, when we have low self-esteem, it can be destructive to our lives, our relationships, our health and wellbeing; it can be a painful existence.
Sociologist Morris Rosenberg developed a self-esteem measure, (known by the acronym RSES) that’s used widely in social science research. It uses a 0-30 scale where any score below 15 is indicative of problems with self-esteem.
It’s no secret that many of us suffer from low self-esteem. It’s not only based on our own opinions and beliefs but can be an accumulation of our experiences and people who impact our lives, from our family to friends and professional relationships. Self-esteem can also suffer as we lose the roles we fulfilled throughout our lives, for example, when we leave our professions, our children leave our home, we lose a spouse, we lose a person we’ve been caring for, especially an older parent.
