A healthy self-esteem falls in the borderline between a low self-esteem and an excessively high self-esteem.
For now, think of self-esteem as an overview on how a person sees and carries himself or helself. It can be low, healthy or overly high.
Note: A healthy self-esteem gives a balanced and accurate view of oneself.
It is important to state that people who display excessive pride alongside their actions lack a healthy self-esteem. Pride in itself can be a vice (negative value) and this is expressed in the popular saying that goes thus: "Pride goes beyond a fall".
On the contrary, a humble person does not necessarily have a low esteem. For instance, the fact that a rich and famous man spends some of his time with the poor, lowly and despondent does not mean he has a low self-esteem. In fact, this very action of his may even affect (positively) the self-esteem of the poor who had been visited.
People with a healthy self-esteem will always believe in themselves. They don't write themselves off regardless the situation. In addition, they respect others, no matter their state in life and in return see themselves as deserving of respect.
A healthy self-esteem is not only experienced in success. It is also displayed in temporary failures. For instance, a student who was only able to conclude 50% of her assignment due to a sudden health breakdown can still display a healthy self-esteem.
People with healthy self-esteem are always real and realistic in their expectations. Rather than being hypercritical of themselves and others, they tend to be more resilient, thus withstanding the discouragement, disappointments and setbacks that comes along with a temporary failure (or better still - delayed success).
Note: A healthy self-esteem is of great benefit to every individual.
The points below gives a summary of the characteristics and benefits of a healthy self-esteem. One who intends to enjoy the benefits of a healthy self-esteem must possess the following characteristics as summarized below:
