What is self-esteem? Is it a different notion than self-love?
Most of us would agree that they are not alike, indeed, and if we were to choose one over the other, the best would be to choose self-love because the self-esteem can isolate us from other people, it can create a false image of ourselves and when things don’t go as we imagined, that’s when it can hurt us most.
Instead, self-love opens the doors to compassion toward ourselves and the others.
