Self-esteem deals well with the Past

Dealing with the pastSometimes it’s difficult to deal with our past.  Whatever experiences we had in the past, the greatness of our self-esteem appears in the part of our past we continue to integrate in our life.

Some of our past experiences can be helpful in certain moments of our present or future life.

People with a strong self-esteem know that and use it for their development.

Our self-esteem gives us enough inner strength and conviction to know which part of our past we need to leave behind us and which parts should be retained.

Pigs living in an enriched environment (more space, freedom to roam and play) were optimistic toward an unknown noise. While pigs placed in a smaller, boring environment showed pessimistic reactions toward the same unknown noise.

Esteem vs Stereotyping – the Nature of Prejudice

Stereotyping the nature of prejudiceAs esteem has a double impact on the persons being involved the same happens with stereotyping.

When we give esteem to the persons around us it helps them as well as ourselves.  Giving esteem encourages us in our own self-esteem and good feelings.

When we are stereotyping others it has the same negative impact on us as it has on the persons being touched by it.  The team of Michael Inzlicht, an associate professor of psychology at the University of Toronto found that stereotyping has a lasting negative impact on us.
