We can explain self-esteem as the feeling of dignity we have about ourselves. Self-dignity is something we can’t get or lose through an outer force. It’s at the untouchable core of our being.
Self-dignity has to do with our being unique. We can’t compare ourselves to others because there is nobody else like us. When we say this we don’t mean it in a selfish and competitive way. When we acknowledge our being unique we also acknowledge the uniqueness of everybody else.
Self-dignity is another expression for the awareness of our singular personality. We see and feel ourselves as an inimitable person.
Our self-esteem grows on the basis of self-dignity. Therefore we can’t also lose our self-esteem. We develop our self-esteem on the basis of our self-dignity. It’s like we clothe our self-dignity and we show it as our self-esteem to the outer world. It’s up to us how we clothe our self-dignity. We can show our self-esteem in poor or rich clothing.
