We speak about self-esteem, self-confidence, self-image, but what does “Self” really mean?
Recently I read some thoughts about the Self from Allan Schwartz, LCSW, Ph.D. who explains the self referring of “how you judge yourself, how you think others judge you, how you imagine and think about your body, and what you believe others think of you. In a matter of speaking, the self refers to “what it’s like to be you.”
The self is a mental model you have of yourself, an idea, a concept or way of thinking.”
He also mentions another thought: “What it is like to be you is something that is not static. It changes over time. It’s the result of your experiences. However, there is nothing solid about the self. In reality, it’s a construct, an idea, a mental model you have of yourself, an idea, a concept or way of thinking. As such, it is fluid, it changes over time.”
