Below are my own Cstan98 study notes. Not mean to replace actual course.
Self-Esteem defines a Person self-worth.
Chinese Saying: "beach is made up of many tiny sands." Don't look down on adding a particle of sand. Also don't look little on losing one.
Discipline like waking up. Go to work. Increase self-esteem.
Do not go against conscience. And do things like masturbation & pornography. All these against conscience sins minus your self-esteem.
Aim for things higher than materials things. Psychologist Maslow calls it self-actualising. The highest need. Listen to your voice. Do something you are proud of.
JESUS CHRIST: "be a light shining on top of hilltop at night. Giving this world Your light." If You do that. You have fulfilled Your purposes in life.
Little accomplishments like writing daily website increase self-esteem.
Psychologist Carl Rogers: "self-esteem is most important assets of person." When person does not have any. The s/he does not want to live anymore. Because it is too painful.
Proud boastful people are low self-esteem people. Because they external words. To add their self-worth.
You must protect your self-esteem. Do not let people run it down. People who commit suicide are because they have negative self-esteem.
High self-esteem People build/help/love/... other people. Be that kind of Persons.
