So what about our self-confidence?

“Self-confidence”, also known as “Self-Esteem”, is an extremely important and curious concept, which is widely talked about in the society we live in today and on which correct/false comments are made. In this regard, many researches in the field of psychology show us the relationship between self-confidence and human behavior. First of all, I would like to start with the definition of Self and Self-Esteem.

The self is our opinion of our own personality traits, our way of evaluating our positive/negative aspects. Self-esteem, that is, self-confidence, is the state of being at peace with oneself. It is the individual’s self-satisfaction, self-love and self-worth, and the ability to develop positive emotions by controlling himself and his environment.

In fact, most of us state that we have high self-esteem. But when it comes to implementation, the situation is deplorable. I seem to hear you say that there are too many of these types in your environment to be underestimated. This type of individuals say I am satisfied with myself, I love myself, but they do not take any action, they lead an unsatisfied life with a negative mindset. We see that this self-confidence remains only in words. Because the individual wants to be that person, but the courage and self-esteem are insufficient.

When the individual controls his value judgments by acting in the direction of his own wishes and decisions, positive emotions are reinforced. This increases the self-confidence of the individual and makes him/her self-confident and self-confident.

Self-confidence is not an innate quality to individuals with genes, but a central issue that develops over time from childhood. Disappointments experienced in this regard, social environment, lack of mother/father and the way of being brought up are among the factors affecting self-confidence.
