The 4s of Self 
What is Self-esteem 
Self-esteem is your overall sense of worth and value. 
It is how you feel about yourself, your abilities and your self-image. 
High self-esteem is associated with confidence, resilience, and a positive outlook on life, while low self-esteem can lead to feelings of inadequacy, self-doubt, and negative self-talk. 
Building and maintaining healthy self-esteem is important for your overall mental and emotional well-being.

Self-compassion is treating yourself with kindness, understanding, and acceptance in times of failure, struggle, or suffering. 
Acknowledging your own humanity, imperfections, and difficulties without judgment or self-criticism. 
Self-compassion involves being supportive and caring towards yourself, just as you would towards a friend or loved one in need. 
It is a way to promote a positive and nurturing relationship with yourself, promoting emotional well-being and resilience in the face of challenges. 
What is Self-acceptance
