Self esteem is often an issue amongst youth nowadays with the increasing demand for excellence in the society. It is very difficult to always meet the expectation of the society or of parents and peers and when one fails to do so, their self esteem plummets. This becomes an issue when it starts to make the youth become more withdrawn from the society and lose faith in their ability to do things that they can originally do. However, some people may have too much self esteem and believe that they are better than others, which isn’t necessarily a good thing either because that might just make people dislike you. Too much or too little self esteem isn’t a good thing. What is important is a good balance and thorough understanding of yourself and your abilities. Parents should also contribute to this establishment of a good balance considering that oftentimes the behavior of youth depends on if their parents are scolding/praising them accordingly. – Vivian
