Self esteem is an essential part in our life's or developmental stages. Positive self concept does not mean that someone is self centered or believes that he or she is always correct, good, and moral and can do no wrong. To accept one is to accept one’s short comings as well as one’s strengths-that is “to accept myself for what I am”. The manner in which one is raised is important for acquiring a positive self concept.
