I had self-esteem issues into my early 20s.
By creating so many illusory images of physical perfection, whether on store aisles or storefront ads, magazine covers or TV shows, we speak more to the profit margins of companies than the self-esteem of today's girls.
I'm surrounded by geniuses, which is really not good for my own personal self-esteem!
I didn't have high self-esteem when I was a teen-ager, as I think most teen-agers don't.
I want to poke holes in the erroneous beliefs about what fame provides. It won't raise your self-esteem, it won't create profound connection, it's not going to heal your childhood traumas, it's only going to amplify them. You're going to be subject to a lot of criticism and praise, both of which are violent in their own ways.
Self-esteem is the greatest sickness known to man or woman because it's conditional.
I certainly don't feel like I have the perfect body type... It's through your own eyes. And for every female, you're going to see flaws in that; you're going to see flaws regardless. So for me, it's just important to have that confidence and self-esteem no matter what body type you have.
Sport is important for children, especially from disadvantaged places, to bring up their self esteem.
Demands for equality for women are threats to men's self-esteem and sense of sexual turf.
Being famous before you've formed your personality, before you have that self-esteem, is dangerous.
