Self-esteem - Deepstash

Self-esteem is the subjective evaluation of your own worth. There are two sources to fulfill this need:

  1. The need for respect from others that is obtained from recognition and admiration.
  2. The need for self-respect in the form of self-love, skill or aptitude. If you buy things because you want to prove yourself, you will fulfill your need for self-love.


    Self-actualization is the realization of one's uniquely creative, intellectual, or social potential. It is a very personal experience.

    When their need for self-esteem is fulfilled, where they have accepted themselves for the good and the bad, people move on to self-actualization.

    The theory of motivation

    The theory of Maslow represents itself as a pyramid that explains the levels of needs.

    • The lowest and first one is physical needs such as water, food, and air. 
    • Second, come safety and security needs. 
    • Third comes the need for relationships, friendships, and love. 
    • Last, self-esteem and self-actualization.

    Those who have fulfilled their needs at the lower level will try to level up and also fulfill their needs in the upper levels.
