How has self esteem impacted your overall activity in life?
Do you think they share a large correlation?
I wrote this primary for the EII, but please don't hesitate to chime in.
I'm currently sinking my teeth into Augusta's works and stumbled upon her readings that are surface level translated. In her write up about EIIs, she points out that the lower evaluation of character within us typically degrades our volitional abilities. She argued our negative perspective weakens our ability to gauge to view appropriate potential outcomes. That additude leads to a need for external validation. Later, she describes what she believes to be a emotionally mature person: somebody who objectively perceives themselves and makes adjustments through their own perception versus the need for external validation. If emotional maturity revolves around objective perception then is self esteem largely a perceptual issue? Is this congruent to how you grew as a person? do you agree with the idea?
