SELF: Text Based NOTES


me vs myself = internal conflict and include dealing
with one's emotions/feelings, stress and self concept


Our personality is by definition who we are.  It is
defined by our genetics from birth, our cultural,
religious and family influences and the environment in
which we live including our peer groups.   Within the
past several years, social media and the internet has
largely taken over as the #1 influence in teens
decisions, behaviors and often times, how they feel
about "self"

Someone's personality also helps to define their
learning styles...some people learn by
seeing/reading..some learn by hearing/writing
while still others learn from doing and experimenting.   

Terms to know:

SELF = Who you are

Self Esteem = How "high" or "low" one thinks abut
themselves. Some "experts" say this is an imaginary

Self concept = how one looks at themselves which
may or may not be different than someone else looks at

Self Image = How someone thinks that others think
about them

A person with a positive/healthy sense of self   
recognizes their strengths and weaknesses, their
learning styles, and their goals in life (short term at
least if not long term).  A person with a healthy self
esteem knows what their limitations are and makes
learns to love who they are.

Conversely, a person with a poor sense of self thinks
bad about themselves,  A person with a low self
esteem may become depressed, and a person with a
self esteem too high, will push others away.  

Not being able to positively express one's self, low
self esteem and poor self concept and all lead to
depression or worse!  It is important to seek help if you
are suffering.

In addition,
Body image is how someone sees their
specific physical body.  A negative Body image has
someone see themselves as "too fat", "too skinny", too
"ugly" etc compared to what other people think.

A healthy body image is realistic using science and
biology..recognizing different body types and
