Confidence, Self Esteem, and happiness are all a part of self love. It is one of those funny question as where does it come from, or how do you obtain it. The answer is simple. Self esteem comes from living and accomplishment. It is my belief we all start out with a zero point on the self esteem ladder. Some points we go positive some point we go negative. If there are too many factors (people) detracting from your self esteem, then Low Self esteem is the outcome.
Your experience is just that, YOURS. If you use things out of your control as a barometer for your existence them you will have a tough go at it. This is why we see superstars who are adored by the public with really messed up lives. They need the approval of other as a measure of their worth. The alternative are those Media stars who perform their acts as a matter of an expression of THEIR Individual passion.
