My current interest is about ‘Self esteem thru self image’.
Self image is a picture about how we see us, how others see us and how we think others see us.
Thru self image we filtrate information called strokes, and self esteem receive will receive.
According to Humphrey’s (1998): “There are two central dimensions to self esteem: the feeling of being lovable and the feeling of being capable”.
Self esteem is a judgement, based on the extent to which we feel loveable and capable. This will be fed to some extent by the lived evidence of how much we are loved and able to do things. This can shift according to situation (Ginnis, 2002).
How can we create and maintain a good and healthy self image?
I believe that a positive attitude it is not enough if the person do not believe is true, for example a person can try to have a good attitude about himself and do not believe it.
My question is if we are what we do and believe, or we do and believe what we are?
I prefer the second, because some people do not believe in what they do. ‘’I was wondering If I believe what I did’’, here I am talking about self identity………..
Life Positions according to Eric Berne are:
Linked with this concept of self esteem, TA describes a range of “life positions” that we might take it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I’m_OK,_You’re_OK
|You’re not okay
That is all! Now you can reflect!
