Self-esteem is the confidence an individual feels about themselves. It is the evaluation of what makes our own worth & how we feel about ourselves. Once you start feeling low about yourself, there is no stop to this deterioration of motivation. 

The more you see good in others, the worse you feel about yourself & this results in the decline of self-esteem. You start doubting even the minutest things of yours. But as there is a solution to everything, there are ways to boost your self-esteem as well. Some of these are –
