In brief: Low self esteem

You will likely need to uncover the reasons you came to think of yourself as less than other people.
Confide in friends who can help you see yourself accurately. Consider reading my workbook, "changing your inner voice" featured on the soundmindz.Org web site, full of stories that indicate how to raise self esteem and live a more balanced life. Best.

In brief: Better quality life.

Very few things, if any, are 100%, but if a healthy diet and lifestyle are followed, the quality of life is much improved.
In addition, a strong resistance to cancer, heart disease, and many other debilitating diseases is acquired. Over time, this makes a big difference in how a person feels and what a person can do, no matter how old that person becomes. Self help and group therapy also help.

In brief: Be good, and learn!

There are many ways to have healthy self-esteem. Most agree that there are two broad components to self-esteem: (1) the view that I am a worthwhile or good person; and (2) the view that I have some competence (i know things or know how to do things).
If people continue to strive to be virtuous or good and to learn and develop skills they will tend to have a positive self-concept. Striving is key.
