My Self-Esteem

I have a high self-esteem. I enjoy being open and being who I am. I tend to be defensive and protective of my loved ones. I am not afraid to stand up for what I think is right. I find it difficult to find people who i trust, but once my trust is gained, I can depend on you for anything. I am proud of what I look like. Many people, in my opinion, are too self-aware. God made you the way you are for a purpose, so stand with that purpose and live a beautiful life. I am very confident about almost anything I do. I am confident is school, with my friends and family, in difficult decisions or problems, and my physical and mental image. I feel that I am and will continue to be successful in my full and happy life. I do feel devastated if someone rejects me as a friend because I try to do is make their day better, but I can recover easily as long as I have my friends and family. I believe I can do anything with my life as long as I try my best and be myself.
