ESTEEM « Merit is the pure essence of self-esteem »
In 1970, Abraham Maslow refers to self-esteem in his famous hierarchy of needs, also known as the « Maslow’s Pyramid ».
He defines her as an individual’s double necessity: to feel competent and to feel recognized by the others.
Self-esteem is an inner attitude that consists of saying that we are important and unique.
It means to know oneself and to love oneself with all of our qualities and limitations. It is a self-appreciation and self-acceptation as we are.
