How amazing would it be if we could cast a protective shield spell around us like a Harry Potter character? In this case, a type of psychological barrier where no insult, criticism, or discouragement could ever touch us? According to researchers at Queendom.com who conducted a study using their Self-esteem Test, this form of self-preservation exists – in the form of strong self-esteem.
People with high self-esteem, much like optimists, walk around with an aura. They speak with passion and excitement. They smile and laugh easily. Nothing seems to bring them down; in fact, it seems as if nothing bad ever happens to them. It’s like they live in a different reality compared to low self-esteem people or pessimists, leaving the downtrodden either wondering what their secret is, or disgusted by their never-ending gush of icky, Pollyanna-pink frosting.
Researchers at Queendom.com, however, offer their assurance that high self-esteem people are not hiding a secret stash of happy-go-lucky pills. The secret to their success and their ability to deal with life’s ups and downs is as plain as the nose on their happy face – their development and nurturing of solid self-esteem.
According to data Queendom.com collected from 12,920 people who took their Self-esteem Test, solid self-esteem creates an impermeable barrier that bounces off negative life experiences.
After assessing their sample’s self-esteem, Queendom researchers asked the following questions:
Do you get discouraged easily?
In the span of a day, how often do you criticize yourself?
Do you ever find yourself worrying about whether your friends, family, or significant other still love you?
Have you ever been diagnosed with depression?
“When self-esteem is developed at an early age, a person is more likely to go through life’s ‘milestone minefields’ - like socialization, the awkwardness of puberty, major rejections, dating and breakups – with a lot less bruising to their ego,” points out Dr. Jerabek, president of the company. “This isn’t to say that if you didn’t get a good start in a supportive and encouraging environment, you’ll never be able to develop self-esteem. You can, but it will require effort on your part to change old habits of thinking and viewing yourself. It may seem like an impossible feat, but as you can see in our data, it’s well worth the effort.”
“Look at self-esteem as a painting. Every compliment, encouragement, and success adds a splash of color to the painting – as does every insult and failure – creating the picture of who you are inside. Some people think they need to stay with that painting and can’t change the colors because it’s who they are… but that’s not true. Self-esteem can be rebuilt, developed, and strengthened. You can start fresh with a totally new coat of paint,” concludes Dr. Jerabek.
