An individual's self-esteem can influence their overall well-being. For example, people with low self-esteem may feel shame and doubt because they are frequently criticizing themselves. On the other-hand someone with high self-esteem often feel good about themselves and have high expectations about their abilities because they often view themselves in a favorable light.
