What constitutes a healthy self-concept?
The ability to know yourself; to be able to assess your strengths, weaknesses, talents and potential.
The ability to be honest with yourself and be true to who you are and what you value.
The ability to take responsibility for your choices and actions.
The ability to love and accept yourself as you are, knowing that you can improve and develop any aspects of yourself that you choose.
Developing a healthy self-concept takes deliberate planning and concentrated effort. It takes acknowledging your intrinsic value as a human being, and then working to acquire the skills needed to confront the many challenges and adversities we encounter in life.
When you posses a healthy self-concept, nothing can rattle you, or take you off your stride. You are confident, poised, and assured because you know you are equipped to handle whatever comes your way.
