Shayan Ghose Mod 4 2-12-08 Journal Response #4, 5, 12 What are some ways to increase your threshold for a higher level of self-esteem? There are a few things that one could do to boost their self-esteem but there is one that I think is the most important – try to be good at one thing. No matter what this thing is – sports, academics, community service, etc – one should always try to their best in this. By doing their best and excelling in this one activity, a person will have pride in doing something well and will have a high self-esteem. Do you see a relationship between your current self-esteem threshold and how well you deal with stress? Yes, often times when my self-esteem is high, I am better able to cope with stress. For example, I was able to cope the death of my grandmother in a manageable way because my self-esteem was high so I was able to accept her passing with better ease.
