The Many Aspects of Self-Image
The official definition of self-image, according to the Oxford Dictionary, is “the idea one has of one’s abilities, appearance, and personality.” Self-image affects every aspect of our lives.
Professional and Academic Self-Image
Believing in your professional or academic capabilities is part of self-image. If you frequently find yourself stressed about your performance at work or doubting your ability to do well in school, you may be struggling.
Your belief in what others think of you is also part of your self-image. If you’re uncomfortable in a room full of people or frequently find yourself re-thinking what you said, you may be struggling with self-image.
