Self esteem: making better choices

Assuming that other people do hard work and showing gratitude for it is so important in a world where modern conveniences may have shadowed that hard work, making life seem easy, where in reality hard work is being done.

Personal effort and gratitude for others efforts do indeed improve self esteem.

Thank you Doctor Dave

Dear Rabbi Lieberman,
Thank you for this wonderful series.

Please, I really need the reference about the bronze winner feeling better than the silver.

Every blesiing.

self esteem

Thanks for emphasizing this lesson that one's choices in life matter tremendously. I would add that the problem w. today's generation is the negative influence of secular society, which is pervasive, even for the Orthodox community (more so the Modern Orthodox, obviously). We need to teach our children how to distinguish the benefits of secular society and how to properly engage in it without it taking away from our Jewish values and way of life. I'm thankful to Aish for providing a haven for those who may not have necessarily been fortunate to have a strong Jewish upbringing growing up who know all too well the emptiness and shallowness of modern society, who want to steer towards the true meaning that Judaism provides. This is helping the younger generation to build true self-esteem and a path to lead a better, healthier life
