The amount of self-esteem one develops, is shaped by the environment and by the encouragement we get during childhood. So, children with high self-esteem would act independently, take responsibility for their actions, control their negative/positive emotions, attempt challenging tasks and would also be proud of themselves after accomplishing any task. However, those with low self esteem would avoid public interactions, blame others for failures, feel unworthy of love and affection, would not be able to control their emotions and would choose a wrong way of expressing emotions.
