Self-esteem, the condition wherein one feels both competent to live and worthy of living, enables people to provide for their own needs as well as those of others. People with high self-esteem relate to others in a healthy manner (Branden, 1981; Laskey, 1982). Self-esteem predominantly depends on the extent to which women can attain their ideal self-concept (Krausz, 1986). Sanford and Donovan (1984) stated that women's self-concept is the set of beliefs and images they all have and hold to be true of themselves. By contrast, their level of self-esteem is the measure of how much they like and approve of their self-concept.
