What Is Self-Image (And How to Change It for a Happier Life)

By Peter Julian

The viewpoint of oneself is referred to as self-image, and this self-image helps to depict intelligence, talents, and other characteristics of a person; given the breadth of self-image, its influence and significance in a person’s life (be it positive or negative) cannot be understated. It should be noted, however, that self-image refers specifically to one’s view of oneself, as opposed to self-esteem, which includes self-image and deals with how one feels or thinks about oneself in general. With regards to one’s life, having negative or positive self-image can result in real negative and positive effects, respectively. Self-image is not set in stone, but is instead something that morphs throughout a person’s life, and by learning to better appreciate oneself, one can build a positive and healthy self-image.

Key Takeaways:

  • Having an optimistic self-image can help to boost our overall well-being.
  • Negative self-images tend to arise when we believe that we aren’t achieving the best versions of ourselves.
  • Self-image is an ever-changing concept that can, and will change overtime, so it’s important not to get stuck in a rut.

“Our self-image is the personal viewpoint we adopt towards ourselves which describes characteristics such as intelligence, attractiveness, talents, kindness, and many other traits.”
