Self-esteem is how you think and feel about yourself. Being confident means being comfortable with how you look and how you feel. And it means feeling good about yourself, your abilities and your thoughts.

Sometimes your confidence can go up and down depending on the situation you’re in. You might be really outgoing outside of school but be really shy in class. This is completely normal. At school, you’re surrounded by lots of different people and it can be difficult to speak up and be yourself.
