Quote:Silvana Montanaro – Understanding the Human Being

Self Esteem

Participation in every day life develops a feeling of worthiness in a person called upon to share it in an active way. Children become not only users of the world in which they live, but also producers. The basic experience of being able to change and transform the environment gives the person a feeling of personal worth that remains forever. “I am worth something” is added to the previous feeling that “I can do things”, and then becomes “I can do important things”.

Me I Am – poem by Jack Prelutsky

One of my favorite poems … It’s lovely

Me I Am !

I am the only Me I Am
Who qualifies as me,
no Me I AM has been before,
and none will ever be
No other Me I Am can feel
the feelings I’ ve within,
no other Me I Am can fit
precisely in my skin
There is no other Me I Am
who thinks the thoughts I do,
the world contains one Me I Am
this earth shall ever see,
that Me I Am I always am
is no one else but Me!
