A healthy view of self,
Like the story of Goldilocks and
Her search for porridge and of a bed
To taste: not too hot, nor too cold,
And of bodily comfort: just right.

So too, self-esteem: a view
Not too belittling of self
Nor stuffed to overflowing
O’ over-inflated ego,
But somewhere in-between.

A realistic view. Self-aware.
Appreciative of strengths.
Accepting of limitations.
Comfortable in one’s own skin
Born from a real liking of self.
