Do we cultivate friendships? These are just some of the aspects we should have in account to know if our self-esteem is at the best level, in order to give to others, the love that we ourselves have .

In addition, we must give importance to maintain values such as tolerance and empathy, so that we understand that the other is different because it has another way of thinking and seeing life.
