  • People who respect themselves are more likely to take better care of themselves than people with low self-concepts. People who do not come from a nurturing or encouraging environment may engage in high-risk behaviors such as using alcohol or drugs. The more protective factors in a person’s life, the less likely that person is to seek love and approval by becoming involved in high-risk behaviors, such as engaging in sexual activity before marriage or the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
Learning to communicate well and to express, understand, and responsibly handle sexual feelings enhances self-concept along with mental and emotional health.
