It is important when addressing emotional esteem to recognize that every one of us has the ability to destroy or improve the self-esteem of another. How many interactions in your day make you feel bad or worthless? Stay connected to like minded people, people who appreciate your contribution, people who value you. It's not easy - I know, I really know!
Empathy fuels connection. "I don't even know what to say right now, I'm just so glad you told me." Because the truth is rarely can a response make something better, what makes something better is connection.
