A few nice self esteem images I found:

Envy (also called invidiousness) is best defined as an emotion that "occurs when a person lacks another’s (perceived) superior quality, achievement, or possession and either desires it or wishes that the other lacked it."
Envy can also derive from a sense of low self-esteem that results from an upward social comparison threatening a person’s self image: another person has something that the envier considers to be important to have. If the other person is perceived to be similar to the envier, the aroused envy will be particularly intense, because it signals to the envier that it just as well could have been he or she who had the desired object.
not done with editing obviously
just wanted to get some stuff up for now
Engaging With Communities

Gregory Campbell, MP pictured with Billy Ellis, secretary, Millburn Community Association, discussing Thursday evening’s meeteing in Coleraine Town Hall.
The meeting is a pioneering attempt to assist people in working class communities. He is hosting an informal Meeting in Coleraine Town Hall on Thursday 7th October at 7.30pm to address the education and employment deficit which affects a significant number of people in working class housing estates. Mr Campbell has been in consultation with the Northern Regional College regarding these issues and senior staff from the College in Coleraine will be in attendance to give advice and assistance.
Mr Campbell said "If this is successful it is my hope is that it could be replicated across many estates throughout Northern Ireland. Meeting people regularly on the doorsteps as I do it is apparent that in many housing estates there are high rates of unemployment, low educational attainment and higher welfare dependency and often there are many who suffer from low self esteem. For some time now I have been considering how to help people in areas such as these. Quite often people would like to get assistance but aren’t sure how to get it. I firmly believe there is a need to establish one to one personal contact with specific objectives in mind to assist people in circumstances like these. Obviously vocational classes have been available and advertised for many years, but take-up from among these groups has traditionally been very low.
This project, if successful, will entail people in and from working class areas engaging on a one to one mentoring basis to encourage groups of people from these areas to enrol together. This grass roots element should help those most marginalised to help themselves move out of benefit dependency.
I have spoken to the Northern Regional College and they are keen to give assistance. Individuals are the key to success in this venture, going to each home in a number of estates, meeting people to find out what they would like to see that could help them and their immediate families in finding a way out of their present position. I have written to those in the voluntary and community sectors in the locality and the objective is that a group of like minded people enlist on the most appropriate educational courses to help them find meaningful employment.
It could also be that plumbing, joinery, electrical, painting and decorating type of courses are those which people feel more comfortable with and could lead to the possibility of opening opportunities for self promotion and gainful employment.
It may be the case that if this is successful it can be repeated across Northern Ireland, I am aware of other similar such ventures in individual estates but this project has entailed over 3,000 handbills being delivered to homes in a number of estates over the course of the last week and therefore has the potential to help in a wider context.
Anyone who has an interest in these issues, is welcome to attend this informative meeting", said the MP.
