    Re: Proper Use In a Sentence

    Welcome to the forum.

    Neither is correct.

    The world won't care about your self-esteem.

    "Self-esteem" (note the hyphen) is a noun.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    jetfam, please note that a better title would have been Yourself or your self.
