    self-esteem is the overall evaluation or appraisal of one's own worth.

    中文是自尊

    self-respect is a proper sense of one's own dignity and integrity

    中文是自重

    有一句話是這樣說的

    no self-respecting man will ever ask a woman for money

    雖然這是老式的想法啦

    但是他的翻譯是

    有尊嚴的男人不會跟女人要錢

    1. they are both mostly used in noun form;

    2. self-esteem seldom is extended to adj form.

    3. self-respect may be extended to adj, like self-respectful, self-respective, or self-respecting. However, I never saw it as verb, but why not!

    Who says so? I saw many little boys asked for allowances from their mothers.
