It is the ongoing process of determining personal growth and progress, which can be elevated or lowered by the behavior of a loved one (a psychologically close person). People are more threatened by friends than strangers. Abraham Tesser created the theory of self-assessment maintenance in 1988. The self-assessment maintenance model assumes two things: that a person tries to maintain or increase his own self-assessment, and the Self-assessment is influenced by relationships with others. Self-evaluation of a person (which is similar to self-esteem) can be raised when another loved one is behaving well. For example, a sibling scores the winning goal in an important match. The self-assessment will increase because this person shares his success. The closer the psychological relationship is and the greater the success, the more a person will share success.
