You can use ser when you talk about personalities, occupations or adjetives.

For example: 

Yo soy bueno

Yo soy Ingeniero de Sistemas

Yo soy loco.


You can estar when you talk about situations or places.

Estoy sucio

Estoy en el parque

Estoy feliz


Hope it can help you bro! Write me if u want more help :)
