Recommended to Meen by: An old therapist
7/9/11: I found this helpful, especially considering the sort of self-esteem "bottom" I've come to. And I don't mean that I feel worse about myself than any other time in my life. It's just that it's gotten to the point now where it's inhibiting my ability to be comfortable where I now am and to get to where I wanna go/grow...

Excellent resource for self-discovery--

I still can't believe I had been groping in the dark without knowing any of the issues involved in low self-esteem. I've always considered myself as having healthy, if not high, self-esteem, always believing that I deserved better than what I got.

According to the book, however, I have mild low self-esteem. Looking back at some of my recurrent negative thought patterns and specific episodes in my relationships, I couldn't help but nod in utter agreement.

I learned that thinking that you are worthless, unimportant, etc is something that you learn in childhood when your authority figures (one of my authority figures has always been a younger sister) ignore you etc. I'll update this later when I have the book next to my computer. I could write an essay on things I highlighted while reading the book & at least a short (few pages) paper on the notes I took while reading it the 2nd time. Right now I'm working through the workbook that kinda goes w ...more
