The Undervalued Self: Restore Your Love/Power Balance, Transform the Inner Voice That Holds You Back, and Find Your True Self-Worth
by Elaine N. Aron
by Elaine N. Aron
From my blog...[return]The Undervalued Self by Dr. Elaine N. Aron is written to help people realise everyone has an underlying self, that inner voice that proclaims one is not good enough or worthy and Dr. Aron's book sets out to help readers to identify the causes of the undervalued self and how to combat these causes. Dr. Aron has laid her book out in a very straight forward and easy to follow manner. She has broken the book down into nine chapters. The first two describe the undervalued self and what she refers to as ranking and linking and how these affect self-esteem in one's personal life. Linking would be good relationships one has whereas ranking refers to how one views oneself in the social hierarchy of life. Through numerous examples and self-evaluations, Aron helps the reader define one's undervalued self, the defensive mechanisms one employs and how to overcome them. Aron then delves into one's past and how one must look into the past to connect the dots to where one is today. Through a series of questions that lead to essays and deep thought, Aron helps the reader access, and hopefully heal from, any past traumas. Finally the book concludes with healthy linkings and then putting all the parts of the book together to create a whole. In short, The Undervalued Self by Dr, Aron is meant to help find one's true self-worth, quiet the inner voice of self-doubt, and focus not only on the conscious self, but the unconscious self.
