As a guy it's hard to admit to yourself that you have a problem. Due to certain parent issues I believed myself to be unloveable and not worthy of anything good. My self talk was mostly negative and I had a hard time standing up for myself. I faked it very well so no one would know that I was the unloveable person I believed I was. This book, along with her workbook, truly opened my eyes and helped me to see that my mindset was still holding on to beliefs I made when I was a kid. This book helped me so much that I actually had a friend tell me I seemed different and more confident. (Keep in mind I told no one I was reading and applying the exercises in this book to my life as I was too embarrassed to tell anyone.) This book is not about pointing blame, it's about understanding why you think the way you do so you can make a positive change in your life. If you're reading this review and are not sure if it's for you, I will leave you with this advice. If you look at a child you will see how innocent and beautiful they truly are. If an adult treats that child badly, it is NEVER the child's fault. It is always the adult who has the problem. The child may not understand this and may internalize that something is wrong with them, but they would be wrong. All children are innocent and that includes you. It's not your fault.
This is a great book to help people understand what Low Self-Esteem is and how they can conquer it. Through narrated examples, excercises, and discussions you can learn how much low self-esteem controls your life and how to help yourself. For me the most important part about the book was the confirmation that I had low self-esteem, not depression, and that I could share the book with my husband so that he could understand what I was going through.
