Healthy, authentic self-esteem positively affects our emotional, mental, and physical health. We respect and value ourselves, feel competent, think clearly, manage our emotions and behaviors; and create a life that is creative and purposeful.
In contrast, low self-esteem creates a vulnerability to addictions, emotional distress and dysfunctional behaviors that are harmful to ourselves and others. Low self-esteem is not our fault, but it is our struggle. Believe it or not, you are not alone:
• If you feel unworthy and incompetent
• If you magnify your shortcomings and minimize your strengths
• If you are critical of yourself and feel driven to be perfect
• If it is difficult to respect and value yourself
• If you believe, “There is something wrong with me.”
Self-Esteem—Respecting and Valuing Ourselves offers a practical self-esteem recovery and empowering process that has been life-changing for many people. We can move beyond low self-esteem feelings, and truly believe that we are lovable and capable and one of God’s miracles!
