Like all other emotions, self esteem is a fundamental emotion and it affects everyone irrespective of their age.

In other words, the individual changed his or her perception of self-misery or self-loathing into joy and self-love by believing it was possible. The individual used positive thought or the mind to change his or her reality.

Become Your Own Source of Support, Love and Motivation

You can heal your own life. I love Louise Hay’s book, “You Can Heal Your Life”. That book has helped me tremendously in healing my own life. It was given to me by someone who loved me and wanted to see me living my life as a victor and not as a victim to my family and abusers. It is a book that I will recommend to anyone, female or male who is going thru a difficult life. This is an especially great book to read if you are not ready to go to a Professional Therapist.
