The Self That I Long to Believe In
The Challenge of Building Self-Esteem
Low self-esteem reaches into every area of our lives. Its power and impact is not easily understated. A low-self-esteem can be crippling, causing people to live horribly marginalized lives bent under the weight of self-hatred and perceived inadequacy. This book is a combination of thirty-eight years of walking with a nearly innumerable number of people who found themselves bent under the weight of self-hatred. Over these years, I have written a large number of articles and blogs on this difficult and paralyzing issue.
This book is a thoughtfully expanded and enriched collection of this material, carefully and meticulously brought into book format. The chapters are unapologetically practical, speaking to people not in some theoretical format, for that does very little for hurting people. This is a book to lift people. A book to encourage people. A book to give them a handful of workable thoughts and a reliable road out of the low self-esteem that has dogged their days and darkened their lives. This is a book to liberate people from the chafing chains of low self-esteem.
