Yes, as the great offspring song “self esteem”, stated, I have low self esteem. It was high and it can be high and it is especially much higher when everything is going awesome in life but in the past year, which I took off from pursuing my biochem degree, it has plummeted…Mainly because I can’t really hold down a job and because well my depression is really bad (the reason I took a year off instead of failing course and getting crappy grades and to try different treatments such as the ECT). SO having low self-esteem sucks and I can’t really get shit done or make good impressions with it….So like how I solve a lot of my problems I look on the internet for things to do to or read to help solve this problem! Actually, I guess my dad bought this book a long time ago (and never read it…grrr) called:
“Ten days to Self-Esteem” By David D. Burns.
I have only read the first chapter so far and done the assignments and tests he emphasizes doing. I like it so far he is funny and realistic. I took the Depression check list test and anxiety check list test and yeah I am doing quite bad, mentally. Oh well, I am hoping this book will help me get back to how I was feeling about myself, future etc, 2 years ago.
