In the late nineties, I was a well-developed people pleaser with no self-esteem. I could not stand my meekness so I read everything I could get my hands around people pleasing and self-esteem. The six pillars of self-esteem turned my life around and I re-typed the book on a PC to really understand how I could live a more limitless life.
“Apart from disturbance whose roots are biological, I cannot think of a single psychological problem—from anxiety and depression, to underachievement at school or at work, to fear of intimacy, happiness, or success, to alcohol or drug abuse, to spouse battering or child molestation, to co-dependency and sexual disorders, to passivity and chronic aimlessness, to suicide and crimes of violence—that is not traceable, at least in part, to the problem of deficient self-esteem. Of all the judgments we pass in life, none is as important as the one we pass on ourselves.”
~ Nathaniel Branden from The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem
