Dr. Burns spends a whole chapter on Self-Esteem and if you were to read only one chapter this would be it. Self-Esteem is the largest difference make in an individual’s life. Those of us who live with depression and anxiety are the kings’ and queens’ of sabotaging our own self-esteem. Dr. Burns talks about this and how we have to make changes in our behaviour and thought processes to correct this problem. Dr. Burns discusses how self-esteem is not determined by what we own and how our careers do not define us. This one chapter can make a significant impact on your life and you must take the time to read it. Next week I will discuss the chapter on overcoming “Do Nothing”.
