This is the last of the self-esteem posts from my “Ask Petey” video series. And this is a question that is asked of me so often in my work, “Really Petey, is it possible to overcome low-self-esteem?”
I don’t think that is such an unusual question given the fact that the majority of folks asking this have been feeling badly about themselves their WHOLE life! For those that are in their forties and fifties, it can definitely feel like a life sentence!
What do I say to this? YES, you can overcome low self-esteem! Some people have come to feel that it is just who they are…it is the way it is. I could not disagree more strongly. Low self-esteem is not a personality characteristic. It is the result of something that became skewed in your family system growing up as a result of some level of dysfunction.
This can be UNLEARNED! It doesn’t have to be a life sentence unless you allow it to be. What a blessing!
I can literally see the relief wash over client’s faces when I say this! It begins the dialogue for how low self-esteem can be overcome. There are so many tried and true techniques for this!
