Building Self-Esteem: A Practical Guide to Growing in Confidence by Sue Atkinson
Sue Atkinson has for many years battled with depression and the lack of self esteem that is at its heart. Poor self esteem affects many people in many ways, contributing to failed relationships and lack of fulfilment as well as depression and other personal problems. In this thoroughly practical and heartwarming book, Sue shares her own experience of battling with low self esteem brought about by childhood abuse and work stress. Using practical exercises, encouraging the writing of a personal journal, and providing inspiring quotes and anecdotes, the author puts herself alongside the reader, acknowledging the difficulty of the task but always inspiring her or him to continue to change. If the reader response to her previous book, Climbing Out of Depression, is anything to go by, this new contribution will be a lifeline and an inspiration to many who struggle with issues of confidence, helping them to see their worth and live life to the full.
