I'm jumping on the bandwagon and talking about self-esteem today. I took a self-esteem test recently just for the fun of it. I think it was A who sent it to me. I thought I had pretty good self-esteem up to this point. Apparently not, according to my failed test scores. Or maybe it's a ploy to get me spend money to boost my self-image?
I've read quite a few posts lately where the theme was self-esteem. What is it with our preoccupation with this topic? Even more importantly, why do so many of us doubt ourselves, our abilities, our worth? How can we live in this capitalistic, materialistic, self-centered society and still lead happy, complete lives? Is it possible?
