The UnderValued Self ~Book Giveaway~

Giveaway now Closed. Congrats to Kelsey,Janna,
Lisanne624,Couponmom and Deborah
.
Everyone has self-esteem issues, one way or another. It's cliche, but you can be the most beautiful woman in a magazine and you'd still have insecurities. You can be the most brilliant scientist on the planet and have issues relating to self-esteem. There appears to be no limit to our capacity to undervalue ourselves, and while in most cases, a good pep talk can boost our morale, there are people whose issues run deeper than that.



This book takes a step towards understanding self-esteem and how we can take control of it.
Restore Your Love/Power Balance, Transform the Inner Voice That Holds You Back, and Find Your True Self-Worth

Elaine Aron follows up her bestsellers on the highly sensitive person with a groundbreaking new book on the undervalued self. She explains that self-esteem results from having a healthy balance of love and power in our lives. Readers will learn to incorporate love into situations that seem to require power and deal with power struggles that mask themselves as issues of love. From the bedroom to the boardroom, her strategies will enable us to escape feelings of shame, defeat, and depression; dissolve relationship hostility; and become our best selves.
About Author:
Elaine Aron, Ph.D., is recognized internationally as one of the leading scientists studying the psychology of love and close relationships. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, Time Magazine, and National Geographic, and she has appeared on national morning shows on many networks. She is the author of The Highly Sensitive Person, The Highly Sensitive Person in Love, and The Highly Sensitive Child. She divides her time between New York and San Francisco

I actually have some food insecurity issues from my childhood. I do okay as long as I have food in the refrigarator, but when it starts to run low, I get just a little nervous. I am much better about it now.

Deborah Stinson-editor said...

Only one insecurity? Well, we'd be here all day if I listed them all. I guess one of my insecurities is that I worry too much about what other people think. It sure doesn't bother anyone what I think!

I know this doesn't count as an entry but I just saw Darcies post, and wanted to say I hope all is going well. Mine wasn't a double but a single, so I know how you feel.
Stay strong, sister

I'm a follower, and unfortunately, a bundle of insecurities! My biggest insecurity is probably my total lack of fashion sense -- I'm never confident that I look "pulled together!"
