  • Going to therapy has done wonders for me. By working with a good therapist, you get at the root cause of why your self esteem is so low, and learn how to switch your thinking around. I am now better able to advocate for myself and combat defeatist thinking, both of which were huge stumbling blocks for me.

    "I told my cause he needed to leave...." HA!!! I *love* that answer!
