Is Your Self-Esteem Other-Dependent?
Are you unhappy and don't know why or how to fix it?
Do you compare yourself to others and end up feeling bad about yourself?
Do you worry about what others think about you?
Is being successful and having it all not enough?
Have you given up on yourself?
If your answer is yes to any of the above, you may have other-dependent esteem. According to licensed counselor and self-esteem expert Patricia Noll, other-dependent esteem means that our happiness and self-worth depend upon something outside of ourselves, such as:
what we have, do, and know
what others think about us
achievements and accomplishments
being the best
The problem is that nothing outside of ourselves can truly make us happy-at least not for long. Other-dependent esteem creates a cycle of stress, addictive behavior, dependency, and ultimately deep unhappiness.
In Good With Me, Noll presents the same revolutionary approach that has helped her clients at Focus One shift from other-dependent esteem to true, self-dependent esteem-and experience freedom from crippling effects of other-dependency. This simple, practical, step-by-step solution will also help you finally achieve lasting happiness from the inside out, regardless of circumstances.
