    Help with low self esteem issues





    Many of us struggle with issues relating to our self esteem. These can really come to the fore when we are depressed. We start to believe our inner bully who whispers negative thoughts about us to ourselves, even as others try to assure us that these negative thoughts are untrue.

    In this thread I'd like to collect some resources for coping with that horrid inner bully. So that if it come around here we can all be prepared to give it the it deserves

    To begin with I'd like to share this link to the MIND website's self esteem pages......

    http://www.mind.org.uk/information-s...s/self-esteem/

    If anyone has anything they would like to add or share please feel free to do so

    The parrot was excellent. If you don't mind i am going to print that off and share it with the CBT group on Thursday.
