I am new to the message board. I need some advice and support. I have been dealing with self-esteem issues all my life. I grew up in an abusive household. Constantly being told I was worth nothing and how I was to blame for everyone’s unhappiness. I now struggle to deal with my anger and pain of a missed childhood. My self-esteem isn’t as low as it used to be but its bad enough to affect every relationship I have (professionally, friends and more). I am trying to change my outlook on life but I am getting very frustrated with how hard it is. I started to see a counselor and he is helpful but I think I need more than that. I am too ashamed to talk to my friends, as it is very hard for me to even admit my problems to strangers. I was hoping someone out there could help me with some advice and support. My fear is I will never get “better” or even feel better.
