How To Build Your Self-Esteem Since You’re Not That Great

What most nurturing parents will do is tell their child how great they are. That they’re unique, special one of a kind, they’re an outstanding human. Then they’ll gloat that little Jimmy is so athletic, or he could count to 100, or Anna is so cute, to everyone who’ll listen.
