Mirror, Mirror on the Wall-Part 1
Wellness Psychology encourages each of us to more fully understand and appreciate the choices we make in developing and implementing our own individual self-esteem beginning as a child to becoming a senior citizen.
Beginning with words from the Book of Proverbs, "As he thinks in his heart, so is he", various approaches are presented to understanding the choices our heart implements during our daily living. "Love thy neighbor as thyself" is another guideline for study with emphasis on the last two words.
Honesty is often defined as the ability, to tell the truth to others. Maturity is the ability, to tell the truth to ourselves and, therefore, often tends to be more challenging for many. Maturity becomes a major goal of the personal retreating process.
Jim Cole's book Facades is used to demonstrate that healthy self-esteem needs a sense of belonging, having worth and value as well as having some competency.
Development of our self-views is characterized by "children are the world's best recorders of their world and also the world's worst interpreters of it." The outcome is that many individuals make choices that are inaccurate and lead to unhappiness.
