I’ve come across a study done by the American Psychological Association. They have determined that getting your self esteem by things like what others think of you and what position you gain at your employment may cause health issues. The healthiest kind of self esteem that can be obtained is the kind that you get intrinsically. That is to say things that you do that offer you nothing but the warm fuzzies and simply knowing that you’ve done a good thing. I am linking the article… and pray that you will work to make this change in your life. This way, you can get closer to living the life that Christ died for you to have.
