The process of undervaluing ourselves is continuous and for millions of people has emerged as a harmful problem.
Self-worth is essential to our relationships with not only ourself, but with our family, friends, neighbors, and business associates. When we view ourselves poorly we are ranking ourselves as “not good enough.”
In her book The Undervalued Self: Restore Your Love/Power Balance, Transform the Inner Voice That Holds You Back, and Find Your True Self-Worth (Little, Brown and Company), Dr. Elaine N. Aron offers a guide for people ready to understand and improve their feelings of self-worth with actions of change.
Emerge From Defeat
The Undervalued Self discusses how self-esteem is a result of love and power: a healthy balance between these two gives way for healthy self-esteem. When this relationship is unbalanced or disturbed, negative feelings of self-worth arise.
People have the habit of “ranking” themselves negatively, so much so that it seems to be an innate response. This book teaches readers how to modify this behavior to determine appropriate self-worth with a healthy balance of love and power. Dr. Aron gives readers the tools that are needed to undertake the essential transformation of self and emerge with confidence.
Stop Insecurities and Struggles
As a guide for emerging as your best self and overcoming negative feelings of shame, depression, defeatism, etc., The Undervalued Self gives lessons on achieving balance by learning about insecurities with love and struggles with power.
With self-questionnaires—there is also a quiz called “Do You Undervalue Yourself? on the book’s website—numerous case studies, and in-depth analytical discussions, The Undervalued Self is a comprehensive book with a strong psychological basis. Readers will uncover endless gems of wisdom, including common self-defense strategies of which we are often unaware. Referring to our inner critic and the timeless protector-persecutor problem, Dr. Aron helps readers connect the dots and dissect their own habits of self ranking and valuing.
The Undervalued Self is a thorough examination of the global epidemic of self-esteem struggles. Readers will appreciate Dr. Aron’s advice of rebuilding one’s confidence by making conscious and deliberate shifts in thinking and reaction to situations and people.
