Your Attitude - Your Self-Esteem
Chapter 10 The Stairs to Recovery
Did you know that changing your thinking and believing that you will be
successful is the root of all successful change?
“As long as you’re going to be thinking anyway, THINK BIG.”
Donald Trump
Get a Support System
There are a lot of online support groups for recovering from a problem. The first
thing that you need to realize, no matter how strong you think you are, if you
have a severe problem, you need to allow others to help you.
Yes, you may have been hurt. Yes, your experiences may cause you to distrust.
However, whatever problem you have, the chances are you were feeling helpless
or alone in the first place. Now, you don’t have to be alone, and you can learn
and grow so much with a support group.
“Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That’s why it’s a comfort to go
hand in hand.” Emily Kimbrough
If a support group does not fit in with what you feel you need, then consider
choosing one person that you do know and trust.
Make a list of all the people you know. People you work with, family, friends,
teachers, an online friend. Now, cross out the people who will not be helpful.
These would be people who are not too concerned with the problems you face.
Next cross out those you know you can’t trust.
Now, start putting check marks on your list of those you trust.
