Barbara shares an excerpt from her book High Self Esteem
We may have tried to get good grades in school, or to look a certain way. But no matter what we tried, that sense of belonging was based on something outside of us rather than on who we were within.
How do I love myself? How can I feel like I don’t need approval and validation from anyone else anymore? What can I do to really feel happy inside? How can I know if someone loves me for who I am?
How can I feel like I don’t need approval and validation from anyone else anymore? How can I know if someone loves me for who I am? Why is it so hard for me to love myself? What can I do to really feel happy inside?
Did Anyone Ever Tell You..
When people lash out at you
They have also been lashing out on themselves?
How “powerful” are you?
What does it take to have belief in self? …No matter what anybody has ever told you about yourself, if it feels degrading in any way, it is a lie–because you were not born with it…

You cannot be effective, take risks, and expose your authentic purpose when you have much self-doubt and criticism blocking the divine flow of your energy. You can only create and give birth to your greatest self when you accept all of yourself from this moment–now–exactly as you are…

Now we are going to establish your inner truth and backbone-so you will actually feel a solid sense of self.
The choices in front of you
Verbal abuse comes in the form of snide remarks, put-downs, insults, degrading comments…
Now we are going to establish your inner truth and backbone-so you will actually feel a solid sense of self based on your truth. From this moment on, whenever you notice any form of abusive behavior, I ask you to set a clear, definitive, and healthy boundary around yourself. Setting that boundary will allow you to move away from the source of abuse and to never allow abuse into your life again.
