Self Esteem Counseling and Therapy in Lincoln, NE

The publication Psychology Today has defined Self-esteem as something that “is correlated with achievement, good relationships, and satisfaction. Possessing little self-regard can lead people to become depressed, to fall short of their potential, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love, on the other hand, results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failures. It can also be a sign of clinical narcissism, in which individuals may behave in a self-centered, arrogant, and manipulative manner. Perhaps no other self-help topic has spawned so much advice and so many (often conflicting) theories.” Oftentimes a mental health counselor can help individuals examine the processes that help establish their beliefs, and by so doing they may readily gain control of their self-concept.
