Hi Soloyo, we lose our 'sense of identity, self-worth and confidence', and it has to do with who you think you are and how you perceive yourself and can contribute to so many problems in our lives.
We wonder who we are because all of a sudden we hit a wall, that's why we need a compassionate psychologist and not one who wants to question our existence and reason why we need help, that only closes the door and the relationship between us and them has gone.
My psychologist who I had been seeing for 20 years (WorkCover paid for it ) was terrific, she remembered all the names and who they were, but suddenly upped and left and the next psych was terrible, all he kept saying was that no one should be depressed and no one needs to take any medication at all.
He also told me that OCD is something which no one needs to carry out to get rid of any obsessive thoughts, my sessions with him were very short, because what he believed went against why I was there.
An enormous change in how a good psychologist (20 years) compared to one who had no idea of helping anybody can be and if it was the other way around and had seen the bad psych first that would have definitely depleted my trust.
There are so many words to describe how we feel about ourselves, how we think about ourselves, and how we act toward ourselves so what is the difference between self-worth and self-esteem or is there any?
Well self-esteem is thinking well of yourself and having some self-respect, whereas self-worth maybe an opinion of oneself, so which one should a psych concentrate on first or are they both the same?
