Self Esteem

Scripture tells us that we are to love others as we do ourselves. There’s only one problem with that for a lot of people – they don’t actually love themselves. The one common factor I see when I talk with people is a significant dose of low self-esteem. In many cases it’s no self-esteem. I […]

Self-Talk

Yes it’s true; I talk to myself. My wife gives me a hard time because I’ll be in the shower or just sitting around talking quietly to myself about stuff.
