Overcoming Low Self Esteem CBT book 'read-along'?


I've just started reading a CBT book called: Overcoming Low Self-Esteem by Melanie Fennell.




I'm finding it a really difficult read because of what its confronting and I guess I'm feeling a bit alone in tackling this scary thing. Is anyone else interested in reading it with me?, obv at some comfortable pace to roughly stay in synch. I was thinking we could read it through together, doing the exercises etc and discussing stuff and giving eachother support. I just want to say that it probably will bring up upsetting issues for you though, but I would just ask that you're also fairly committed to seeing it through.

I appreciate this is really asking a lot so I know most won't be interested but for anyone that feels strong enough and wants more out of life get in touch! the more the merrier!

Thanks for reading.

Out of curiosity what kind of exercises it has? Talking to everyone and doing everything to get over the fear?

the honest answer? I'm not sure, I'm quite early on still but I think it will be dealing more with our own self-concepts, more than with our relationships with others. Its hard to pick out exercises to give examples because the book packs them into the writing, thats why I've ordered the workbook version.

Its divided into 3 parts: What is self esteem, understanding low self esteem, and overcoming low self esteem, part 3 is the majority of the book.

Each chapter in part 3 concentrates on one area of the self-esteem cycle she uses:
