What is the relationship between self-esteem and self-acceptance? And how do you manage to hang on to either when you’re experiencing depression? Dr. Margaret gives you her perspective, with the offering that no one fact about you defines you as a person. She also describes the difference between resignation and acceptance, and how the latter can lead to avoiding shame, and growing self-esteem. The listener email for this episode is one about being in therapy — what do you do if your therapist states incorrect facts about your history? Dr. Margaret says it’s very important to talk to your therapist about it, and gives several good reasons to do so.
