Self Help

Self-help books and DVD’s can be a valuable tool for your own progress towards any recovery or personal improvement project, but there can be a problem with this type of support. Meditation or relaxation and hypnosis DVD’s have helped lots of people to deal with stress and anxiety so it can be worth trying them out, a good way of finding new ideas or free relaxation videos and free sound files is YouTube. Self-help books and videos should be seen as nothing more than a guide or what a valuable resource for some new ideas for new ways of dealing with issues like confidence and low self-esteem, it should not seen as a simple cure that needs little or no work from you.

Failing to change

Some people struggling with their low self-esteem or self-worth may find that they can feel even worse after trying and constantly failing to make improvements that have been suggested as easy to accomplish, occasionally in a self- help book it is suggested that as long as you follow the instructions or proposed tasks making progress is easy to achieve or something everyone can do easily. If the book says it is easy or simple to make changes in just a few simple steps or suggests that anyone can do it in a few weeks that will build hope and expectation for success. What if the book does not help after you try to follow the suggestions? Does that mean that there is something wrong with you as a person? Are you stupid or a hopeless case? No, it does not. But it can have a detrimental impact on some who are struggling with self-worth, thoughts of I am useless the book proves it, or I must be beyond help or I can’t change anything so it’s not worth trying can discourage them, this can leave them feeling depressed or helpless, thankfully most people are not affected as badly and blame the book not themselves. If you have not made any progress after reading a self-help book you have not failed, it’s the book that has failed you, even people in therapy do not always make progress straight away, it can take a change of therapist or just more time until progress is felt or recognised. The books are trying to tell you what you need to do without knowing you or understanding your own unique ways of thinking and feeling, all they are is a generic set of ideas that may help some but will not be able to help everyone. The money game It is good to remember that making money is often the real reason behind self-help publications, marketing and advertising will try to promote the book from a positive point of reference to get people to buy the product even if that pushes the boundaries of what is factual to its limits. Self-help books if used correctly can be a valuable resource for some people but they are not always helpful so don’t feel bad if they do not work for you, some books are very good and do give a balanced and thoughtful approach to helping people deal with difficulties in their life and help motivate them to make changes. It is better to place faith in yourself rather than a book. Want more options? Try this websites forum.
