This weeks vlog gives insight into the role that self-esteem plays in depression and how becoming aware of your depressive symptoms can help you build your self-esteem for life.

Many readers ask me how self-esteem can be improved if they suffer from depression or have in the past. Frustrated and confused,  they have tried to increase their sense of self and fell short due to underlying symptoms of depression.

Although there are many factors at play (environmental, situational, biochemical, and an individual’s background) that can make increasing self-esteem tough, it is still very possible to achieve.
