My long-term readers will know the struggles I have gone through in the last few years – mild depression when I was younger, chronic low-self esteem and self-worth most of my life, feelings of inadequacy when it comes to relationships, at times body dysmorphic disorder (which I acknowledge is unusual but not unheard of for a male) and often feeling there is something unquantifiable yet critically wrong with me, how I am and how I look and generally feeling that I am not good enough. . .
My personal pledge is to carry on being open and honest about what I have been through, what I am going through and what I am doing about it. I will be frank about the good days and the bad days. I will continue to use the tried and tested self-help methods and the lessons from therapy that I have learnt.
