Did anybody watch Oprah today? The topic was how we as women can learn to put ourselves first. Her life skills coach Dr. Beck (who writes a monthly column for O! Magazine) really struck a chord when she stated that the majority do more giving than receiving and that the root of this is low self-esteem. I was actually in tears at one point when I admitted to myself that I don't feel valued. It also dawned on me that I've had a history of practically choosing relationships where I knew I would be the giver thinking that I would somehow find value but instead I only ended up feeling used and worn out. Can I get a witness here?
