Hi Dr. Keane, Ive been taking note of what you said in your

Customer Question

Hi Dr. Keane,
I’ve been taking note of what you said in your previous posting. Yes I do indeed know I am too hard on myself. I know I should be kinder to myself. I don’t think I’m as hard on anyone else. If I ever am I certainly never mean to be. I know it’s all such a bad habit and all takes work, but I’ve always been prepared for that. The fact that you say I’m doing well helps. In answer to your question - to “wallow” in any low feelings is not ever going to accomplish anything. I realise people procrastinate. I do that when I do account work, but needs to be done. It isn’t exactly the greatest task. I certainly don’t think things to be done are too menial. I am aware that sometimes it is the smallest tasks that build up to complete a bigger task. That was just quite prominent, but are now completed in time for deadlines. I did a lot of thinking and came to the conclusion that for some important and very involved things it’s perhaps all linked to the low self-esteem. I am working on it and not wanting to give up of course. For some smaller things, well I know we all sometimes think about putting off until tomorrow. I am certainly also putting more into practice that I don’t need to take up every opportunity given to me.
Lol – I liked your feedback. Letting you know my first name was not a problem at all.

Dr.Keane :

Hi, interesting reflection on your part, you get it and yes, it is related to low self esteem. However take a look at where you are now versus where you were months ago, big change and a lot of work so far.
