Pippa and my issue is general low self esteem and self

Customer Question

Pippa and my issue is general low self esteem and self sabotage.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: My current issue is being let down twice by the same man whilst he takes no responsibility whatsever, and my just feeling like a fool for going back to him. But its part of a bigger issue which is my general lack of confidence (even though I have learnt to cover it up over the years) and low self esteem which effects every part of my life. Its as thought I feel that I don't deserve any good things to happen and that really I only deserve to be hidden in the shadows sitting at the back of life if that makes sense ? I think it makes me needy and not great at putting myself out there. The back story is I lost my job at the beginning of the year, a so called best friend told the company I worked for that I had gone to an interview and they were not happy, it ended up in me losing my job. And now (we live abroad) as I am going though the nightmare of dissembling a life out here, this guy has decided now is the time to tell me he doesn't want a relationship but really likes me and I enhance his life but he doesn't want anything more. It hurts on top of everything else
