Our expert says:
Parents who have low self-esteem often convince their children to have low self-esteem, too. And Anhedonia, an inability to feel pleasure at pleasurable things, or a loss of the pleasure one formerly took from such pleasant things, is a classic feature of Depression. It is because such features can respond to CBT that I favour this variety of therapy rather than expecting chemicals, however useful they can be in other aspects of Depression and anxiety, to do everything that's needed.
YOu're not a loser, but have developed the attitudes of a loser, and this could become a self-fulfilling prophecy if you insist ! Do see a CBT therapist and get to work on this, as you deserve the improvements you could achieve
