Our expert says:
Actualy, it's a fairly widespread problem, among men and women, of all ages, that they may come to dislike themselves and/or to seriously lack self-confidence and self-esteem. And in an odd way, I think such problems may be becoming more common in young men than in young women. I think it's sad that so many young women, instead of becoming genuinely independe nt and free WOMEN, have instead chosen to become lads, imitating all the worst characteristics we used to see in young men --- drinking, swearing, and swaggering. Imitating anyone else's worst characteristics is not any advance, and some do seem to show very little respect for themselves, and none for others. But therapy / counselling would be the best way to go to solve the problems you describe. There was a time when it was fashionable to have Women's Groups as self-help, mutual support groups --- maybe it's time to form young men's groups on a similar basis ?
