    I agree that we have to welcome our changing self-esteem. I think that many therapists can get caught up in the idea of only improving, however, true growth comes with its ups and downs, and a shaky self-esteem is likely to be part of this process. Vulnerability has it’s ego risks, but it’s worth it if you can avoid being over protective of yourself.
