I looked at a post on a social media site where the poster, a young lesbian, stated she was “battling low self-esteem”.

And I thought to myself, “Who isn’t?”

Seriously. Persons from groups that have been subject to discrimination and stigmatization, like lesbians, may feel uniquely burdened by this emotional malady. But we all do, to some degree or another.

In our culture that differentiates between winners or losers, survivors or victims, eaters or eaten, low self-esteem must be the order of the day.

The only way out is to not “play the game”. By the way, that is easier said than done.

That’s all for now.
