I might have a reason for my low self esteem. I do not want to be responsible for my happiness. So I use others peoples happiness to be happy. Why do I not want to take any responsibility for my own happiness? It seems what others can do, I borrow from them to be happy, as far as self esteem goes, if they are unhappy so am I. Therefore I am equal to them. What else is necessary to be happy? Thoughts please. Paul/pljames

Pert 5,
Excellent post. Read the URL about Buddhism also excellent. It reminds me of psychology which is my passion as well. Paul
