Report: Millions Of Americans With No Self-Esteem
By Dewey McRobotface
NEW YORK—A report published Tuesday by the American Sociological Association revealed that millions of Americans with no self-esteem are devoid of the strong sense of self-worth that is required to grow into a functioning adult. “Our research has uncovered that a substantial majority of adults who are unable to identify their feelings of inadequacy and need to see themselves as overly-self-critical and self-critical are essentially in the best position to develop the essential self-esteem necessary for functioning in a healthy relationship and maintaining emotional stability,” said the report’s author, Dr. James Stover, adding that over the course of a 15-year study, millions of individuals were found to have, in fact, not enough self-esteem to successfully work through their own issues, navigate their own emotions, or simply maintain healthy relationships with others. “This is a serious problem, requiring the complete and utter inability of these individuals to feel confident enough to make a sound argument for themselves or have a positive outlook on life.” Stover went on to say that, in addition to these individuals, there are millions of individuals in the country who are socially isolated and, therefore, incapable of expressing themselves in the way that only honest, compassionate, and decent people can.
