How does low self esteem impact our lives?

Lisa Bien on the set of her show Bouncing Back

Lisa Bien examines how having low self esteem can negatively effect interpersonal relationships in a new episode of her show, Bouncing Back. Lisa speaks to Temple University student Erica DeAngelo about her experiences being in a relationship with a man who controlled every aspect of her life–an abusive partner who texted her constantly, demanded approval for every outfit she wore, and forced her to work out at the gym.

Since ending the relationship, Erica has found how necessary it’s been to build her opinion of her own self worth so as to avoid being susceptible to getting involved in another abusive relationship.  Lisa and Erica also speak with behavior specialist consultant Allison Faust who offers advice on how to tell if you have healthy self esteem.
