The unwind and re-stitching process I suppose. I got mixed messages from my mother. Completely positive and uplifting when she was sober. Self-esteem destroying when she was not. Which is why she was simultaneously my best friend and worst enemy. Might have been good for her too. I miss her so much, both the person she was and the person I wish she could have been.

Review: “I Like Me” – A Confident Pig Teaches about Self Esteem

They would tell me to skip numbers, count backwards, start at 11 and so on. They would give me cookies for entertaining them and I would bring them home and show my mom before I ate them.
She would smile proudly and pick me up. No one knew why but I simply refused to give it up. I want you to throw it away and drink from a glass like the big, wonderful boy that you are. You are a fantastic young boy. I remember coming home from school, probably in the first grade, and pouring a glass of soda. All the straws together look like that thing in a bee hive. My mother smiled. You are so smart and creative! What a bright young man you are.
Self-Esteem: A Primer: A Challenge to Conventional Thought by Yehuda Lieberman
When I was fifteen my friends and I stole a bag of cookies at the beach from a family who had gotten up to go in the ocean. I told my mother what I did.
She sat me down and looked at me very seriously. Do not steal from other people. You are not a thief. Events like these stick with you for your entire life. They form the template for your mental health as an adult. Good parents teach you that you have value, are worthwhile and that you should respect yourself. This is not the same as teaching a child he is superior, entitled or more deserving. Life got a lot harder for my mother as I became an adult which took a toll on her nurturing streak.
Primer 55 Lyrics
The High Self-Esteem Label is branded into my head. The messages we take in as a child stick with us, a tight coil of string that has to slowly be unwound and re-stitched over time. She knew how to get those all-too-important words into my skull. So now she can get away with more biting statements because she created a foundation of self-assuredness in me.
