Thirdly, another theme that Yen Mah exhibits is that true value of encouragement. Yen Mah does not think that she is good enough and often thinks of herself as unimportant, so the little love and encouragement that she receives is very valuable and one of the only things keeping her away from a self harm mindset. One example of a small piece of encouragement that boosted Yen Mah’s self esteem dramatically was acquired when playing a game with her friends at the Sacred Heart school. The game required the group to write down the best physical, intellectual or social feature about a person and compare the groups answers to the own person 's opinion of their best feature.
