Didion states that having a lack of self-esteem is why human beings today are not successful. So, she acknowledges the other side to this argument with the phrase stated above and also draws the reader’s attention to the fact that self-esteem is an issue in society; self-esteem is not commonly blamed as one of the reasons people fail. Another example of how Didion uses metadiscourse to draw the reader in is when she states, “Although now, some years later…”. This is another example of argumentative metadiscourse because Didion is yet again acknowledging past mistakes made when self-respect was absent. This brings the reader’s attention to the fact that Didion was wrong in her childhood when she thought everything was easy and guaranteed, but the fact of the matter is nothing in life is certain… once we realize this we will gain a partial amount of the self-esteem needed to thrive in today’s

Insecure attachment affects a child’s brain development which in turn impacts interactions with others, resilience, confidence and the ability to explore their environments. Insecure attachment contributes to “cognitive vulnerability to depression, specifically, dysfunctional attitudes.” (Lee & Hankin, 2009). Some characteristics of an insecurely attached child includes the inability to deal with stress, low self esteem, a lack of self control, and pseudo-independent behaviors. These children often behave as if they know that adults are inconsistently available. They do not seek an adult for help when in distress or dealing with a situation, or they avoid the caregiver
In opposition to Waverly, the character Jing-Mei has experienced repeated rejection and failure in her attempt to become a prodigy and finally comes to the decision that“I could only be me,” and any attempt at developing new skills or talents was futile (Tan, 24). So, it is because of her past experiences of continuous defeat that she bases her perception of her self worth and capabilities. While in some cases, one may respond in the complete opposition of Jing-Mei, continuing to persevere in spite of their failures, they still draw on the previous experiences they’ve had, utilizing them as an inspiration or a learning
The hopelessness theory attributes depression to a pattern of negative thinking in which people blame themselves for negative life events, view the causes of those events as permanent, and overgeneralize specific weaknesses to many areas of their life. Borderline Personality Disorder is a pervasive pattern of unstable interpersonal relationships and self-image. There is marked impulsivity which begins by early adulthood. The root, however, stems from early childhood, when the person experiences what is termed “learned helplessness,” which is a cognitive model of depression in which a person feels unable to control events around him or her. "Learned helplessness" suggests that a person has been taught to feel helpless and think in self-defeating ways.
There are many reasons that one may choose to procrastinate, there are also consequences, but there are benefits that we tend to overlook. A lot of people procrastinate, but why do they do it when they know it causes them stress? “Many people tell themselves that they procrastinate because they are disorganized, lazy, or worse, because they just don’t care enough” (Wiegartz). Some people believe that if they procrastinate, they don’t have to blame their lack of skill for not getting things done correctly. Rather than blaming their lack of skill, they can blame their lack of attentiveness and motivation.
Being told to just ignore or distract themselves from the other emotions they are experiencing is not helpful as this person’s friends may believe. Even though these feelings are painful and sometime heartwrenching, they are better to experience rather than ignore. Feeling these emotions can help the person to cope with the loss and eventually move on; experiencing them allows one to let go easier than if he or she simply bottles them up and pretends to be okay. Even if being sad makes other people uncomfortable and sad as well, people should try to face these emotions as they may lead to a better sense of closure and eventual
Which is good because it will only leave us with one option, to read on and hopefully find the answer to our questions. Within reading the first chapter of her book, she includes details that capture us emotionally. The feeling of not being wanted is critical when it comes to self-love, how can we find confidence within ourselves if we don’t even feel wanted in the place you lay your head? On top of that, abuse just makes things harder, not only on that specific individual, but anyone who must put up with it. These subjects only add more curiosity as we try to get a better understanding of the first chapter.
Low self-esteem makes you feel not confidence, wanting to be/look like someone else, always worried what others might think, pessimistic. This is bad and no one should have low self-esteem.

Procrastination can lead to an unsuccessful outcome because when stress and anxiety come in other problems do to like delaying your career or projecting building up a pile of things you were supposed to do or were going to do, this leads to emotional break down and consistently nailing yourself down and never feeling proud. Hating yourself for not completing things you could have easily done and giving up. Giving up is the most common thing people do, this leads to depression and other health risks. Drug abuse might even come in at this stage. Sometimes when our minds accept failure we tend to push our self-down and think we can’t do anything, so we give up.
