Because we are always seeking verification of who we are and if that inner perception is negative then we will likely marry and continuely seek out those whose view of us matches the internal ideal. The "good" people who praise us, just don't feel right. It is as if they are delusional and just don't know us!!!

Once considered the province of “New Age” groups, the self-esteem movement has been catapulted into the American mainstream, with a California task force and other groups now claiming that raising self-esteem is the panacea for social ills from alcoholism to poor grades and poverty.In this wide-ranging and strikingly original book, William Swann not only dissects the mistaken assumptions that underlie current self-esteem programs, but also incisively analyzes the nature of self-worth and the “self-traps” that make achieving and sustaining a sense of self-esteem so difficult.Drawing on more than a decade of research, much of it his own, Swann reveals the surprising regularity with which people suffering from low self-esteem gravitate to relationships in which they are denigrated or abused. Swann shows how such people are caught in a crossfire of conflicting desires for praise and for confirmation of their negative self-views. He persuasively argues that our feelings of self-worth can only be understood as part of a larger, intricate dynamic involving society as well as the self.Not a self-help book, Resilient Identities offers a fascinating, controversial exploration of how self-esteem conflicts develop and are played out in all of our relationships. And it discusses what we can do to encourage and sustain feelings of self-worth in our society.
Reviews about Resilient Identities: Self, Relationships, And The Construction Of Social Reality (3):
Soustil
Because we are always seeking verification of who we are and if that inner perception is negative then we will likely marry and continuely seek out those whose view of us matches the internal ideal. The "good" people who praise us, just don't feel right. It is as if they are delusional and just don't know us!!! Our sense of self is made up of patterns of behavior that we repeat, usually without our even thinking about them. We may marry an alcoholic like dad and divorce him only to find another becuase the initial behavior of that person validates who we think we are. VERY interesting reading as is his SELF-TRAPS which is available used.

I gained some insight into how people can select other people and interpretation of events to reinforce their own self views, even if those views are negative. It certainly explains some things I've noticed in relationships and even friendships. A useful book for gaining some more insight into relationships.

"Self", "Sense of self", "Self-esteem", "feelings of self worth" are terms very widely used in today's world. This book provides a clear understanding of what these words really mean, and how thoughts about ourselves affect our daily lives.
I especially find the debunking of wide-spread misbeliefs helpful. For example, dogmatically convincing yourself towards high self-esteem in fact isn't a solution to everything. Also, people may actually want to be mistreated (knowingly or unknowingly) because of particular thoughts about themselves.
The fact that the book is written by a professor who dedicated his life to researching the psychological construct of the self adds persuasiveness to the content. Too many times do you see these books written by pseudo-scientists who make erroneous claims based on personal logic or anecdotal evidence. The points made in the book are backed by empirical research done by the author and others.
This would be a good starting point for readers who are interested in the psychology of the self and how it influences us
