Improve self-esteem and you’ll improve your chronic pain! 

  So key! How many people with chronic pain balance self-care with self efficacy or mastery? Not many,  from my professional experience.

   Thinking in dichotomous, or all or nothing, ways increases pain levels. Self- care will equal being ‘selfish’ rather than fueling one’s ‘self’. The same will go for being all things to all people or ‘self-less’. Can a car go without fuel? No way!

   Modify this thinking error by balancing self-care and doing things for others, and you’ll reduce your pain!
